#3 I am in complete agreement with Charles Krauthammer, whom in my opinion is a national treasure. Gov't 'Persistent Surveillance' at the local, state, or federal, has NO PLACE in a US domestic environment.

Privacy issues aside, lets talk about SAFETY. The first time a UAV crashes into a school yard.... and they do crash, or collides with a Cessna or God forbid, a commercial airliner it will be much too late for a re-do.

Controlled airspace border monitoring....OK, can do easy. Issue the ATO (Air Tasking Order) and go for it. Wasn't that the.... original intent, or stated intent..... or was it?

#4 This is the original source news, a Fox video interview with Charles Krauthammer.

I'm not encouraging, but I an predicting that the first guy who uses a Second Amendment weapon to bring a drone down that's been hovering over his house is going to be a folk hero in this country," Krauthammer said tonight.

#5  As far as Zerohedge (or Drudge, for that matter) goes, it is easy to drill backwards to a source news item.
My other link posted on the 'Burg today came up in a Facebook post from a relative of mine living in South Korea, who mentioned the NKor jamming of GPS in SKor. It was an easy step to find the SKor news item in English.

#6 The only domestic drones I would support wouldbe ones put I. The air toact as a police copter in the event of a pursuit. Better to track someone from the safety of the air then race through traffic after them.

#7 Gotta luv the Chucky.

"No place in a US domestic environment" > espec when mainstream Americans = US Voters are not being asked to vote on it at any level - Fed, State, or Local. Amers won't be asked to vote on it until many Years or Decades in time have passed, + we are already used to it.

* FYI a Person has repor dev a TASER wid a 20,000-volt capacity. CAN A GOVT. THAT DOES THE ABOVE ONE DAY CONSIDER covert EMPLACING of SUCH A POTENT TASER, PAR OR STRONGER, IN US STREETS FOR "IMMEDIATE" COUNTER-RESPONSE VEE CROWD CONTROL - I THINK SO.

Instant Zap.

ALL THEY NEED IS POWER POSTS + INTERCONNECTING GRIDS.

Once STAR-TREK styled "disintegrators" are emaplced, the Police won't even be needed because the Govt will no longer need to just have you arrested - Public Instigants can be made to quickly "disappear" at the push of button. NO NEED FOR POLICE, ATTORNEYS, CIVIL COURTS, PRISONS, OR PERSONAL LIBERTIES ANYMORE AS WE KNOW IT - CAUGHT, TRIED, JUDGED, + ZAPPED WIDIN A FEW MINUTES OR LESS.

Not even the Commies will send your families the Bullets andor Billing used to execute you anymore.

Just as the US = Fed-DOD will not put in "defensive" MilSys unless it also puts in "offensive" MilSys to defeat a successful or effective Enemy counter-response(s) to same, e.g. Missle-based GMD-TMD versus Laser-based Space/Orbital Strike, DITTO FOR NON-MIL CIVIE + POLITICAL AUTHORITIES.
