The rollout of domestic spy drones to watch the American people is accelerating, with footage taken during a recent Memorial Day event in Miami illustrating how authorities are using surveillance drones to keep tabs on partygoers.
People attending last month’s Miami Beach’s Memorial Day weekend celebrations, dubbed Urban Beach Week,expected a police crackdown that never came. But the revelers did get a taste of the new America in the form of a small police surveillance drone that hovered over bars and sidewalks recording the partygoers.
“That’s the police, that’s the police,” the man filming the video is heard to say as the drone hovers close to a bar between palm trees.
The reader who sent us the clip commented, “I live in Miami, Florida and on memorial day weekend Miami Beach turns into a POWER CRAZED police state. Besides the unlawful arrest quota of 2,000 for urban music weekend, military style roadblocks, and violating our rights, DRONES are now being deployed LIVE on and caught on video spying on the American people.”
