ACLU Releases Report on Use of Drones In America
The ACLU has released a report on domestic use of drones. Shorter version: They are coming, to be used as tools of law enforcement in spying on all of us.
Unmanned aircraft carrying cameras raise the prospect of a significant new avenue for the surveillance of American life. Many Americans have heard of these aircraft, commonly called “drones,” because of their use overseas in places like Afghanistan and Yemen. But drones are coming to America, and, as an ACLU report concludes, protections must be put in place to guard our privacy
It is anticipated that the FAA will propose new rules early in 2012 that would make it easier for law enforcement agencies to get permission to use drones in the U.S.
