The drone has a high powered camera that can look into your car or even your home...
Kinda like what the NEWS helicopter has??? Gimme a fukking break! Oh no, the police now have cameras like we do... Oh heavens!
You don't get it, do you? They just keep pushing, and pushing and pushing. And taking a little more, and a little more. You have to stop this thing before it even gets a small foothold, such as this dumbass aircraft. Dumbass aircraft might not be all that great now, but in 30 years when something way better is around, they'll say "Well hell, we have already been using dumbass aircraft for 30 years! The new *Badass-easy-as-hell-to-spy-and-violate-constitutional-rights* is no different!" Even though it will have far greater capabilities. Point is, it won't always be a fairly easily avoidable drone. It will evolve over time to be something that works much
better, and is much harder to eradicate. Is that the world you want to live in? Cause you will, if you keep up that attitude. You ain't going to be a cop forever, and in all likelihood your kids won't be at all. Is that what you want for your friends and family?
This was on the news here months ago in a special report. They got busted trying to secretly test that shit out in some remote location. I dare that motherfucker to peek in my window. Its bad enough I hear that godamned police helicopter buzz my apartment building almost every night.
ROFL! You remember that story one member posted up about that police copter that got shot down with a 9mm? I laughed so hard at that story! They were constantly over some bad neighborhood, and I guess someone finally got tired of it and wanted some sleep and they took their 9mm pistol and got the luckiest shot this century, and hit the control stick and broke it off. Causing the helocopter to crash. That's some funny shit right there. No one got hurt, or else I wouldn't think it was funny. But I mean come on... you got to admit it's at least a little funny.
Honestly, it isnt anything new although it was shady as fuck how they were hiding it. Im guessing they wouldnt have said anything if the news never caught wind of it. Wouldnt have last long as a secret though.
I will say it isnt much different that a police helicopter flying around but I can only imagine a fleet of these things flying around at once since they will be so cheap compared to fueling and maintaining a helicopter.
Only thing is, they got to refuel that helicopter with way more expensive stuff. Not to mention all the maintenance and manpower that goes into it. Once you get past the initial investment, they are going to be far cheaper to fly than the manned helocopter. And one or two guys can probly manage 10-12 drones on a couple computer screens. And as such, will become a lot more of a threat to our rights than the helocopter ever thought about being.
