Surveillance Drones Coming to Orlando: Big Brother Will Be Enjoying Your VisitSubmitted by Libera_me on Sun, 01/13/2013 - 08:43
Headed to the Magic Kingdom? The Drones will be too, if the Orlando Sheriff's Office has its way. They are 'experimenting with two surveillance drones they hope to release over the Orlando Metro skies this summer. Both Democrats and Republicans are concerned with the move, however: Doug Head, Democratic activist, said of the plan: "This is unwise and unnecessary. Sheriffs are supposed to be sheriffs, not the US Army."
Republicans are not silent on this matter, either. State Senator Joe Negron (R- Stuart) has introduced a bill to limit their use. I don't agree with this strategy, it is letting the camel in the door, and sets up the possibility to add more uses later, but I do see the logic of limitations. The Democrats do see the big picture on this one, and are seeing it better than the Republicans.
