Funny, I recall several years ago, people warning of these military style drones being used against the American public and the so called well informed called them, “Conspiracy nuts”.

Where are they now?

“The military version of the Predator B drone carries 100-pound Hellfire missiles, but the Homeland Security’s Customs and Border Protection (CBP) says the 10 drones in its domestic fleet are unarmed.”

Note that they don’t say that their drones CAN’T be armed, just that they’re not armed for now. How comforting to know that a DHS drone can go from unarmed to armed in the amount of time it takes to hang a missile on the rails.

Now that this has been published the perp in question will know to just slip his cell phone into the purse of some 82 year old woman and watch the fun ensue.

Imagine the crowded airspace on a Saturday night in Chicago?

The only upside to this one is watching high technology fail miserably.

Part of our military superiority comes from not disclosing the stuff we have at our disposal. Using such hardware on Americans is undermining the tools of military superiority around the globe.

***Homeland Security design requirements specify that its Predator B drones “shall be capable of identifying a standing human being at night as likely armed or not”...***

‘LIKELY’ armed or not. Nice.

Bad as this already is, they won’t even be sure the Americans they kill are even armed or not. Suppose a 3-yr old carries his/her toy nerf gun home from grandma’s house? Too bad, sucka...

Looks like those little hand held laser pointers will come in handy after all.

“This could violate Fourth Amendment rights as well as Second Amendment rights."

CLUE: this administration operates as though there is no law that constrains what it does, therefore the US citizens have no rights. Don't believe me, just observe what the Congress has done each time obozo, Holder and the dyke have broken laws. The American citizens who follow this and the previous administration's laws that are contrary to our constitution are doing nothing short of placing the government's noose around their own necks.

What we need is a technology that identifies agents of the feral government.

How will it know a civilian from a non-civilian?

And to think, fifty years ago Emanuel Cellar wanted a radar designed so police could drive around, zap people and see if they were carrying a gun.

Wonder if it can distinguish between a gun, pocket knife, belt buckle or pocket of change.

I would hate to get blasted because I had a roll of quarters for the toll roads.

And when the first drone shoots up an innocent person, who gets put in jail or sued?
NOBODY!
Just like the “accidental” break ins by police where they shoot up the first person they see with a TV remote.

I wonder if someone could take one down with a 30-06 with a 4x16x40?
