    I don't mind the idea of police using them for only specific tasks such as trying to locate fleeing criminals, or observing crowds in public places looking for shaninigans. But using them to patrol the suburbs, peering into windows and watching people go about their lives in their backyards is non of anybody's business.

    The wife and I on occasion, will enjoy our hot tube while void of attire. The hippie neighbor lady likes to sit in her deck and smoke weed. She has up a privacy fence, and the only reason I know she is out there smoking it is because I can smell it...and it's none of my fucking business.

    I agree and that's why I can't trust local governments not starting to use them for the wrong reason.

    Yup. I have no faith in our government
    to use this wisely and legally.

    Big difference between a helicopter and a drone designed for covert surveillance,
    but you already know that. Nice try any way.

    A hot tube... Sounds sexy ;) I really don't see America as a place that is so crime riddled that we really need every police agency having spy drones. According to the FBI, violent crime has dropped an incredible 13.4% since 2001! (http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2010/crime-in-the-u.s.-2010/violent-crime) But, I guess if they feel they need tanks, then drones aren't that much worse.

    Guaranteed these will be immediately used in "The War on Drugs", just like those no-knock search warrants that were just supposed to be for catching terrorists.

    Perhaps you need to read what you post before you hit the submit button.

    Many of your posts seem to be taken 1 way and yet you claim it was meant

    another way. I really understand why you have problems with so many people.

    Personally, this'll be the last time I waste my time responding to one of your posts.

    I found this extremely hilarious. Of course it might be because I'm still drunk.
