Funny that DHS is getting criticism for NOT using drones, when my take is that drones further compromise our civil freedoms, but apparently their use helps some key corporations' bottom lines – and their use can be more palatable by using them for Disaster Response.

According to Homeland Security Department Secretary Janet Napolitano, they are considering drone use to gather situational awareness for forest fires or “large public safety” matters.

Anyways, here’s one story:

another citing the value of drones:

www.stripes.com/news/spies-in-the-north-dakota-sky-signal-a-new-age-of-surveillance-1.184116 which cites some 30,000 drones in domestic use in the next 8 years.
