Connecticut considering weaponizing drones

Connecticut lawmakers are considering whether the state should become the first in the country to allow police to use drones outfitted with deadly weapons, a proposal immediately met with concern by civil rights and liberties advocates.

The bill would ban the use of weaponized drones, but exempt police. Details on how law enforcement could use drones with weapons would be spelled out in new rules to be developed by the state Police Officer Standards and Training Council. Officers also would have to receive training before being allowed to use drones with weapons.

“Obviously this is for very limited circumstances,” said Republican state Sen. John Kissel, of Enfield, co-chairman of the Judiciary Committee that approved the measure Wednesday and sent it to the House of Representatives. “We can certainly envision some incident on some campus or someplace where someone is a rogue shooter or someone was kidnapped and you try to blow out a tire.”

North Dakota is the only state that allows police to use weaponized drones, but limits the use to “less lethal” weapons, including stun guns, rubber bullets and tear gas.

  3. Ahhh, my old home state….What will they think of next?
    “Trust us”, right? Gee, i thought “1984” was in the rear view mirror….

    There is a dangerous “tipping point” ahead….Yes, some say we’ve passed it, but I think not…
    My “tipping point” is when too much misplaced “Trust” collides with undeniable “Truth”…Then, the “tipping point” begins and the unrecoverable chaos begins…..

    No civilization, except a few, peaceful and remote examples, ever gets by this event: Total, chaotic civilization collapse….Is it in our DNA?

    History proves this….Only those who forget history are doomed to relive it….

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.

The control of information is something the elite always does, particularly in a despotic form of government. Information, knowledge, is power. If you can control information, you can control people.

You learn that you either are going to have a police state where you don't have any freedom left, or you're going to build a world that doesn't create terrorists, and that means a whole different way of getting along.
