Grounded: Man vs. ah, Unmanned


This is a new way of voicing opposition.  The town of Deer Creek, Colo., is looking to begin offering “drone hunting licenses” and actually paying rewards to anyone who presents proof that they were able to bring down an unmanned aerial vehicle belonging to the United States federal government, according to reporting by Denver TV station KMGH.

This is in addition to recent protests (see video below)

At this point, all that can fairly be said is that the Deer Creek proposal might fare better under the law than British protesters who have now been charged for the opposition to unmanned aerial vehicles (“UAVs”) and drones.

Desperate measures make for bad law.  There needs to be better dialogue on what is becoming a very hot button issue / technology.
