Drones probably will be able to save lives by allowing police to hang back during chasing criminals on roads.

Drones, like guns are neither good nor evil. It all depends on who is controlling them.

An honorable government would use them only when absolutely necessary, a corrupt one will use them as a means of controlling the citizens.

The question is, what do you think the current administration will do with them?

Your forgetting to mention all the innocnet bystanders who get killed in the drone strikes. I don't want to live in a police state. I want to live in a free country.

what does "innocent bystanders" have to do with their domestic use as described by cjb?

Have you been to a hobby shop or toy place lately? Domestic drones are not the purvey of the military or law enforcement but rather of every manchild with a couple hundred bucks who wants to take pictures all over the neighbourhood.

Re Anti-Bush-Obama

How would a drone used to make police car
chases safer make our country less free?

It seems to me this makes it more sure
criminals will get caught, and less chance
innocent people will get hurt in the process.

Less crime, more freedom, that is an aspect
of freedom isn't it?

Over 170 children were murdered in drone strikes last year. My life is not more importnat than theirs because they are foreigners. Tell me again how drones don't kill innocent bystanders.

Re Anti-Bush-Obama

Everything in your response while true, doesn't pertain. There is no intention of having armed drones here in the US. Nor was I referring to armed drones when I said they could help save lives if used during police chases.


again has nothing to do with domestic drones or this thread
