|Drones can be as large as this image, or as small as a hummingbird|
There are many different types of drones, but there are two categories that drones commonly fall under. Like fruit or vegetables, drones are "pilot-controlled
or "pre-program-missioned." Drone usage has increased rapidly in these past years do to our re-involvement and interest in the wars, Iraq and Afghanistan. Our weapon of choice has been decided, but there seems to be a problem. Some of our targeted prospects are our own people....
There are two sides to this issue, and Stephen Ingley, executive director of the Airborne Law Enforcement Association, believes drones have a purpose that is worth fighting for. Ingley says drones "clearly have so much potential for saving lives, and it's a darn shame we're having to go through this right now," he said.
In contrast, the idea of a drone lurking over America's head in everyday life isn't something that sounds appealing, no matter how safe this makes us. And with the government's military budgets getting slimmer and slimmer, civilians are the ones who need to support the issue. If we don't snatch this technology and call it ours, there's possibility of it moving elsewhere-- scary thought.
