According to The Daily Mail in the United Kingdom, the United States government is considering using tiny drones, some no more than the size of golf balls, to keep an eye on its citizens from the sky.
The Daily Mail reports that a 30-page memorandum issued by President Barack Obama’s Secretary to the Air Force in April claimed these tiny drones may be used “to collect information about U.S. persons.”
The government’s use of drone strikes to kill suspected terrorists overseas has already drawn criticism from many quarters. it is unlikely a plan to use drones on its own citizens, even if just for surveillance purposes, will be met with much more support.
How do you feel about the U.S. government’s possible use of drones to monitor its own citizens?
