Drone aircraft may prowl U.S. skies

Lovely….. Just what we need, a “domestic surveillance market”. Sure, there are plenty of legitimate uses, but don’t cameras on street corners, and cameras in the sky bother you?

We now have cameras on corners, that issue you a ticket if you run a red light. How about we put these up over I-15, and issue speeding tickets to everyone going to Vegas?

    Careful of your suggestons…I remember an episode of SeaQuest where the Captain was riding a motorcycle and a remote scanner tagged his bar code/license plate for speeding…certainly could see it in our future (imagine the extra income for the first few months…).

    If I have to be afraid they’ll copy my suggestions, because they’ve never heard of them before…. then we’re in an even bigger mess than we think.

    I’ve already accepted it as “normal.” We have six traffic light cameras here in Beaverton and another two or three mobile ones for speeding that caught Mom a couple of months ago. Everyone local drives really nice. 🙂

    Satelite coverage is good enough to see most everything so if I’m skinny-dipping in the back yard or sunning on my deck I figure I’m showing all my scars off to somebody.

    Drone airplanes only concern me with their interaction with smaller, private aircraft. My brother is up there putzing around and more stuff in the air, especially drones, means more things to react to that may not react properly to him.

    Unless it some legislation is introduced to make domestic drone surveillance illegal (not likely, considering any unconstitutionality of it has pretty much been ruled out), the force of economics will have them patrolling soon enough.

    But they aren’t drones, mind you. They’re “unmanned airborne homeland terrorism discovery and deterrence devices”.
