  • Surveylence Drones Or Helicopters?

    There has been a lot of talk lately about how "surveylence drones" could "invade our peresonal privacy." For some reason, the idea of a Predator-like flying camera platform is going to spy on us, 24-7. And for some reason, the Luddites who fear these things think it is a new and terrible government invention that will go peeking in windows and the like.

    Yet in all this discussion, I have not seen anyone say comment on manned surveylence; there hasn't been a word about security cameras, police helicopters equipped with exactly the same kind of camera pods, or police officers sitting in unmarked cars hidden behind billboards and bushes or anything else. Nor has anybody commented on the increasing use of camera-equipped helicopters by television news departments.

    All those things and people keep tabs on us, sometimes day and night, but nobody complains. Why are "drones" so different, beyond their ability to circle the same area for longer periods of time? All of them are ultimately operated by human pilots who take their instructions from human supervisors. The only difference is, the drones can do it for longer periods of time.

    So which is worse: Drones, helicopters or surveylence cameras?

    Be specific with your answers.

    This may be one of the most egregious spelling errors I've ever seen on the Net. Maybe I don't spend enough time surfing the web.

     Did you know that if you type a word into Google, it will offer you the correct spelling of words?

      At least they let you know when those surveylence drones are in the area.

      Speaking of blockheads and dumbasses, are you two going to address the issue raised in the Original Post, or are you two geniuses going to spend all your time quibbling over one damn word -- or more to the point, a couple of LETTERS? Speaking of mistakes, since when have you two been so absolutely perfect in everything you've ever posted? As Jesus said, "Let He Who Is Without Sin Among You Cast The First Stone." So shut up and put down the rocks, you guys...

    One thought would be that drones could probably be made for much less money, take up much less space to store, would probably be easier to maintain and less expensive overall to work with, so there could potentially be many, many more of them around to directly spy on people. And if that many more were around, there could end up being more reasons for them to spy on people. It at least brings a possibility of people being spied on for political dissent.

    Additionally, with the government being more open about targeting those with no proof against them and the possibility more laws could be changed that would allow drones to be weaponized (maybe brought about if a fair number of police were killed in some violent attack -- or multiple attacks such as the types bringing about the current gun debates), there are some roads this thing could go down that many might not later approve of.

    Hard to take it seriously when you can't even spell a word right, nevermind not even bothering to use an at hand resource to check yourself. You want others to respond when you can't be bothered to even make yourself appear credible?
