Curiosity question for the field: what’s the difference between drone surveillance and helicopter surveillance? For the latter has been happening for decades.
As I was growing up in semi-rural Florida, night-flying helicopters with search lights on them were routine. Later on, they added heat-seeking cameras in the hopes of locating in-home marijuana-growing operations.
This stuff isn’t new... if we’re complaining about losing privacy, searches without warrants, and government monitoring... well, sorry, but that ship has sailed — decades ago.
The only difference now is that it will be easier and cheaper for the feds/police/et al to do it. And the drones aren’t going to alert the entire neighborhood, like a chopper would.
Hey, your house, your address, and more have always been publicly accessible. It took Google Street View to make it creepy and easy for everybody to spy on one another. Drones will just do the same for the Powers That Be. But somebody’s gonna have to convince a judge that it’s wrong despite it having been routine for years.
