A decade ago, they were used to monitor the movements of suspected terrorists.
Now, drones are being used for the surveillance of the President and his aides.
The surveillance is both unnecessary and dangerous, according to the ACLU.
The drone revolution has not just been a boon for the police, the intelligence community, and the intelligence-gathering industries.
It has also led to a revolution in privacy and the way people interact with government.
At a time when privacy is a hot button issue, it’s a good time to think about how we can make it a better place.
The drones that are being flown around us aren’t just used to collect intelligence on potential threats to our security.
They’re being used to spy on people in private lives.
And it’s not just people whose lives might be in danger that they should be concerned about.
Privacy advocates are concerned about the privacy of the individuals themselves.
In a recent piece for Salon, author and privacy advocate Rebecca Traister details the disturbing stories of how some of the drone pilots that fly over our homes and offices have gone out of their way to make their lives more miserable and frightening for their passengers.
According to Traister, a pilot who flew a drone over her home in January this year decided to turn on the cameras to document the moment she dropped her daughter off at school.
After the girl’s classmates saw the camera, one of the boys jumped out of his chair and began screaming at her for bringing it up.
“I’m going to kick your ass, you motherfucker,” the boy told Traister.
“I’m gonna kick your motherfucking butt.”
Traister says that she was shocked when she heard the words “fucking asshole.”
The boy, she says, then told the pilot, “I want you to get off the plane.
I want to see your fucking ass.”
“My daughter had been dropped off at the school, and it was her first day of school.
My husband was waiting for her at the gate.
Traisters daughter was the only one in the class, so her classmates knew to watch out for her.
The father of the girl, however, was the last one to see the camera.
He was very upset,” Traister writes. “
The father walked out the door and called the police.
He was very upset,” Traister writes.
But instead of the father being arrested, the police said that they were just protecting the pilot from his own daughter.
For a brief moment, Traister’s daughter was safe, but the pilot soon returned and began filming the whole thing.
Now that Traister is a mother herself, Traisters daughter is terrified.
A year after the pilot took the drone footage, she decided to file a police report against the pilot.
He has not yet been charged.
Traister tells The Daily Beast, “It was a big surprise to me that I had to file that police report.
I didn’t think it was going to happen.”
What does Traister expect the outcome to be?
In the short term, she hopes that the pilot will get his ass kicked.
But Traister says the pilot could have avoided any trouble by not recording the video in the first place.
“I think it’s pretty clear that he was doing it to get attention for his company, so the fact that he’s getting all of this attention is a pretty good indication that the video is of a legitimate purpose,” Traisters told The Daily Bump.
Should we be concerned?
Well, in some cases, it may be easier to make an exception for the pilot’s own daughter, but not always.
On October 6, 2017, an unnamed woman was killed in a drone strike in Yemen.
This is not the first time that drones have been used for surveillance.
In 2014, a drone pilot killed an American man and wounded several others in Yemen in retaliation for the killing of a US soldier.
The man who was killed was identified by local media as Anwar al-Awlaki, a leader of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
As of October 2018, the US military has more than 100 drone attacks under its command in Yemen, according the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
Despite the drones being used on many civilians, the military insists that it’s only killing people who are actually planning a terrorist attack.
“We are not looking for individuals who are planning an imminent threat, which means not people who intend to harm the United States, the people of Yemen, or any of the innocent people living in Yemen,” said Maj. Steve Warren,
