Drone Industry Invokes Boston Bombings in PR Pitch

COMMENT -  The drone industry, representing its 2,500 plus member, Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International,  has decided on the appropriate 'spin' and is working to exploit this opportunity to extend profits. 

There is nothing wrong with honest profits, but when so many of your members as highly disordered, or display these characteristics, people with conscience would consider what they are really doing.  
Perhaps they should police themselves and examine how their technologies are being used instead of just inviting everyone in to profit. 

What do you think is happening at GHS at  this moment? 
 The guy at Green Hills celebrate the spin that enriches as they chant, "More terror, more terror."  And Americans are scared.  Read this article if you doubt, "Americans 'snapping' by the millions."

And whose fault is this?  See above, and their fellow Greedvillians

In the wake of the Boston bombings, the president of the largest Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) organization wasted no time in pushing for drones - as some predicted those in the industry would.
Michael Toscano, president of the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International, said UASs could have provided critical situational awareness for first responders and law enforcement in Boston.
"UAS could be an important tool in the tool kit for first responders in the event of an emergency," he assured US News and World Report. "Whether it is in response to a natural disaster or a tragedy like we saw in Boston, UAS can be quickly deployed to provide first responders with critical situational awareness in areas too dangerous or difficult for manned aircraft to reach. Our industry is working to develop technologies to provide first responders with the best tools possible to do their jobs safely as they work to protect our communities."
This came as no surprise to those worried about the loss of civil liberties and privacy concerns with the use of drones.
Shahid Buttar, the Executive Director of the Bill of Rights Defense Committee, predicted this type of action immediately following the bombing. He told Wisconsin Reporter it was only a matter of time before someone used the event to call for drones to help in these types of situations.
"I do fear the events in Boston, that someone will say, 'If we would have had a drone over the finish line we would be able to track back the footage and see who it was. It will not surprise me when it happens," Buttar said hours after the tragedy.  MORE
