On flying remote-controlled vehicles

A UAV in police is just another tool, seriously.


To me, there's a code proposed and supported. All that needs to happen is implementation.

Ok, conspiracy theorists. Let's go. Is the thought of cameras above your head, watching your every move that frightening? Is camera with wings the icon of a military state?

I'll fight that with: these aerial vehicles are not cheap. Flying them requires money. Imagine how expensive it would be to run the amount of "vehicles" to fly over your hometown (close enough and slow enough for accurate facial recognition, by the way).

Aren't there stationary cameras already there doing this?

I thought so. I'm not looking to end this debate, these are personal viewpoints and not of Cygnus Law Enforcement Media.

Thank you, stay safe.
