Unfortunately, Drones are here to stay! Love it or hate it, but accept it! They're cheap, they work, not very hard to operate. No cop can resist that! As long as we allow the legistlative, law enforcement, and penal axis to convince us that we should voluntarily give up our rights and freedoms for social order. And that says nothing about the defense lawyers. We are sunk! Sunk into a morass of misidentification. As a pilot, I know how hard getting a positive identification from the air. It seems easy until you try to do it. Very few police administrators will be able to resist the allure of 100% surveilance over people. Hate the mayor? Catch him with his girlfriend or boyfriend. It doesn't take a genius to see where this is headed. There are good reasons why the founders wrote the fourth amendment! Let's follow there lead and outlaw the use of these things.
My president was elected by dead people!

Yep. Drones are here to stay!

Ted Kazinski (una-bomber) WARNED in his manifesto that on the whole, society ebbs and flows (up and down) YET it is technology that keeps marching forward without decline.

Once something new is invented, it sticks around until the next BETTER thing comes along.

Like, we have cell phones today. Are we going to dump them and go back to land-line rotary dial phones? Nope.

Technology marches on; for the better or the worse.
