Oh great, as if we didn't have enough law enforcement harassment in
our area already.   Next thing you know they'll be giving free cell
phones to manatees with 911 on speed dial.  I wonder what the penalty
is for shooting a drone?

They would probably confiscate your boat.

Report back when you shoot one down.

This is probably something you would want to keep quiet about.

Even a fish would not get caught if he kept his mouth shut.

I think an RF attack would be preferable to a ballistic one. Jam the
RF uplink and just let it fly away uncontrolled or crash.

--------------------------------------------

The concept of using aerial surveillance in law enforcement is nothing
new.  Remember the signs on the highways that read,
"Speed Monitored by Aircraft" ?    They would just watch to see how
long it took you to travel between two marked points on the highway
and then nail you.   Still used regularly to find pot growers.   I
think the use of drones  is a lot cheaper and we may see more of them.

Yeah, there should be no laws, right?

You're already a mental criminal. You're fraudulently impersonating
someone with a brain.

Somebody needs to come up with an air cannon that can knock a drone out of the sky.

Unless it is one of the PETA drones.
