It happened again. Some people never learn.
I watched the woman as she loaded groceries into her car. She appears to be in good health and physically fit.
Here it comes. She looks both ways with a tight smile on her face.
She pushes the shopping cart into an empty parking space and leaves it there. Of course she doesn’t care that it is a spot for handicapped persons.
The woman hops into the car without a backward glance. I can see the smile of triumph on her face.
This is where I come in.
I lift a slim silver device and point it at her vehicle. A tight beam of electromagnetic radiation washes over the integrated circuits in the car’s electronics. The engine dies and the car coasts to the side of the road.
The woman gets out of the car and curses.
Break time is over.
I go back inside and get ready to bag some groceries.
