vudukungfu: CSB/
I was born in the wagon of a travellin' .Show. My mama used to dance for the money they'd throw. Papa would do whatever he could.Preach a little gospel, sell a couple bottles of Doctor Good. Picked up a boy just south of Mobile. Gave him a ride, filled him with a hot meal. I was sixteen, he was twenty-one. Rode with us to Memphis, and papa woulda shot him if he knew what he'd done. I never had schoolin' but he taught me well with his smooth southern style. Three months later I'm a gal in trouble and I haven't seen him for a while, I got in one little fight and my mom got scared and said "you're moving with your auntie and uncle in Bel-Air"I begged and pleaded with her...well you know how it ends, I'm sure.

If I could favorite you again I would.

washington-babylon: sethstorm: think of the kinds used in Afghanistan
That is, drones like the Predator and Reaper that have some size & power to them - with the ability to carry larger ordinance.

The Switchblade would only take out people, but leave the trailers to be moved. The larger ones could take out both and ensure that there's no vehicle for someone else in their group to take over.

But the larger drones would have a greater risk for collateral damage. Use the smaller drones, then have the police remove the vehicles and you have minimal cleanup and repair costs.

For smaller encampments, I can see that happening. Think of a nasty deterrent that ends up taking out a noncompliant Traveller.

For the larger groups where they're able to cause massive damage as a group, better to use the Reaper or Predator. Such groups are likely to terrorize entire towns at a time; the idea would be to make their presence a liability unless they *like* being turned into crispy critters with plastic frosting. Collateral damage costs would be more than outweighed by saving a town from destruction.

NephilimNexus: In the USA we use much more efficient and permanent solutions to these sort of problems.

Are you trying to say that the people of Europe don't have final solutions??
