As usual, the media emphasizes privacy concerns while saying next to nothing about the wide range of proven and potential benefits of this technology. We have unfortunately come to expect this kind of willful ignorance from reporters.
Some legislators fare no better. Consider the comment from State Rep. Mary Mushinsky, who said, “We had one incident in New Jersey where somebody shot down their neighbor’s drone because he was using the drone to harass the neighbor.”
With all due respect, ma’am, we have seen no report suggesting that the operator was harassing anybody. Please, learn the facts before you cast your vote on anything pertaining to this issue (or any other issue, for that matter).
Stupidity aside, the Connecticut legislature appears ready to abstain from instituting a moratorium on drone use.
