Drones like that simply make it cheaper to do aerial recon. Not really that different that a helo, except that they're orders of magnitude cheaper so it will be more cost effective for departments to deploy them. Does this make them easier to abuse? Sure, but it also makes police more effective.

I have a friend who is a state trooper, and he often has to serve warrants and grab bail jumpers. His job would be more effective if there was a drone overhead with a guy on the radio telling him, "the guy's jumped out the back window, and is headed north in the alley," so he could serve that warrant or grab that bail jumper.

I do have a problem with Obama and his use of drones overseas, but this is not that scenario. I also have a problem with his continuation of warrantless wiretapping. This is also not that scenario.
