Yes, but why bother to patch such an exploit in an OS that you've already killed off yourself? Why not open up the market to let people take advantage of the hardware rather than let it end up in the Landfill? The answer of course is, "because they're Microsoft, duh?", but what value did this add?

It wouldn't need to shine directly into the eyes of the audience - a lower power IR laser with a rotating diffraction grating could be projected onto the screen - invisible to the naked eye, very low risk of eye damage and would wreak havoc on most digital video recording devices...

It it was private event, then the police should not have been responding unless the people in charge of the "private" event called and told them to. When the police enter a "private" event without being summoned and do what they did, then they are even more at fault than if they entered a "public" event. The rules of free speech have no connection to public vs. private and any time the government attempts to limit your right to free speech, it is a violation of the 1st Amendment.
