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.

Yeah, I don't really understand the uproar over this. If someone is sitting in a pilot seat it's ok, but if someone's flying it from the ground, it's a horrible violation? We've had choppers flying around spotting things for years now.

My suspicion is that large numbers of people don't understand the difference between military and police drones. They think that there'll be military drones flying around loaded for bear, just waiting to shoot missiles at someone doing 2mph over the speed limit.
