The gov't has already been listening in on our phone calls and spying on us for years. This announcement has probably been made due to all the slack they received from the Edward Snowden fiasco. We are heading into a Communistic country. It will be here before we know it. They have been slowing stripping the people of their freedoms.

lol- not that far gone! I don't do facebook and I make sure my twitter settings don't hand out info to advertisers. Nothing is foolproof but I do what I can. I like my privacy but I am not concerned about a drones ability to watch me walk outside to get the mail. Now if I was digging a grave in my backyard....

Who knows , someday we may be getting our mail by drones . Maybe we will start to get our mail on time and we won't have to tip our drones for Christmas!

Drone technology for domestic police work is just around the corner if not here already. Just when you think you're doing something illegal and getting away with it,there's a drone lurking around the corner digitally taping you. Beware criminals !!

Actually, the drones will be used for watching meth labs in houses and homes being used for other drug activity. And watching people that are on welfare who are working under the table. And people who filed workman's comp to see if they're doing anything while drawing comp money. No problems here.....fine with me.

We will start having problems with drones when they start getting built with artificial intelligence in their software.

A company from Manhattan will be the first company at Griffiss Park testing unmanned drones. We wish them well !

<quoted text>Big problem is getting cops smart enough to run them responsibly that's why the new protocol requires ALL "LEO" drone activity to be recorded and logged offsite and machines that cannot fly if the log is disabled. This was a big concern people had and it was addressed. This Rome stuff is for civilian stuff. Not everything in the universe revolves around what the cops and criminals are doing.
The drones are very good and lucrative. Just not for NY. It's dying and not attracting any big tech just "Welfare Tech". Companies that deal with EDGE and all these taxpayer handout gigs everybody is crowing about like they're Microsoft all the time.
no such thing as responsible police use of drones. Not in a free country anyways.
Police can't even be trusted to use pepperspray or tasers responsibly.

Yeah I know. Still rather have them crash and burn. The money being stolen from taxpayers and spent on them is another issue. I'd rather the money go up in flames than up in the sky to further help the out of line government.

Law Enforcement will be using their own drones for surveillance. They will be small enough to fly over backyards and maybe peer into some homes for suspected illegal activity. Instead of having noisy choppers fly over the countryside looking for illegal pot farms, a quiet drone will be doing the job.

Most cops are drones now anyway. Talk about the idiots of society and we trust them with guns? Always a great combo...alcoholism, small mans disease, big egos,, steroid use, and a general lack of intelligence.

The city of Utica should take extra precaution with married cops whose marriage may be in trouble. They don't want another Joey Longo whack and slash job costing the city another $2M.
