Senator Rand Paul Says 'No' to Domestic Drones - CNN Reports
Jun 14, 2012 — Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is supporting a bill to ban the use of domestic drones to monitor citizens in the U.S. He spoke with CNN's Carol Costello a day after a U.S. Navy drone crashed in Salisbury, Maryland.
With pride I share this story. Senator Rand Paul steps up and supports a bill to BAN the use of Drones to monitor citizens. The ACLU FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request details the types of use and crew training for the recertification of those who will be directing these 'UNMANNED' aircrafts in our skies. The testing and targeting requires a number of targeted hits on categories from 1 to 8 which includes 'ball fields', 'children nurseries', and 'residential areas'. Training goes as far as to estimate necessary 'COLLATERAL DAMAGE' the intentional hits and misses. Above is an example of which? There are (already) hundreds of drones operating in our skies by many 'unknown' corporations and military agencies with a proposed 30,000 additional just approved by 75 Senators.
