Hofstra Chronicle: Opinion: Big Brother is watching – The future of police surveillance by Delilah Gray:
Mid-October, a civilian-held panel voted on whether or not the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) could fly drones around, surveilling the streets. You know what the crazy part is? The vote ended up in favor of the usage of drones by 3-1. The LAPD now can send out drones to watch over neighborhoods in order “to cut down crime.” While we live in a society where social media reigns over personal space, we still possess the concept of privacy.
Since people like to wave the Second Amendment around like devil may care, why are they conveniently forgetting the Fourth Amendment? You know, the right of privacy?
