    The idea of domestic spy drones sickens me.

    I don't like the thought of being spied on, to prevent me from offending the Government.

    Because, when the operators lose control of the drone (as they have many times in the past) and the drone crashes into a school or civil rights march :)tongueout:) the explanation will be self evident. But, until then I am sure it will be lauded by the law enforcement crowd as the greatest thing since sliced bread.

    So if your objection is to all drone aircraft, why specify "spy" drones?

    That was kind of a rhetorical question; your explanation is pretty clear. Thanks.

    You'd expect these things in the sky over North Korea, America... not so much.

    How do you define the word 'Freedom'?

    Do you consider any use of drones legitimate within the United States?

    From my RC days, I think all you need to do is broadcast the same signal as the controller, confuse it and it will crash. I'm sure they have some sort if increption, but won't long before those hacker types start figuring it out. Shooting one down with a gun would probably get you in TONS of trouble probably more than you would of been to begin with. Plus you never know where those bullets will land.
    It would be fun though to mess with some protester or someones with them. Make em think the gov is watching them. I've got some friends right now that I'd like to mess with like that.

    What does the drone see that LE helicopters and fixed wing aircraft don't? Where does it go that they can't?

    That's where I was headed.

    The same observation tools can be fitted onto manned aircraft.

    The association with using drones against "enemies" in war zones, that connotation is what influences people's negative opinions about drones.

    The reason the military uses drones is to reduce air crew casualties. Replacing manned LE aircraft with UVAs would accomplish the same goal. Anyone object to that?

    :cool:

    Sorry to butt into the conversation, but I figured I'd put my 2c in here. And yeah I know I'm probably gonna get a lot of backlash for this, but here it goes anyway.

    While I do think that drones simply monitoring civilians/American Citizens is a gross violation of the 4th amendment and shouldn't be tolerated, I do however believe there are circumstances when drones can be used for surveillance domestically. For example, monitoring terrorists, or expanding the operational capabilities of our border patrol guys. I know it's a sensitive topic, but there it is.
