• Oh I don't like the sound of that. A little too Orwellian...automated cops...machines making decisions about who should get shot. (Oh I realize these will be piloted by actual cops, yes. But things progress. Soon we may have driverless cars I'm told. And so perhaps these drones would be harmless now, but automated later. ..All in all, when it comes to things like this, I'd feel better if the reduction in rights we let the government enact after 9-11 was revoked now. It's fine to have law enforcement and equip them with the best and latest sure, but I liked it better when the line between okay and too far was clearer, and guaranteed.

      I don't like the idea of computer controlled things having weapons. I think IA is what's going to do us all in anyway. It won't be the zombies.
  • Considering how trustworthy cops are with the weapons they already have...

      Cops shouldn't have weapons?
  • You know.. Connecticut, as well as every other State and Nation, should learn how to do their current job duties dutifully before adding more responsibilities to their lists... My estimations are that if each paid worker did their job duties as explained, written and required upon hiring, per se, then there would be no need for 'reaching for the stars' for answers of security.. It's all this 'political correctness' as to not hurt people's feelings/emotions that is causing international Terrorism to not be stopped.. However, just in every house there are 'rules' that need to be kept, so there are rules in every city and county and State... So I can't understand why 'missiles on drones' are needed for local 'criminals' when all that might need to be done is to take them into Court for a hearing.. If there is 'fear' involved, then I guess hiring the less fearful of being a Law Enforcer might be a good idea.. I mean, don't police know that their job is a dangerous one when applying??? They do know that guns and fights and drugs and beatings and murders and rapes and such is part of their Job, right? Local crime charts will show what sorts of 'crime' they will be dealing with with Law, if they do not know... But it's such a shame to know that there are those who rape, and murder and fight and drug and beat around town...
  • A really BAD idea.
