    Arming of domestic drones already being considered

    http://washington.cbslocal.com/2012/...mestic-drones/


    Well, that did not take long! I guess IR and high definition camera's watching over entire neighborhoods was not enough; now they have to be able to shoot people with rubber bullets and dispense tear gas from them as well!

    The day you're possibly getting mugged and one is around and saves you will be the day you stop crying about it.

    also if they shoot people coming over the border with those it's gonna be funny.

    The day you're getting your rights taken away by a tyrannical government and need to revolution, but you can't because these things will simply shoot you in the head will be the day you start crying about it I guess.

    Eh not really worried about that part at all last I checked even the marines don't like the government unless you seriously believe the military fights for the government and not the people and the country.

    Government nowadays tend to be too inept to be successfully tyrannical. We won't have to worry until there are more competent leaders
    “…the whole trouble lies here. In words, words. Each one of us has within him a whole world of things, each man of us his own special world. And how can we ever come to an understanding if I put in the words I utter the sense and value of things as I see them; while you who listen to me must inevitably translate them according to the conception of things each one of you has within himself. We think we understand each other, but we never really do.”
    XKCD is always relevant. Always.

    "We don’t need a situation where Americans feel there is in an invisible eye in the sky"

    Indeed, we have enough paranoid people that believe that already, just stamp "Big Brother is Watching You; Obedience is mandatory" on the side. Maybe with a nice picture of Uncle Sam.

    If I am getting mugged I do not want some freaking angel from the sky to come down and spray rubber bullets at my mugger, I would probably end up getting hit if I was having bad enough luck to be getting mugged around here.

    So you'd rather he just mugs you and then you can go on an unfruitful hunt for him via the police? Yeah that will work out well.

    On the contrary though, I can't say I am the biggest fan of these. =S

    Okay, you "the government is taking away my rights!" people need to calm the fuck down and actually think for a moment before you say that. Please, just this once.

    The only difference, literally the only difference, between this and a police officer is that the drone can fly. I challenge anyone to find one thing that's even vaguely unconstitutional about this.

    the slipperiest of slippery slopes is the one that slides into a tyrannical government. Almost always. Stop light cameras? OMG POLICE STATE! More security on public busses? HEIL HITLER!
