I appreciate your thorough explanations to my hypothetical situations...
When it boils down to it, I'm just a little concerned about a misuse of power with these bird like surveillance tactics by the gov..?
I am in favor of them in these conditions (with/without warrant):
1. Border protection
2. Probable violence
3. Missing persons, especially children
I'm going to save this thread & show it to my man as our outdoor romantic encounters will cease to exist...too paranoid now...lol...>>>thanks DRONES!
The lnk really doesnt say anything but lets think a second.
3 cows is actually worth a lot of money.
Lets say you only own 3 cows and they get out and wander to the neighbors home. You sak nicely for them back and he won't deliver. You really don't want to shoot him so you call the police to resolve the issue. Results in an armed standoff.
Thats where the story gets odd. They must have bugged out or something, or why else need the drone?
So everybody against the use of the drone would have what else done? A human sneak around to look for the armed family?
Once you pull weapons on the police you are done. would you rather have a Navy SEAL team go in and kill them all over the cows?
You can stand on a mountain and look down on the Govt. (area 51) but the govt cant stand on the mountain and look down on you?
I bet the guy who owns the cows is happy. I bet if they were your cows you would be happy.
I'm thinking once you start an armed standoff against police, warrants arent really needed
In these circumstances would a helicopter need a warrant? How about a police car patrolling the neighborhood? These two modes don't need a warrant, do they? Especially in a stand-off situation. So you're saying here that a "helicopter" that is unmanned needs a warrant, but a helicopter that is manned does not?
I think you need to review when warrants are necessary.
Brossart's trouble began in 2011, when six cows wandered onto his property. After Brossart refused to return the cows to their owner, the Grand Forks, N.D., SWAT team was called in to arrest the man. What followed was a 16-hour, armed standoff that eventually ended when the SWAT team called in a Predator drone on loan from the Department of Homeland Security's Customs and Border Patrol. The drone was able to locate Brossart and his three armed sons on the property and let police know it was safe it make to make an arrest. Brossart was allegedly tased during the arrest.
