A nation of sheep.
Almost Half Of All Americans Support Domestic Surveillance Drones
Sept 28, 2012
Close to half of Americans say they are in favour of police departments
deploying surveillance drones domestically.
According to a survey conducted by The Associated Press and The National
Constitution Center, 44 percent support the idea of police using
unmanned aerial vehicles to track suspects and carry out investigations.
Only 36 percent said that they “strongly oppose” or “somewhat oppose”
police use of drones, according to the survey.
The poll also found that only one third of Americans say they are
significantly concerned about their privacy being eroded by the adoption
of drones by police forces throughout the country.
Thrity-five percent of respondents said they were “extremely concerned”
or “very concerned” when asked if they believed that police departments’
use of drones for surveillance would impact their privacy.
Almost exactly the same number, 36 percent, noted that they were “not
too concerned” or “not concerned at all”, while twenty-four percent were
neutral on the issue, saying they were only “somewhat concerned” about a
potential loss of privacy.
FAA documents recently obtained and released by the Electronic Frontier
Foundation have confirmed that the roll out of domestic unmanned drones
will, for the most part, be focused solely on the mass surveillance of
the American people.
Furthermore, thousands of pages of FAA experimental drone flight records
that were obtained by the Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR)
detail just how complicated and risky it would be to operate thousands
of unmanned arial vehicles safely without spending billions of dollars.
Following intense lobbying, almost exclusively by defense contractors,
Congress recently passed legislation paving the way for what the FAA
predicts will be somewhere in the region of 30,000 drones in operation
in US skies by 2020.
