Could they use drones for finding pot? What you think about this? At least you would not be freaked out like when you see choppers. You will never see the drone. Court Upholds Arrest of First US Citizen Based on Drone Surveillance -- News from Antiwar.com A judge at a district court in North Dakota has issued the first ruling on domestic drone use, saying that the arrest of a man during which surveillance drones were used was not â€œimproperâ€ and that it has â€œno bearingâ€ on charges brought against the man. The arrest was the result of a dispute over laws in North Dakota surrounding wandering livestock, and police attacked the man, Rodney Brossart, on his property after he refused to return six cows which had wandered onto his property. Brossart's lawyer sought the charges of â€œcriminal mischiefâ€ thrown out because of the warrantless use of drones, as well as a number of other â€œconstitutional violationsâ€ including tasering him. The relatively minor charges against Brossart may well serve as the first legal precedent for police use of surveillance drones against civilians on American soil. The prosecution had argued that the â€œmischiefâ€ was committed before the drones were deployed, and that therefore they weren't relevant to the charges.
