Charles Krauthammer, the conservative columnist spoke about the use of drones for domestic spying last night. He blasted the idea: “A drone is a high-tech version of an old army. It ought to be used in Somalia to hunt bad guys but not in America. Yes you can say we have satellites, we have Google Street, we have everything else, but that is no reason to accept a society where you are always watched by the government. “I would predict the first guy who uses a second amendment weapon to bring a drone down who is hovering over his house will become a folk hero.”

You probably missed the hyphen between the equal sign and the code...common thing, really. Also- I'm pretty sure you have to delete the &featurexxxxxx section too.edit on 15-5-2012 by MzMorbid because: god damn this root beer is good.
I'd love to see it done, hell I'd love to do it, but the first guy to do it will disappear from the face of the Earth. If some conspiracy theorist eventually stumbles upon documents indicating what they did with him, then he may finally get to be a hero, some 50 years after the fact.

Like Charles said the first person to shoot down a drone will be the first person who will be indefinately detained.
Pretty sad while there may be a legitmate use we all know that they will be abused so instead of those helicopters we all hear there will be nothing.
silent but deadly since they can also be armed and after all the government gave themselves the power to fight the war on terror in our own streets.
