Why Is A Government Drone Flying Over A Sacramento Neighborhood?
CBS Sacramento ^ | May 17th, 2018 | Unattributed

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Neighbors say they’re furious over a drone that’s flying over the neighborhood, and we’ve found out it’s tied to a government agency not many people have even heard of.

The mysterious drone has been spotted during late-night hours, hovering over residential neighborhoods and looking down on homes.

John Mattox first spotted the mysterious drone about a month ago.

“The drone would fly over here, come over my neighbor’s house, fly over our house right here,” he said. “You come home from work, it would be operating, go to bed it was still operating, and this would repeat day after day.”

His neighbors in Sacramento’s upper Land Park neighborhood wondered what it was doing.

“It just doesn’t feel good,” said Ben Allen. “It hovers around. You don’t know what they’re looking at and monitoring.”

Neighbors say they’ve heard the drone flying in the early morning hours, well before sunrise.

This week, they learned it’s being flown by the Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency (SHRA). It manages two nearby housing communities, Alder Grove and Marina Vista. Those complexes have seen serious crimes, including a fatal shooting in January and a triple homicide in 2016.

Four miles from my house.

Why would a Housing and Redevelopment Agency need a drone?

For what possible purpose?

There is a public housing complex adjacent to this neighborhood in question.

Is it legal to laser-blind a drone?

Maybe it’s one of the mosquito control drones from Placer County that’s lost its way?

As for drones, we need to remember that ISIS put some idea or intention to commit drone attacks so.....who knows?It could be Jeff Sessions looking for pot smokers. Hopefully is is about MS 13 or rounding up illegal invaders.

No, it’s GORT and Kla-Tu is controlling it from one of the apartment building roofs.

A drone in the air plus triangulation on the ground can quickly and accurately identify any gunshots being fired.
