NORTH DAKOTA BECOMES FIRST STATE TO LEGALIZE DRONES WEAPONIZED WITH TASERS, TEAR GAS, RUBBER BULLETS & SOUND CANONS

t is now legal for law enforcement in North Dakota to fly drones armed with everything from Tasers to tear gas thanks to a last-minute push by a pro-police lobbyist.

With all the concern over the militarization of police in the past year, no one noticed that the state became the first in the union to allow police to equip drones with “less than lethal” weapons. House Bill 1328 wasn’t drafted that way, but then a lobbyist representing law enforcement—tight with a booming drone industry—got his hands on it.

You could see the writing on the walls years ago. In an increasingly authoritarian, lawless, surveillance state like America, it was always inevitable that drones would be weaponized. In North Dakota, this is now a reality.

Although I haven’t written much about domestic drones as of late, I published many articles on the topic several years ago. In the 2012 piece, Drones in America? They are Already Here…I warned:

Like with any new technology, drones can be put to good use or to evil use. Just like nuclear power can harness energy or destroy humanity altogether, drones could do a lot of good, but the problem is that the government is clearly moving more and more towards a surveillance state so we must be extra careful. Stay vigilant.

Apparently, North Dakotans weren’t particularly vigilant, and now the state has become the first in the nation to legalize weaponized drones; not a distinction they should be proud of. What started out as a bill to require police using drones for surveillance obtain warrants, turned into a law that puts tasers and tear gas on them. Go ‘Merica.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have frequently speculated that if President Obama sees utterly no legal hurdle to extrajudicial assassinations of "people who need killin' " overseas, how far a leap would it be to order extrajudicial assassinations here at home?!?

Unfortunately, it is not that great a leap, seeing how Obama loves to have his way via Executive Order, and accomplish his agenda without any Congressional oversight whatsoever.

And to all North Dakotans, I have one four-letter response to this travesty; move.

Move to another state which has not yet been collectively made mad by the evil genius of this technology, and the promise of suppression, cruelty and death it holds.
