The people of Los Angeles can sleep ever more snugly in their beds, knowing that the LAPD is now equipped with flying robotic camera drones to monitor the city.
The money quote:
Commander Heal is quick to point out that it is not their intention to launch ‘big brother’ style surveillance operations.
“There’s no place in an urban environment that you can go to right now that you’re not being looked at with a video camera and you have nothing to fear from your own government - you are being watched by your fellow citizens,” he says.
See, the spy-planes aren’t the first step of making the country a police state! We’ve been a police state for years! Now quit yer bitchin and take your soma.
If Los Angeleans want to keep their privacy, maybe they’ve got to work on increasing the smog.
