    I concur. It looks like a mike. And for the sake of changing it up...catching ambient sound for a movie or something?

    Or I can be really un-fun and say it's a wi-fi antenna that intercepts blue tooth signals up to a half mile away. And they could be focusing it at anybody's stuff.

    Nope. He's "catching" things, not sound, but they are of a more serious nature.

    It is either a Glock or an AR15, but maybe an AK47.

    Whoa, that was quick...TinEye or did you see it somewhere else?

    Yup, it's called a "blue sniper rifle" and it does intercept bluetooth signals; variation of bluesnarfing. Here's a quote I found especially interesting:

    --------
    "John pointed the BlueSniper at the AON building, which was 0.6 miles (just about 1 km) from our position (this distance was verified by GPS after the shoot).

    It didn't take long for the MAC address of Bluetooth devices to appear on the laptop's screen. After a few seconds, John pointed the gun at the Library Tower / US Bank Building, which is the tallest building in Los Angeles. The building was .75 miles (a little over 1 km) from our position.

    As more Bluetooth devices started appearing, John said, "This building is full of Bluetooth! Look we got some Blackberries!" He also explained that, with multiple guns, it would be possible to track a single Bluetooth device as the person walked around. In less than a few minutes, twenty devices were detected - all at distances over a half mile away! We decided to quickly conclude the scan, given police activity in the area earlier in the day from a bomb scare."
    -----

    So, we have this guy, up on a metropolitan roof, with a "rifle", pointing it at different offices in buildings...
    Even without a bomb scare earlier in the day, that sounds like a BAD idea to me!

    "Hey, I've got a signal from that SWAT guy! He's pointing something back at me, I wonder if they have these too?"

The character inherent in the American people has done all that has been accomplished; and it would have done somewhat more, if the government had not sometimes got in its way."

    It's simply amazing what one can do with Schedule 40 water pipe.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.
