    I got news for you Max:
    #1 The city of Arlington had two of these r/c microdrones in the air all over Super Bowl weekend.
    #2 Arlington, TX is the only city in the U.S. licensed or authorized to carry out such operations.
    And to think most Texans consider Austin the bastian of liberal wierdness.
    Don't forget it was Arlington school system that tried to mandate Arabic as a required language course for high school kids. [:(]

    In 2007, it was revealed by reporters in Texas that unmanned drones were being used in supposed border control operations. We detailed that report with supporting evidence that drones clearly were being used inland away from border control functions.

    Recently, an article from Miami-Dade announced the arrival of a 16-pound micro drone T-Hawk surveillance model designed by Honeywell. The video below shows a more detailed view of the capabilities of this surveillance drone. Keep in mind, this is only what is being announced at the moment, which has nothing to do with the massive amounts of R&D that has being going on to reduce the size of flying surveillance. There have even been reports about "wasp" drones to sniff out Wi-FI networks as well.

    Pending FDA approval these specific unmanned aerial vehicles are set to be used domestically throughout the United States. Besides the obvious uses for these drones such as during a legitimate raid, these drones may be used in order to further the police state and restrict free speech in America.
