Tenth Amendment Center: Police Claim Surveillance Drones Will Revitalize Downtown

If you are having trouble digesting the headline, just imagine how much trouble I am having trying to write about it.

In what has to be the most ludicrous excuse ever made by police to spy on citizens, this one is at the top of my list.

Last month, the Riverhead Police Department in New York and town officials claimed that drones, more police foot patrols and surveillance cameras would help revitalize downtown.

The headline reads, “Drones, police foot patrols, more floated to uplift Riverhead’s downtown.”

“We’re concerned about revitalizing downtown, and part of the revitalization of downtown is also public safety,” Supervisor Laura Jens-Smith said in a Sept. 4 interview. “Questions have come up, whether it be the perception of safety…”

How do officials plan to change the public’s “perception of safety”?

Smith claims that police drones will “create more of a community connection in the area. More eyes and ears in the area, will hopefully lead to more people coming to shop and recreate in downtown more.”

To claim that surveillance drones will “create more of a community connection” is a new low by anyone’s standards. [ I am referring to you, DHS.]

Three questions about police surveillance drones that need to be asked.

1.) Will the police use Riverhead’s, electric-powered Luminti Aerospace drones to revitalize downtown?

2.) Will the police use Persistent Aerial Reconnaissance and Communications” drones that can fly over downtown for hours without being recharged?

3.) Will the police use Aptonomy drones to “revitalize downtown”?
According to an article in the Los Altos Town Crier, Aptonomy volunteers their drones to police departments as an incentive to use them exclusively.

What’s next? Will police claim that stop-and-frisk’s will revitalize downtowns?

Claiming police surveillance drones will revitalize downtown’s is a portend of things to come.

 if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.
