Should Police Use of Drones Be Permitted?
Surveillance drones would be used to monitor high crime areas and dangerous ongoing situations. This is a good thing, imho. All this stuff about the drones spying on people's back yard activities is just silly, imo. For one thing, there would never be enough drones to do that comprehensively. For another, even though US law enforcement individuals sometimes act in questionable ways, there's really no reason to believe that any level of government would use surveillance drones in a way that contradicts people's right to privacy.
My opinion is that surveillance drones won't affect people's privacy, and will help wrt the enforcement of the law.
