Liberty is too important to leave unsecured

Seems like the United States has started flying drone aircraft over domestic airspace. No amount of government tampering with freedom can be too much to keep freedom alive in the land of the free.

In a scene that could have been inspired by the movie Minority Report, one North Carolina county is using a UAV equipped with low-light and infrared cameras to keep watch on its citizens. It’s been dispatched to monitor gatherings of motorcycle riders at the Gaston County fairgrounds from just a few hundred feet in the air–close enough to identify faces–and many more uses, such as the aerial detection of marijuana fields, are planned.

Hooray science!

    It won’t be long before these thing flies low enough to scan inside your bedroom. We’re going to be hearing plenty of stories regarding broken drones as people invest in baseball bats.
