Or should they be allowed to peep in your bathroom if they suspect you're a druggie?
Hawaii lawmakers are considering banning police from using drones (unmanned aerial vehicles) to gather evidence without a warrant. The bill would make an exception for emergency situations (search and rescues, etc.).
I understand the criminals in Hawaii are frustrating scumbags, but Hawaii's police shouldn't be given the power to invade someone's privacy if they don't have a probable cause.
The state should have created strong binding enforceable privacy policies for police drone use back in 2014, a year after police forces could have applied for a permit to use drones.
Drones is exciting technology that can turn the tides in the war against criminals, but police needs to adhere to the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which prohibits unreasonable searches, and requires any warrant to be judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause.
