    Like the raptors in Jurassic Park, they’re always testing the fences and capable of diversionary tactics. A cellphone jammer that can be remotely activated would immediately put a damper in the plans of these thugs, though I feel for the poor souls who’ll be in the way of this horde.

      A “cellphone jammer” would also put lives at risk, as members of the public would be less able to contact the emergency services or family, friends etc. to warn them away from the area (to give but two examples). They are illegal for a very good reason.
