So what do you think

about the new FAA regulations that will go into effect in 2015 that will allow your local police and other agencies and companies to fly small drones around your neighborhood?

Big brother in the sky?

As if there haven't been satellites that can pick out the hair on the mole on your face used by agencies for years?

Economically local police departments won't be able to afford flying a drone frequently.

That could very well be but I live in a small community and we have a swat team.

I am sure our local chief is just chomping at the bit to start flying these things around just to annoy people. He is that type of guy.

i think they should be limited to a size and weight not likely to penetrate a typical structure upon failure.. like a typical remote control plane or perhaps a bit larger. other than that i dunno..

How does this not violate the 4th amendment, the shaky arguments that justify narcotics dogs dont even come close to justify this whole new invasion of privacy.

You don't own the airspace, the government does.
I'm betting that's the excuse that'll be used to keep it alive.
