In the wake of the Boston bombings, the president of the largest Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) organization wasted no time in pushing for drones - as some predicted those in the industry would.



Michael Toscano, president of the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International, said UASs could have provided critical situational awareness for first responders and law enforcement in Boston.

Before those who show up, and want to shoot the source of this article does one really need to be reminded of just how far police in this country have been "militarized" ?

30 years ago one would scarcely recognize what our parents called "police" and what we call police today.

Assault weapons,air support,flash bangs,Apcs,EOD robot's and now drones I guess considering the evolution of the police over the past three decades this was only a matter of time.

Perfected in wartime now used for civilian time at what point do we say enough is enough?

I say it's long since past time to start standing up, and saying no when the streets of America start looking like the streets in some far away distant land we have gone too far.

Agreed. This is BS. I'm on the fence that every tragedy is a false flag but it sure does make it hard to overlook when all fit an agenda of some sort. Maybe the govt. can put anything to good use with the help of msm!

Sadly, its things like Boston, that will make the Drones more Acceptable to John Q Public.

This Oppurtunity will not be wasted.

Sad Days Ahead.

Maybe with the sheer volume of photos overwhelming the web will open a few eyes to the fact that there are always other scenarios that could have taken place. Not to just wait and be told what the truth is. I hope this one maybe opened a few more eyes, I hope!

To tell you the honest truth I was extremely surprised that there weren't drones flying above the Boston Marathon as there seemed to be some sort of training exercise going on and I assumed drones would be a part of that. I kept expecting to see "drone eye view" footage on the news reports. Who is to say that they weren't and were circling up high enough not to be noticed? As much as we may hate it I think drones are here to stay!

Yeah they are not going anywhere expect to see more of them from government agencies, all the way down to even "news" organizations.
