Eyes In The Sky, Not Such A Bad thing
I’m torn on this one. I understand that under B.H.O, the threat of losing our rights is frighteningly real. If you listen to the show, you understand that more government interference in our lives is one of the last things you will ever hear me advocating for. But, I can’t ignore the idea that a police helicopter could be performing the exact same task as a drone! Both are trying to catch the bad guy. What’s the difference? The noise the helicopter makes, and the physical size? If police need an eye in the sky, I don’t care what they use to get that perspective. I can understand why someone growing pot in their backyard might not want a police drone flying over their house. Unfortunately the ability to continue committing crime is not a valid argument for privacy. What I’m talking about is catching the criminal.
Some of you called the show today and tried to paint the picture of stealth government drones lurking outside our bedroom windows, watching every move we make. If you catch a glimpse of anything like that, snap a picture and send it my way. Until then, I’m finding myself leaning towards allowing police to use these tools to catch the bad guys. We’ll have a different conversation once the purpose of the drones moves past stopping crime.
