ACOUSTIC WARFARE: The device seen on the top, called a Long Range Acoustic Device, concentrates voice commands and a car alarm-like sound in a 30- or 60-degree cone that can be heard nearly two miles away. It is about two feet square and mounted on a swivel such that one person can point it where it's needed. The volume measures 140-150 decibels three feet away - louder than a jet engine - but dissipates with distance. Read more about it here.

Police officers accused of killing attorney

Guatemala_Lawyer_Killed_GUA

Before he was killed on Mother's Day, Guatemalan attorney Rodrigo Rosenberg left two YouTube videos.

"If you're watching this, it's because I was killed by the president,'' said Rosenberg in the first video.

Rosenberg was shot dead while riding his bycicle. Police were unable to find witnesses. It was scientific evidence that lead them to arrest 10 suspects. 

The trail of evidence: Surveillance video showed a tricked-out Mazda leaving the crime scene. Detectives identified the owner of the Mazda as William Gilberto Santos Divas and intercepted about 12,000 of his cellphone calls.

Six of the 10 suspects were current or former police officers. Santos is allegedly the ringleader of the band of suspected hitmen. Analysts told the Miami Herald the arrests serve as a reminder that organized crime and the police and military remain bedfellows in Guatemala.

Father who killed wife and 5 kids plans to go to heaven

Mesac Damas, 33, told a Daily News reporter in Haiti that he blames "the devil" for making him cut the throats of his wife and five children. And said that "only God knows" why he did it. Suicide was not an option. He reasoned that would have prevented him from going to heaven.

Deputy Public Defender Mike Orlando told the Daily News on Wednesday afternoon that he is concerned about Damas' mental state. Here is the Daily News story.

Orlando can count on the prosecution's evidence of domestic violence. In the photo below, Guerline Damas, 32, is crying while police take pictures of injuries that she blamed her husband for.
