Domestic use of aerial drones by law enforcement likely to prompt privacy debate
Quote:
But by 2013, the FAA expects to have formulated new rules that would allow police across the country to routinely fly lightweight, unarmed drones up to 400 feet above the ground - high enough for them to be largely invisible eyes in the sky.
I'll guess that eventually there will be tracking devices along with cameras on the drones.
Quote:
The police are likely to use drones in tactical operations and to view clearly public spaces. Legal experts say they will have to obtain a warrant to spy on private homes.
I wouldn't bet on it.

I observed a suspiciously parked vehicle around 11:00 a.m. across the street from where I live this this morning. I notified both the Governor's office and the Holmes County Sheriff's Department about it, and asked them to run a license plate check and included a description of both the occupants and vehicle.

Orwell 2011: Towards a Pervasive "Surveillance State" in America
Quote:
The latest front in the ongoing war against civil liberties and privacy rights is the Pentagon's interest in "persona management software."

A euphemism for a suite of high-tech tools that equip an operative--military or corporate, take your pick--with multiple avatars or sock puppets, our latter day shadow warriors hope to achieve a leg up on their opponents in the "war of ideas" through stealthy propaganda campaigns rebranded as "information operations."

I think we need a state-by-state constitution amendment drive to affirm it a protected civil right to record anything you can see or hear in a public space or on your own property where there is no expectation of privacy. When you apply some of these "video taping prosecution" theories to other situations, you run into some serious logical inconsistancies.

For example, if you have a security camera continuously recording on your property and it captures a police officer making an arrest, does that make you a criminal? According to some prosecutor's legal theories, it does! Does erasing the recording "cure" that? (Even though that would technically constitute destruction of evidence!) Since you did not willfully make that recording, would it be legal to keep it? Or would mere possession of such a recording be illegal?

All preposterous ideas, because they are based on the preposterous idea that it is illegal to make such a recording to begin with.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way. An acquaintance tried it. The 14th Judicial District Assistant State Attorney that refused to answer my question whether or not he reviewed the evidence that I had sent to the SAO per the Governor's recommendation regarding my charges of illegal electronic surveillance by law enforcement was the one that criminally prosecuted him for tape-recording a cop. My acquaintance was acquitted.
