Police Drones Skirt Legal Gray Areas

Drone use is increasing dramatically with law enforcement agencies across our fruited plains, sparking concerns from citizens about an all-too-powerful, all-too-seeing police force.

According to Yahoo! News, with a lot of gray area in the laws governing the use of remote-controlled aircrafts equipped with cameras, American Civil Liberties Union policy analyst Jay Stanley likens their use by law enforcement as "a bit of a Wild West."

While the Federal Aviation Administration is working on drone flight regulations, they do not have a say in privacy issues. Electronic Frontier Foundation, a digital rights group, reports at least 60 police forces in the U.S. already equipped with drones.

Are you in favor of laws restricting law enforcement use of drones?
