Opinion: Drones and the Law

Attorney David Peel ponders the legality of drones in an opinion piece for the Millington Star. While drones can be used for positive, protective measures such as searching for a missing child or tracking down suspects running from law enforcement, Peel also mentions the dangers of armed drones that are used to drop missiles and surveillance drones that can listen in on civilian conversations. Nine states have already passed some laws restricting drone use, he notes, questioning whether the law can keep up with the  technology.
