Connecticut Set To Become First State To Allow Deadly Police Drones

Connecticut could become the first US state to allow police to use drones equipped with deadly weapons if a bill opposed by civil libertarians becomes law. The bill, which was approved overwhelmingly by the state legislature’s judiciary committee on Wednesday, would ban so-called weaponized drones in the state but exempts police and other agencies involved in law enforcement, the AP reported. The legislation was introduced as a complete ban on weaponized drones but just before the committee vote it was amended to exclude police from the restriction.

    drones are intrusive and noisy it must be made legal to blast them out of the sky by any means.

    All laws that allow police to have weapons that the citizenry can’t have should fall afoul of the 14th amendment to equal protection.

    In my early years we were taught to trust cops, and I must say that at the time you could. However that was long ago, so this is the last thing they should be allowed. It is far too easy to be used against those who disagree with some progressive agenda instead of being limited to real criminals.
