    I sometimes fly very small planes and I don't want one of these morons taking shots at me thinking I'm the FBI coming to steal their land. People like that are too cowardly to shoot at a plane they think has feds on it, but they just might be dumb enough to shoot at what they think is a drone.
    If you are flying your toys over property that doesn't belong to you without the owner's permission then you deserve to have your toys shot down.

    Deliberate destruction of government property, or righteous civil disobedience? Personally, I think the drones are unreasonable search because no warrant was issued, and unconstitutional laws should be disobeyed until repealed. But this has a public safety issue that sort-of muddys the water.

    What about privately owned drones? Can you shoot them?

    Walking through city centers and/or bars/disco's you can expect to be filmed. That is not the same as snooping in my bedroom. Filming inside a house should be only done with a warrant from a judge but if you are accidentally filmed while a drone is following or is on surveillance duty is not something that a warrant is necessary.

    Now if you are the target of said drone then a warrant should be acquired (except if they follow you after you already committed a crime which you were accidentally observed to have committed).

    I am also independent but the sad fact is that our society needs security and cops, fbi and even drones at times will be needed.

    Are you saying that a drone can fly up to your second-story bedroom window and film what's going on inside?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Apparently you can.

    "This afternoon, a stranger set an aerial drone into flight over my yard and beside my house near Miller Playfield. I initially mistook its noisy buzzing for a weed-whacker on this warm spring day. After several minutes, I looked out my third-story window to see a drone hovering a few feet away. My husband went to talk to the man on the sidewalk outside our home who was operating the drone with a remote control, to ask him to not fly his drone near our home. The man insisted that it is legal for him to fly an aerial drone over our yard and adjacent to our windows. He noted that the drone has a camera, which transmits images he viewed through a set of glasses. He purported to be doing "research". We are extremely concerned, as he could very easily be a criminal who plans to break into our house or a peeping-tom."

    No, I was not. The police has other options for filming someone in their bedroom/house.

    Interesting.

    To me, the advancement of technology does not change or invalidate existing legal tenets. The flying of a drone right up to a window is no different than crossing the property line and climbing a ladder up to the window. Neither is e-mail different than a written and sealed snail-mail letter.

    That is just MY view, though. Legal interpretations may differ, and your mileage may vary.

    As far as the sky being legal right-of-way, I don't disagree with that, but maybe because of advancing technology we should address this and establish a legal vertical limit where property does end or extend. Maybe 100 above the ground, or something similar.

    Exactly. Besides, I wouldn't worry about it, these guys are all talk. If they see a drone, they'll just go about their day as usual. Big talk does not equal big walk.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
