Paul Applewhite a director on the Unmanned Vehicle Systems International explains how the policy for drones has been indiscriminate killing of people. This is actively taking place in Pakistan, Yemen, Afghanistan, and elsewhere in the world. Now the technology for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (aka Drones) is being bantered about in the Soon-to-be former Republic of America. While there are always legitimate uses of any technology, they can be a double-edged sword. Such as it is with drones that they will be used with little control, unless “We The People” demand controls and limitations be placed on them. This video clip is the testimony of Paul Applewhite during the Washington State Public Safety public hearing on HB1771, which limits usage of drones in Washington State. The committee voted 9-1 in favor of passing the legislation on to the House Rules Committee.
Applewhite quite horrifically compares how the technology of drones in the trunk of a police car is equivalent to the deadly force of a pistol at a Police Officers hip. This equates the legitimacy of using drones for deadly force, much as a firearm is used as deadly force by a cop.
