5 Homeland Security ‘Bots Coming to Spy on You (If They Aren’t Already)
SNIP

It's been 10 years since the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) started up operations. During that decade, DHS has moved to the forefront of funding and deploying the robots and drones that could be coming soon to a neighborhood near you.

DHS funds research and development for surveillance robots. It provides grant money by the hundreds of thousands to police agencies to buy their own. And sometimes it's bought and deployed robots -- for their skies, the ground and the waters -- of its own, usually concentrated along the border. It's not clear how many of those robots police operate, and law enforcement isn't by any means the only domestic market for the 'bots. But the trend lines point toward more robotic spy tools for law enforcement in more places -- with more DHS cash.

But it's not going to be simple. The Federal Aviation Administration is cautious about opening the skies to unmanned vehicles -- so much so that Congress and the Obama administration ordered it to ease up on restrictions by 2015. But not all spy robots fly. DHS is also developing robots that resemble fish, and deploys tunnel-bots deep into drug-smuggling tunnels along the border.

Exactly... hoped it would never come to this - very depressed that it's even worse.

Re: 5 Homeland Security ‘Bots Coming to Spy on You (If They Aren’t Already)
Recently there was a situation (way overdone by the way) in my mom's neighborhood. A man was holed up in a condo, after a man served him with eviction papers. He is a very heavy drinker and they claimed he had a gun. (They claim he did and he later stated that he would've only harmed himself.) He was taken out on a stretcher later after they shot a flash grenade into the window.

They had the sheriff's deputies, tv stations and SWAT team there. Newspaper stated that they sent in a tiny robot to get a look around but that the condo was too messy to see much. (so keep your house mess, heh)

I was wondering HOW they got such a thing into the condo since the guy had himself all locked up in there and wouldn't open the door. Anyone know?

They throw them through a window... No seriously... they do...

Sad thing is, you can buy a comparable "TOY" from WalMart for about $60.

+ a camera would set you back about $200...

DHS is a little slow on their move of using the drones but will be using them very soon in mass. Local police departments across hundreds of cities in the US already have their own surveillance drones complete with pilots, some also already have the armed drones like the small chopper drone that carries a grenade launcher/machine-gun combo or the smaller 4 wheel that that only carries a rifle(usually light mg) into homes and confined spaces. Scary to think of, but now all these people in so much favor of these drones for use on civilians abroad are going to see what it's like living with these things as a part of their everyday life too.

Very true in most cases but with some of the sheep here in the US, who knows. Too many were blind enough to not see these things would eventually be in our homeland with the constant stating by politicians that America was now a battlefield and they let it happen. They may not notice much difference when hell-fires start raining from our skies to end "dangerous" police chases, after-all the use of grenades and military force by police SWAT and Feds is already ignored by mainstream public and media alike or it's being justified and they've already got tanks using those as far back as the Waco and Ruby Ridge massacres with no real public outcry.

My father builds planes he says that the drones are nothing he says they are working on a plane smaller than the cesna that from 15000 ft up its cameras can see what the label is on your cigarette in your home or car the only problem with the planes is that you can here them he said the drones are silent and they can go up alot higher undetected and stay up for upto 3 days the planes need more fuel and a pilot but he says that people that are claiming spy issues on drones dont realize that there are government planes that have been out alot longer that can do the same thing he actually saw the camera recording from the plane they designed and said it was unreal the images and how detailed they are
that is how they were able to use the drone in the bunker situation they were able to see in to the bunker to tell if the door was rigged i feel creeped out they could be watching me take a shit or my sex life anything they want really sux
