In the absence of state or federal laws, localities around the United States are proceeding to put unmanned aerial vehicles in our skies as they see fit.  The federal government has authorized the flight of 30,000 drones, and the use of drones up to 400 feet by police departments, at least 300 of which already have surveillance drones in operation.
 
States and localities can ban or regulate such actions.  Or they can proceed to endanger our health and our civil rights.
 
In Montgomery County, Texas, the Sheriff showed off a drone to the media but crashed it into his armored vehicle (thereby, I guess, proving that he needed an armored vehicle).
 
When the Dept. of Homeland Security challenged the University of Texas-Austin to hack into a drone and take control of it, the response was No problem, and it was quickly done.
 
Drones are not safe.
 
Surveillance by drones cannot comply with the Fourth Amendment.

First post - so I will keep it simple. 

Along with the gun confiscation actions (gun control is just to soft for the current actions)  'domestic drones' are the other wake up signal that seems to have caught the attention of somewhat average American who is not too engaged with politics or the risks of unconstitutional acts.

It seems there is a lot more cameras then I ever thought I'd see in my lifetime.

More and more we slip into a police state.
