    US To Use Drones In Chris Dorner Manhunt

    US To Use Drones In Chris Dorner Manhunt | Zero Hedge

    Yesterday, as a task force of 125 officers, some riding Snowcats in the rugged terrain, continued their search, it was revealed that Dorner has become the first human target for remotely-controlled airborne drones on US soil.

    A senior police source said: “The thermal imaging cameras the drones use may be our only hope of finding him. On the ground, it’s like looking for a needle in a haystack.”

    Asked directly if drones have already been deployed, Riverside Police Chief Sergio Diaz, who is jointly leading the task force, said: “We are using all the tools at our disposal.”

    The use of drones was later confirmed by Customs and Border Patrol spokesman Ralph DeSio, who revealed agents have been prepared for Dorner to make a dash for the Mexican border since his rampage began.
    You can kind of see where this whole drone thing is going.

    That promise of "Only outside of the US" only lasted about a week, eh?

    Paying for helicopters is better? I presume you believe aerial search and engagement surveillance is warranted.

    The drone/drones won't be armed.

    They'll just zero in to locate him plus drones are a lot more cost effective......

    It's alarming how often the people that side with the government on matters such as these turn out to be wrong.

    If you are alright with police using helicopters you cannot oppose using drones for the same function.

    I love when the cops say this. It's a great way to gloss over all the tools the government is using that they don't really want to talk about.

    Can I use a drone or a helicopter to follow someone in the middle of a city?

    Why not? PIs use cars all the time.

    Right. And to them, it is suspicious when the media or an individual wants clarification.
