That brings up a good point. While I personally would never damage government property, I can imagine how many feel as you do - especially .... wait for it.... in the city! Where all the crime happens!


What good is a 300,000 dollar remote-control helicopter with a camera on it if all of the criminals have guns? Think about it... every year people shoot in the air for fun every day especially on new years.

I doubt our government can afford to keep these things airborne... in the city anyways. It would just be too tempting for some. Just look at what happened to all the cameras they put up in neighborhoods.....


Oh you know what they will do - they will make it murder to shoot one out of the sky. Similar to the dogs. They can shoot your dog for fun - but shoot their dog and you get life. I am not saying all cops are like that (dog murderers), but there are some. I would imagine the toy helicopters will be a similar situation. Otherwise they will all get shot down pretty fast I would imagine... unless they are bullet proof.

Why don't they just buy a 25 dollar one at the gas station and put a web cam on it? whatever... it all seems unnecessary to me. They could replace the current helicopters with them, but I don't think they would be foolish enough to keep them airborne 24/7....right?

The Gadsden Alabama police chief just recently found out that they have two UAVs they didn't know about, and had them for two years. They are I believe similar to this one, and were bought with a grant from Homeland Security. They only reason he found out about them is that the FAA sent out a notice of who was allowed to operate UAVs, and they were on the list.

Can we get a link? It is hard to take your word for it on this one. This needs its own thread.

These are the people we trust to discern who gets thrown in cages and who doesn't?

What's next? They forgot about an underground runway with an F-16 in it? How do you "forget about" 2 freaking UAV's they do cost a little bit of money.....Oh yes that's right... they are useless for making money and also for catching criminals.

My mistake carry on.

Because it didn't cost the police department anything. Homeland Security paid the money for them, and apparently someone forgot to tell the chief about them when they got the paperwork.



GADSDEN, Ala. (AP) -- An Alabama police chief says he recently discovered that his department has two unmanned aerial vehicles.

Gadsden Police Chief John Crane tells The Gadsden Times he learned two weeks ago the department has had the unmanned aerial vehicles since 2010.

The revelation came to light after the Federal Aviation Administration released a list of agencies certified to fly drones and unmanned aerial vehicles. The Gadsden Police Department was on the list.

Crane, who was named police chief in February, says he doesn't know why they were purchased. The cost was about $150,000, paid through a federal law enforcement grant.

Crane says the department's UAVs, which have video surveillance capability, haven't been used because there hasn't been a need for them.

Youd like to think?!?!?!.... That of all the things that god could do, he wrecks two vehicles during a photo op.

This is a horrible missuse of resources, but this by no means justifies some devine retribution by wasting more resources

Why are people saying sweet? Thousands of dollars was just wasted and people could have go hurt. It just goes to show that these things are unpredictable. This will not be the last time these things crash and do damage on American soil.

Did you just try to make us feel bad for laughing at this? Thousands of dollars was wasted when they bought it - and no one did get hurt. I could get hurt typing this to you but look at that - I just dodged another proverbial bullet.

The next one to crash and "do damage
" on American soil will be even more hilarious

First off, he who has faith in smaller matters will have faith in larger matters. Nothing is too small or too large for God to be involved, of course that doesn't mean God willed this to happen - but I do not count it out.

It's that mentality that holds humanity back.

Who cares how much it cost or what resource we lost as long as it was funny.

If you want to talk about recourse allocation, this is like a drop of water in the ocean of debt. The problem is that we squabble over resources at all vs sharing them, be it paper or natural.

On a national level, as far as resource allocation goes, until every teacher makes more than every garbage man - I don't really think anyone is taking this seriously. We act like children. More for me less for you and all that....

Implying that the drone only would attack an evil cop right. No chance of that cop being a good guy?

That might be the mentality of others but is it in your best interest or the interest of fellow humans to share that mind set? So if all the govenment commits suicide you would follow because that is the mindset you wish to follow?

You must forgive me, you see I took this kind of thing seriously - until I realized I was about the only one.

Should the government have bought them at all? No. Is it funny that it fell on their heads? Yes. No one got hurt, so it is very funny.

What is not funny is that the 1/100 people have 99/100 of the resources, and that's in a good country.

At this point I just accept that Satan is allowed to roam this world, laugh about it, and follow God. It took years of being "cynical" to reach this conclusion (the part where it is funny).

Sure you can only shed so many tears before you find bad things funny but that is not what the world needs right now. 2013 has to be the year this planet comes together because we might not get to see 2014.

But I think the first step is that everyone starts caring about our resources as a whole planet and not just nations.

Pipe dream I know.

Well, there are a lot of things that are so bad going on that this is very funny to me.

Genocide? Basic human rights are not present in many countries.Screw civil liberty - not even clean water? America losing it's constitution, the only official law in this world that makes sense and did not directly come from God?

A significant portion of the 99% thinking that the Occupy movement is a bunch of loonies because they are so used to listening to the propaganda from the 1% that they will just bend over and tell you you're wrong if you don't bend over too...

Meanwhile - someone is running up on someones son or daughter right now about to kill them for their money. Wait a few seconds..there goes another... a couple kids got raped since I started typing this as well. All of this could easily be prevented - it would not be profitable though..

These are the things I choose to complain about. The rest - I generally laugh at (depending on what it is, and if anyone got hurt).

Many cops, I would think, go in with good intentions. While the street can corrupt them, what mainly corrupts them is the policy and training.

I would work with police to catch child molesters, cold blooded killers, and you know TRULY evil men.

I would not do normal police work, because it is borderline evil. I remember as a teenager... the things they did to some kids in my area...... In this day and age? Beatings - searches every day - extortion..... hey these are freaking high schoolers with bad lives already. Criminal yes, evil!? The only evil I saw there was in the cops. Those kids didn't know what they were doing the cops did.

That is part of the reason I wanted to be a cop, to try to be a part of the solution. I realized that I would have to do regular police work, and kick in doors and raid families that don't deserve that treatment - shoot their dog infront of the kid - and send their dad to prison because he had a string of tests that he failed and fell to Satan. I am not talking about truly evil men. I am talking about those that are lost.

I am sure there are many cops who went in with good intentions, and did not gave knowledge of the scheme before hand. I do, and would still like to do good in the world by helping stop true evil. The problem is, they won't let you do that without being completely evil yourself first.
