Police Using Drones To Hunt For Accused Cop-Killer
#1
Quote:Police plan to use spy drones in the hunt for a Rambo-style ex-soldier and policeman who has murdered three people and vowed to kill again.

They believe burly, heavily-armed Christopher Dorner is holed-up in the wilderness of California’s snow-capped San Bernardino mountains 80 miles east of Los Angeles.

The burnt-out shell of his pick-up truck was discovered in the nearby resort of Big Bear, where residents and tourists have been warned to stay indoors as the search continues.

Yesterday, as a task force of 125 officers, some riding Snowcats in the rugged terrain, continued their search, it was revealed that Dorner has become the first human target for remotely-controlled airborne drones on US soil.

A senior police source said: “The thermal imaging cameras the drones use may be our only hope of finding him. On the ground, it’s like looking for a needle in a haystack.”

Asked directly if drones have already been deployed, Riverside Police Chief Sergio Diaz, who is jointly leading the task force, said: “We are using all the tools at our disposal.”

The use of drones was later confirmed by Customs and Border Patrol spokesman Ralph DeSio, who revealed agents have been prepared for Dorner to make a dash for the Mexican border since his rampage began.

He said: “This agency has been at the forefront of domestic use of drones by law enforcement. That’s all I can say at the moment.”

Let's just hope the drones aren't used to "end the threat" of the first "burly" person they find...

Not too fond of the door to door searches they have been doing either.
The law? The law is a human institution...

I know the drones are only being used to locate this guy, but who knows, he might end up as the first US citizens to be killed on US soil via drone attack.

The 'drones in the air' couldn't possibly do more damage than the drones on the ground. Confused

LOL.. He ain't there. I'll bet dollars to their whole farm of donuts.. He's not an idiot. He wouldn't leave a burned out truck there and stay. He is probably sitting somewhere a long ways away.

Seems like the black helicopter crowd has totally gotten it wrong.

It's grey drones, not black helicopters.
