That's not a fair characterization. Their understanding of Civil liberties differs from ours, but I can pretty much guarantee you that the average European's chances of having his life ruined by his government or its penal system are much lower than the average American's. They don't lock people up and give them permanent records for every little fricking thing like we do, for instance.

Sure it is.

Fair enough, but I'm not sure that relates directly to civil rights.

UAVs are no different than the aircraft used to patrol the skies now. The number 30,000 sounds alarming--mostly because it's bull shite and has been denied by the FAA.

(For perspective, the US military currently operates between 5500 and 7000 worldwide).

And our drone fleet expanded from 60 to current levels under the last administration. It's simply a function of technology--not some sinister plot. More and more things will be automated as the years pass.

So you have no worries about the use of UAVs to ruin lives? So fricking what if the number of UAV grew during the last administration what is your fricking point?

so in order to HAVE technology it has to be UTILIZED to violate privacy?

hmmmmm. interdasting.

BTW, the implication that it is a "plot" isn't the point. Maybe you're smart enough to grasp that fact, maybe you're not....but the proliferation of such devices that can violate privacy of citizens quite easily (especially when you consider the warantless wiretapping, NDAA, etc) is something any rational human being would be concerned about.

Google "Rise of the Drones".

It was a recent PBS documentary on the past, present and future of drone usage by the US.

They have drones in the works that are fully autonomous. They also have cameras on drones that can video an entire small city (think Baton Rouge) at one time in ultra HD and zoom in on items as small as a shoe from some astronomical height. Everything that is happening that is visible from above is recorded by this camera.

We need defined laws that specify and limit this type of usage and behavior by our government relative to drone usage by the feds especially.

You're a lawyer so I'm sure you'll excuse me for being picky, but wasn't your hit on Europeans' use of drones to monitor criminal organizations more a critique of their Civil Liberties (in this case relating to privacy)? That's what I was trying to address. Maybe my example wasn't the most apt.

Drones will be just as common place as cop cars in the near future

Why are they different? The fact that you guys (and the media) use the term "drones" tells me that you don't really understand what they are.

UAVs are not "drones". They aren't AI. They have a pilot. He just operates the thing remotely from a room instead of from a cockpit. How is that different functionally different from a pilot operating a chopper overhead.

When we have a bunch of fully automated drones, I'll work on my outrage.

Just stay out of trouble, Bengal, and you don't have to worry about Obama coming after you. I'd hate to see you locked up and turned into a prison wife, dude. I don't think a wig and makeup would suit you.

They are already perfecting the tech...look at Rise of the Drones on PBS (as mentioned above). That is the future.

re: Drones being used in America


Would you prefer UAV? So the only advantage to UAVs is the guy is in a building in Nevada, versus a cockpit deployed? Why don't you just enlighten me on your indepth knowledge of UAVs?
