The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure.

MAINE DRONE SURVEILLANCE BILL HEARING ON THURSDAY IN AUGUSTA

 
I've just learned that the Maine state legislative drone bill (LD 236) is being discussed again tomorrow (Thursday) by the Judiciary Committee in Augusta at 1:00 pm on the 4th floor of the capital building.
 
It would be very important to come to this work session if you can or at least to contact members of the Joint Standing Committee on Judiciary to let them know you demand that the police must have warrants before doing drone surveillance of citizens in Maine.
 
It appears that Maine's Attorney General Janet Mills (a Democrat) is pushing hard to gut the warrant requirement in the bill and that the Democrats on the committee are weakening under her pressure. AG Mills wants the police in Maine to make their own rules about how they do drone surveillance.

Throughout our history though we have seen that government has over and over again used every available means to monitor innocent people and to suppress legitimate dissent - drone surveillance will be no different.
