    Headline: Drone Farmer Arrest

    I think the odds are good that one of these days the Drone Investigators are going to see some confirmation and vindication in print when the whole back-story of drone development becomes known. I imagine it will be a few paragraphs down in an article like this one. What do you think?




    Drone Farmer Arrest? N. Dakota Farmer Arrested, Drone Evidence Used


    "This undated photo provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection shows an unmanned drone used to patrol the U.S.-Canadian border. Local, state and federal agencies ranging from local sheriff's offices to the North Dakota Army National Guard have borrowed unmanned surveillance drones from the Homeland Security Department nearly 700 times in the past three years, according to government records obtained by the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

    A farmer accused of stealing cattle was arrested and sentenced to several years in prison after officials used evidence that was gathered from a Predator drone, according to reports.
    North Dakota farmer Rodney Brossart was sentenced to three years in prison for his role in an armed standoff with police after he allegedly stole cattle from his neighbor in 2011. His family refused to hand him over at gunpoint after officials asked for him amid the allegations he stole cattle; they were armed with a search warrant.
    He was released on bail and didnít appear in court. Nelson County Sheriff Kelly Janke said he got permission from the U.S. Border Patrol to use a Predator drone to carry out video surveillance on the farm, Fox News reported.

    Next thing you know, we will have drones patrolling our streets catching those pesky jaywalkers.
    Our tax dollars in action.

    I fully expected to read something more like that when I clicked on that link--or that a farmer had been arrested for shooting one down.

    I am not a fan of Fox News and or any major news outlet. This does put it into perspective.

    How much does it cost to fly these things around?

    Looks like I'm in the wrong business, not that spying is my cup of tea.
    This isn't poetry, this is the language of reality.

    I've seen ads for tech schools looking for students to fly drones, "growing businesses in need of employees".
