Oh what laws would those be? Been asked and no one has provided any. Since you even have a ready list feel free to post them.
forgive me, I said laws because I was trying to keep it short and sweet. However, there is a good defense of invasion of privacy if SHARK would try to
sue for damage to the drone. Not that anyone is going to admit to it.
I really don't see any major crime outside of possible misdemeanor tresspass. That's what it's called in this state if your were to peer into windows.
I know some states have felony voyeurism laws that apply to people telescoping into other peoples windows and what not. This is a state issue so it
would depend on the laws of that state.
And that's what my letter consisted of. Explaining the violation of privacy.
I know this much, If I had a camera hanging in my tree and we were neighbors. And my camera was there for the purpose to look into your home. I'm
wouldn't be civily liable for the damages to it if I were to destroy it without tresspassing. Or, Of course, you could call the cops and just have me
prosecuted that way. And they would take it down. But again, that's in this state.
In this state. Voyeurism and tresspass are all lumped into one charge varying by degree of felony to misdemeanor.
This is new ground certainly so it's definatley one for the courts. And that's what worries me most. For example, If this was challenged all the way
to the supreme court, (and eventually this case or another one like it will) I fear the ramifications of it if it were to go in favor of the SHARKs.
It would/could open the doorway to all kinds of additional invasive non warranted surveilance by law enforcement, all the way down to your neighbor.
I in no way support the pigeon shooters actions. I think it takes a certain sicko to do such things. But an advocacy group should be riling the
support of the people in favor of legislation against these acts. A national news coverage of something like this would turn a lot of heads. But
SHARKS intimidation tactics, past and present, borderline on verge of vigilante thuggery.
Sometimes SHARK and groups like it get so focused and emotionally charged about their "goal" that they forget there's a whole PR campaign that must be
fought too. And that my friend, is left up to the people.
