Charlottesville passes anti-drone resolution (but it’s tepid)

But the city will still allow drones, yet promises that the information from them will not be used in court.  A start, but hardly enough: there shouldn’t be drones over American cities at all.

Here’s where this is heading in America:

In a statement, John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute, said he hoped other local governments would follow suit.

“As with other weapons of war which have become routine weapons of compliance domestically, such as tasers and sound cannons, once drones are unleashed on the American people, there will be no limiting their use by government agencies,” Whitehead said in a statement.
