The Age Of Drones: Military May Be Using Drones In US To Help Police

 This is another chapter in the militarization of the police forces. My sense is that this is the scariest chapter because it is a direct attempt to circumvent the courts as is clearly pointed out in the link.

During my entire military career, there was a clear prohibition not to interfere or assist with civil law enforcement unless martial law or a state of emergency was declared by the president.

“….But Capt. Richeson goes on to say that “a court order or warrant is not required in all circumstances.”…”

This is a snapshot of what is waiting for us and our children in the not too distant future: “…Drone manufacturers are gearing up to pitch an estimated 18,000 police departments in the U.S. on the benefits of flying drones…”

The use of any aspect of the military to intervene or assist civil authorities rest directly by presidential decree. Not a power to be delegated.
