...this wireless whirlybird comes equipped with a remote video camera, an infrared heat-seeking device and an onboard GPS. It's also capable of
carrying weapons, although the Sheriff said that there were no plans to weaponize the UAV. The 50-pound chopper is FAA approved to help track down
criminals on the run or assist swat teams in a standoff -- a blessing that should keep this police drone from being grounded. Hit the source link
below see KPRC's local coverage, "Big Brother" freakout and all.
This is a tale of information control.... some might say, social engineering, or propaganda; while others simply call it marketing.
The tone and tenor of the article describes the subject in such a way as to ensure the reader views any subsequent information about this 'news' with
a certain bias... if you will.
The source article comes from the Houston local news you can find here:
"New Police Drone Near Houston Could Carry Weapons"
It references a government document known as:
"UNMANNED AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS
Federal Actions Needed to Ensure Safety and Expand Their Potential Uses within the National Airspace System"
The source material raises questions about air traffic safety and privacy issues.... Which apparently did not sit well with the military industrial
complex intent to make certain these little hovering law enforcement tools become common place to use...
So... my conspiracy angle is this... The DHS calls the Pentagon (mothership of the Military Industrial Complex) who then calls their friends on the
payroll at AOL (www.wired.com...
) who use one of their holdings (Engadget) to reprint the news on a national
level with the tone changed from alarm to "coolness" (with a gratuitous jab at the "Big Brother freak out" business.... because any concerns simply
are "laughable," right?)
So... for those with any recognition of how people's opinions are "molded" ... you can see where this goes....
