Gale Nordling President and CEO of Emprimus Corporation of Minneapolis, Minnesota appeared on the Michael Savage radio show on Tuesday February 16, 2010. An engineer and an attorney he spoke about Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) weapons which can be used by police to stop fleeing vehicles. He said the military is prepared to defend against these weapons. But the civilian sector is vulnerable. Computers and most electronic equipment with a chip can be burned by the EMP. Data can be destroyed. Nordling's company Emprimus is focused on providing technical assistance to civilians to shield against EMP attacks. It appears that civilians are clueless and think that anyone who speaks about these weapons is mentally ill. Criminals in and out of government who use these weapons also say that people who speak about them are mentally ill. It is not easy to tell who knows and who does not. I was only able to capture about six minutes of the segment with Nordling.

As Nordling says the technology is public, and anyone can use it. Police, criminals, psychiatrists, politicians have been known to employ these devices to annoy, to harass, to disable, and to try to kill their targets.
