But rather than launching missiles, domestically flown drones could fill a variety of peaceful roles, from aerial photography and land surveying to law-enforcement duties such as monitoring red-light running and speeding.




They also could be used for clandestine surveillance, triggering privacy concerns from civil-rights experts who worry about indiscriminate snooping on law-abiding citizens, not just criminal suspects.




But the FAA will not decide how the drones are used and under what circumstances, he said. Those questions, he said, are for lawmakers and judges to decide.

Well, we have all been talking about this for quite some time now, and there have been reports of drones already being deployed across the U.S. It now looks like these will soon become commonplace. This is just an example of the complete corruption going on in the U.S. and the NWO. It sounds like they will let lawmakers and judges decide under what circumstances they will be used. My concern with this is that they will probably figure it is better to ask forgiveness than permission and just do whatever they want with these drones until they are stopped. Unfortunately as soon as everyone realizes it is out of control, it will already be too late.

Indeed.

Like the saying goes "Absolute power corrupts absolutely."

With the government having full access to your credit history, your medical records, your online activities... add drones that include FLIR (forward-looking infra-red) and real-time imaging... very scary stuff.

All these years people have been screaming out about "Big Brother", and very few took it seriously. Sometimes the boy crying wolf really is threatened.

Domestic use of drones only have one purpose. Total control over the population. The will not deter or prevent crime. ( fixed camera platforms prove that ) Lets face the facts we are all Slaves to the government and its sanctioned corporations.

Our founders morn our complacency.

Austrian military to use surveillance drones


Defense Minister Norbert Darabos says the drones could be used to help protect troops on foreign soil through surveillance as well as in case of natural catastrophes such as avalanches. He also says the unmanned aircraft may also be used to watch borders crossed by illegal immigrants but only if they do not violate "the private space" of individuals.
