Private Spy Drone A Reality

Eye spySome months ago, this blogger mused at the possibility that surplus military spy drones would soon find their way into the hands of nosy neighborhood spy committees. Drones used by an HOA? Naw, too far out to be plausible.

Well, it wasn’t such a crazy prediction after all. A cheap spy drone was actually used over a meat-packing plant near Oak Cliff, Texas, to spy on the Columbia Meat Packing plant. Now, video from the spy drone is being used in criminal indictments of the owners of the plant for illegally dumping pigs blood into the Trinity River. The fines could be huge, up to one-and-a-half million dollars, making the drone purchase a pretty worthwhile investment.

How long will it take for these surplus drones to end up in the hands of the HOA police so they can scope out that illegal hot tub in your back yard? Believe me. Not long.
