vpb: I am assuming that they don't realize that you can buy these things on Amazon for under $100. There are plenty of people flying them.It's cute that people think they have any sort of privacy out doors.
Waldo Pepper: and the news folks are so outrage about the drone videotaping the women sunbathing that they show the woman sunbathing
SlothB77: oops, nevermind. I thought this was a government drone, not a private drone.
skinink: Why did the kid talk to the news? Now the cop have more than enough to investigate him if they want.
Raider_dad: "Seconds from disaster!!!!"
lack of warmth: Waldo Pepper: and the news folks are so outrage about the drone videotaping the women sunbathing that they show the woman sunbathingExactly, everyone outrage over stuff happening in public and can be shown on tv without even contacting anyone for permission. Meanwhile some kid is really bummed about loosing his toy.

Do the needful: Do these farking journalists even read their own writing anymore...
Mikey1969: vpb: It's cute that people think they have any sort of privacy out doors.You do in your yard, and with a decent fence. If it can't be seen from the street, or a public area, you DO have a reasonable right to privacy. This woman, however, was at the public pool at the apartment complex, and therefore nothing illegal was happening, and her privacy was not violated in any way.THIS is the part that annoyed me more:In one shot, the drone races toward an apartment window, getting within feet of the glass.No, in one shot, the drone files by some apartments, and then someone on the news team zooms the farking camera shot, that drone didn't "race" to the window. They did the same thing with the sanbathing woman, also. Fark "Local 6", they get the sleazeball award for sure here.
vpb: skinink: Why did the kid talk to the news? Now the cop have more than enough to investigate him if they want.For what? Apparently there is no law against it, unless they can prove he was fapping to the sunbathing chick or something like that.
Fark In The Duck: Too bad someone can't post a picture of what a girl in a bikini looks like...
MNguy: farking right her privacy was violated
skinink: It says right in the article you can fly the drones as long as its in your line of sight. Once you lose sight you're breaking the law. And that's an FAA law he would be breaking.
firefly212: SlothB77: oops, nevermind. I thought this was a government drone, not a private drone.This is the thing... words words words... I could strap my go pro onto a 100 dollar model airplane and fly it around my mountain and it would technically be a "drone".... we've pissed our pants so much as a society that we're afraid of children's toys. God help our great nation if they ever saw the time I was 12 and managed to get remote triggered bottlerockets on a r/c airplane so my big brother and I could have "air battles" over the Chesapeake Bay.
Mikey1969: MNguy: farking right her privacy was violatedNo it wasn't, she was in a public place. It's why Google Street View cars can operate.And no, it's nothing like taking upskirt pics at the mall. She went out in the bikini, and decided to lay in a public place in that bikini. With upskirt pics, you have to work to get around accepted barriers(Outer clothing) to get intimate shots of private areas. Apples and 427 engine blocks, my friend.
