The point of view I'd really like to see is the one OF the copter and its video feed of it heading for terra firma...maybe spice it up with a "mr. Bill" claymation pilot deploying his chute and screaming OH NOOOOO after jumping and finding it was his back pack with his underwear and toiletries flying out,,,that would be too cool
The claim is $4000.00 in damage to the spy copter. With Bob Barker's one million he donated to the nut ball's to stop flyer shoots they will just buy another. I guess the price is right. My question is are they stalkers? May you defend yourself from their peeping tom actions. Every report portrays the shooters as the vilians. They were not the ones flying the spy copter.
It would appear that the action would indeed constitute trespass of airspace over the private lands of another due to the closeness of flight and the act of interference on the activities of the land owners.
Your little copter suffered mechanical difficulties spiralled out control and has struck a blind, black, war disabled veteran and has caused immense suffering and permanent damage. You may pick up your equipment after showing undisputable proof of ownership.
Way OT, but I worked at the Bureau of Engraving in Ft Worth, a while back and there was a R/C airstrip that just to the south of it, the airstrip was there before the plant, one evening there were a bunch of fellas out there flying their airplanes and one strayed over the fence. They had a radio frequency jammer or what ever they call them inside the fence and his plane wouldn't respond to his radio, and it ended up flying into the side of the thermal oxidizer, and punched a hole in the stainless steel coating that held the insulation on the oxidizer
He went to the front gate to reclaim his plane, they got all of his info and told him they would get back with him
The last I heard before I quit is the feds were trying to get $49,000 out of him to reskin the oxidizer
Presentence have already been set, and air space is considered private and described about twenty different ways in them. It is very hard for law enforcement to get a warrant for the purpose surveillance using any sort of UMV and if it is considered private space for warrants it just about covers everything else.
The courts are not lenient for warrants in sky space because of the law enforcements so called "abuse" of the "spy Planes" Another words the ACLU gives the advantage again to the bad guys.
semperfi909 : That is a can of worms if their ever was one. Right to privacy at what expense? That is the question that I am not going to go back in forth on as I believe law enforcment should be allowed to do thier job. From a one sided view you could say they support everything that is bad going on these days from protests at a soldiers funeral to burning the flag, porn, the word God. And yep I have a one sided view, mind like a steel trap when it comes to the ACLU.
I have to admit they do serve a purpose, but they tilt to far to the left and no wonder as they are all graduates from the same thinks tanks, our universities. Information about ACLU and private property, anything I am missing, your thoughts?
