    I wonder how it would skew if the 'survey' or poll asked ppl to differentiate between surveillance drones vs armed ones in use by local sheriffs and such. Would they draw their line there at least?

    Seattle ix-nayed theirs yesterday and they werent even armed UAV's I dont think. Texas however is another story, of course.

    The accident got them ridiculed on the Internet. But they never wavered in their commitment to drones. And now, apparently still tickled to death, Chief Deputy McDaniel has been quoted telling the press that tear gas and rubber bullets might be added to the unmanned aerial vehicle. CBS News quotes him explaining that "those are things that law enforcement utilizes day in and day out and in certain situations it might be advantageous to have this type of system." That's rather vague, but there's no getting around one thing: the situations would all involve police deliberately shooting rubber bullets or tear gas clouds at civilians from an unmanned drone.

    Do we want to live in a society where police do that?
