the government has all the info it needs on you. a drone will not add to it. the govt can get anything it wants about you. it is silly to think that you have privacy just because you close you blinds.

Pretty much. I'll reiterate that Americans do NOT have the right to privacy. Even now some government employee in some agency is probably aware of what we're doing on this board.

Not that hard to imagine really.

FStv isn't exactly a Tea Party source.

I'm just the messenger, attacking me doesn't change the facts. Surveillance drones will be used by private corps. Update:

Ray Kelly, New York City Police Department Commissioner, said that the department may use spy drones for conducting surveillance.

Kelly told a Reuters editor:“We’re looking into it. Anything that helps us.”Kelly said that adding a UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) as a surveillance tool would be helpful in monitoring protests in the city. He said that the department might start with smaller drones available for purchase online or in stores. Kelly noted that the drone could be helpful in assessing the size of a demonstration.
The Federal Aviation Industry is still working out the details of a rulebook that will regulate how UAV's will be used within the US. The US Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, already use surveillance drones to monitor and secure borders. There are many other agencies who are applying to the drones. Privacy advocates argue that any blanket surveillance violates the fourth amendment to the US constitution :

Now, depending on you town or city, it may be banned. Roanoke, Virginia for example, the towns sheriff has opted to not use them bcs the people are against it.

Of course they will. Somebody is making quite a bit off of these contracts. Probably, not too hard to track down. That is why I said they are waiting on FAA.

Technology is simply a tool. Technology isn't the problem.
