theMightyRegeya: stevetherobot: FTFA: Colorado is vying to be one of six states designated as a test site for flying commercial drones over U.S. airspace.Why do you hate capitalism subby?Yeah, like those English people who biatch about "Big Brother" all the time. Those cameras are privately owned! Big difference.
Caffandtranqs: Rent Party: Caffandtranqs: Rent Party: Except here in Seattle, where the pants wetting hippies and fake hippy mayor McCheese would rather have the cops driving their multi-ton vehicles through traffic at high speeds to chase bad guys rather than popping the drone out of their trunk to follow him.Oh, who am I kidding. They just want to give those bad guys a hug and tell them to go back out to Westlake and provide culture. They're just misunderstood!You have not noticed that there is already air cover for the cops around here?There is? Do you know how much it costs to operate a helicopter? Do you know how much it costs to operate that drone? Do you know how long it takes to get a helo on site? Do you know how many helos they have access to? You could equip every squad car in the city with one of the drones for the cost of about a month of helos. They deploy much faster, and you can cover a much larger area with them in a crisis because you have more of them. If my kid goes missing, I would much rather have 10 drones on site immediately because they're in the trunk of a car, rather than waiting 20 minutes for the choppah to show up.How the hell do you not know about the helicopter drones in Seattle? They are little ones like the other drones you want, BUT they ended the program just last month because people seem to not dig living the spooky reality of "1984" science fiction. I believe it was Benjamin Franklin that said, "Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one." You care about cost more than your ability to somewhat live as a private citizen? You deserve neither of those things in the Franklin quote, but you are lucky there are LIBERALS to guarantee tham for you.
