If you see a Govt. drone overhead, open fire. jk
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
Drones should only be used to execute warrants or to respond to specific emergency calls. They should not be flying around with camera's rolling 24/7 recording people at random. In this particular incident, using the drone to avoid risking life was a good call.

I don't see what the big deal is, really. The guys used it to execute a search warrant. I don't see how using a drone is all that much different from using a helicopter. I would say it would be a breach of privacy if they started fitting infrared or thermal imaging systems.

I really don't think this thing is actually capable of hovering outside your window...
I really donít think this is capable of incorporating a camera, GPS and all the functions of a PDA.
