Drone Planes Deployed to Spy on Citizens
June 8, 2012 2 Comments
Infowars- The United States Air Force, through the use of unmanned aerial drones, is set to be deployed inside the United States to collect data, investigate places of interest, and share data with local police agencies.
An unclassified Air Force Memo from late April documents the fact that the military is operating drone aircraft domestically and that, through a complete end run around the Constitution, can essentially share it with local law enforcement even if it has no relation to terrorism.
The worst part of this whole scenario is how broad the guidelines are for drone surveillance. Some of the many exceptions outline in the Air Force documents include:
- “Investigating or preventing clandestine intelligence activities by foreign powers, international narcotics activities, or international terrorist activities
- Protecting DoD employees, information, property and facilities
- Preventing, detecting, or investigating other violations of law”
“Other violations of law” could include anything from jaywalking to running a red light. While an unlikely scenario to get ticketed for jaywalking, the use of military drones in United States airspace is now justified for any reason the Air Force sees best fit.
Inside the country, we have over 30,000 drones set to be launched by various law enforcement agencies, the military, and private companies. The FAA predicts that all of these drones will be in United States skies by 2020. This is simply another step to further eliminate the traditional privacy that all Americans have enjoyed and expected. The Constitution seems to be withering away slowly and slowly each day, and with the use of required human tracking microchips by 2013, privacy may soon no longer exist.
