Are Miniature Drones Already Monitoring Americans ?

I was driving home on I-69 toward Indy last week at sunset. I looked to the sunset and saw a miniature drone flying a long. What is the purpose of these drones? Monitor OWS?

Cheap miniature versions of the unmanned aircraft used by the military could fall into the wrong hands, he told the UK's Guardian newspaper.

Quarreling neighbors, he suggested, might end up buzzing each other with private surveillance drones.

He also warned of the risk of terrorists using the new technology.

Mr Schmidt is believed to have close relations with US President Barack Obama, whom he advises on matters of science and technology.

"You're having a dispute with your neighbor," he told The Guardian in an interview printed on Saturday.

Eric Schmidt is one of the world's leading figures in digital technology
"How would you feel if your neighbor went over and bought a commercial observation drone that they can launch from their backyard. It just flies over your house all day. How would you feel about it?"

Warning of mini-drones' potential as a terrorist weapon, he said: "I'm not going to pass judgment on whether armies should exist, but I would prefer to not spread and democratise the ability to fight war to every single human being."

Remotely piloted airplanes, or drones, are increasingly responsible for projecting America’s military might around the world.

Missile strikes from the drones are causing increasing ire from Pakistan to Yemen to Somalia. But imagine drones coming home to roost, in the skies above America.

It's already happening, albeit without the missiles.

Some adventurous amateur spirits who call themselves “Team Black Sheep” are making amazing videos with ingenious miniature drones (watch the video above).

They're also making a statement, showing security lapses in America's airspace. From the majesty of New York’s Statue of Liberty and San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, to the gaudy spectacle of the Las Vegas Strip, the drones fly around some of the U.S.’s most-famous landmarks – sometimes buzzing by just a couple feet away.

A federal law that flew under the radar last March allows surveillance drones to monitor U.S. borders.

Cash-strapped police departments have started exchanging expensive helicopters for inexpensive drones.

In two short years, commercial drones will be allowed to take flight, putting even more eyes in the sky.

Fasten your seat belts, America.

I thought most drones were in Washington D.C. area, not they are?

Every traffic light in this country has camera on it. It snaps a photo of you as you pass through. That photo goes into a data base that matches the most wanted people. Satellite technology can look right into your bedroom. Law enforcement will use the drones soon in what they call hot spots. Americans want big brother till somebody gets caught peeping and leaking info or uses it to kill people. Cameras are my business and they are everywhere but drones will grow faster.

If you really want to see these drones go look at night with special night vision glasses. It is amazing. They are putting out nanobots and chemtrails. They are using devises to find guns. The US and FEMA are ready to act on conjunction with the UN to start putting freedom loving Americas in death camps. Why do you think they were buying all them bullets? Obama wants to be emperor of the world.

They have been using gun finding devices in California for years to track gangs who fire off guns they say. yes they have cameras on many traffic lights, Taking down peoples license and using their face scanning devices as well.They recently used that technology at the last 500 and nascar races.For about the last 60 years they have also used tv sets radioes and your outlets in you're homes to listen in on your conservations when they take your picture at the drivers license branch now , you're image is being scanned all over and your eyes retina scanned and recorded. They used in the past two elections your credit card spending as a tracker in who you would vote for in the elections.BMI GUY YOU WORK FOR BMI THE CONCRETE CROOKS LOL YES THEY HAVE TECHNOLOGY TO LOOK INTO ANY HOME OR BUILDING EVEN DURING THE NIGHT.THEY NOW EVEN HAVE CLOAKING DEVICES TO APPEAR INVISIBLE WHILE IN THE SKY, THEY ALSO HAVE UNIFORMS THAT CAN BE WORN AND HAVE THE SAME INVISIBILITY .YES DRONES ARE EVERYWHERE AS YOU LOOK UP AND ALL AROUND, YES THEY HAVE MICRO BUG DRONES WITH MICROPHONES AND BUILT IN CAMERAS .I'M TAKING BUGS AS SMALL AS AN ANT AND SPIDER.THEY FIRST EXPERIMENTED WITH REAL BUGS THAT HAD TINY MICRO CAMERAS AND MICS ATTACHED TO THEM .

UAS: Wasp
The Wasp Micro Air Vehicle (MAV) is a small, portable, reliable, and rugged unmanned aerial platform designed for front-line day/night reconnaissance and surveillance. Wasp is the result of a multi-year joint development effort between AeroVironment and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

With a wingspan of 72 cm and a weight of 430 grams, the Wasp is AeroVironment’s smallest UAS. Wasp can be manually operated or programmed for GPS-based autonomous navigation.

To ensure system interoperability, Wasp uses the same advanced technology found in other AeroVironment small UAS systems, such as Raven RQ11-B and Puma, and is controllable through a common Ground Control Station.

This began long before GWB or Obama held the command, This began the day we put satellites into space to monitor our so called enemies.This began the day the telephone was invented and the TV set you watch and think that they can't hear what you say or watch you also.This began when electricity was discovered and piped into homes and buildings.This began when sonar was discovered and radar.Yes this began when lasers were invented,, They can take a laser beam and focus it on a well planted prism embedded in a glass window and listen to your entire conversation as though you are standing right next to them.You really think many crimes are solved just by detectives hoofing it. video is just a front for the evidence they already have via recording devices at their hands in all of our homes right now.That's given the power is on. true many crimes in inner city often take place in abandoned homes or dark alleys .

Upon testing, a shuttle winds up being in every point in the Universe simultaneously, which, if you’re going literally infinitely fast, at least makes a kind of weird sense. However, the effects of this cause pilot Tom Paris to start mutating, growing and absorbing various organs, which understandably makes him a little nuts. So he decides to kidnap Captain Janeway—naturally—and steal a shuttle in the hopes of going Warp 10 again.
This time, both Janeway and Paris devolve into lizards, mate, have babies, get found by the Voyager crew, and then are bombarded by anti-protons to destroy the new mutated DNA and return them to their former selves.
Dude, step away from the bong.
