big brother or just paranoia?

i saw online that a guy was posting pictures taken at the vikings/packers game dec 30.. pictures of a military drone hovering over the metrodome... a drone supposedly operated by the TSA.....



so? the govt stepping up its "observe and identify" policy or is it just wild speculation due to the current political climate in the country?

http://facethepolitics.com/2013/01/t...-packers-game/

Quote:
The TSA yesterday denied employing an unmanned surveillance drone at the December 30th Vikings-Packers game at the Metrodome in Minnesota, dismissing online photographs of the flying craft.
As we reported earlier in the week, Attorney Nathan M. Hansen took photographs of the spy drone and posted them to his twitter feed following the game.
The images revealed a small drone with four rotors hovering high above the crowds.
In our original report, Infowars noted that an alternative explanation could have been that the drone was being used for sports photography.
Of course, it is not beyond any realms of possibility that the TSA would employ such devices, however, given that police departments all across the nation, as well as other federal agencies under the umbrella of the Department of Homeland Security are actively deploying drones in US skies.
Commenters on the TSA blog were also quick to point out that Hansen’s photographs included TSA agents standing around the Metrodome fan plaza on the west side.
The TSA’s Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response teams, or VIPR teams, illustrated that fact that the widely loathed federal agency continues to metastasize into an occupational security force.
At time of writing, Bob Burns nor any other TSA source has confirmed that these agents were present at the game.
Last year, the NFL announced that it would phase in TSA-style pat downs of fans entering stadiums. The Department of Homeland Security has also worked closely with the NFL on numerous occasions to promote its “See Something, Say Something” snitch campaign.
As we have exhaustively documented, the TSA has long since expanded outside of airports, and is now in the process of transforming itself into a security force that will have a presence at virtually every major public venue, from sports events, to political functions, to music concerts.


and IMO the scariest part of the article:

Quote:
Last year, the TSA was responsible for over 9,000 checkpoints across the United States, a number set to increase thanks to the agency’s bloated budget and its expansion beyond anything vaguely related to transportation.
One such checkpoint involving TSA agents took place last year in Tennessee, where Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR) teams checked trucks at five weigh stations and two bus stations in the state, as well as making trucks pass through x-ray scanners. TSA officials also used the checkpoint to try and recruit truck drivers to become citizen snitches under the First Observer Highway Security Program

Yeah those fvckers are all over the place in Nashville . The TSA I mean , I haven't noticed any drones yet but those bastards have a fleet of all white Chevy mid size SUV .

I've even noticed in the last year airport police pulling vehicles over on public roadways. I've seen a bunch of at stuff at and around the airport that makes me very wary of what's going on.

Those things are becoming cheaper and cheaper to own. I wouldn't be surprised if it was being operated by the stadium in the same manner the Goodyear Blimp hovers over the stadiums.

They will become floating targets here. Kinda like the intersection red light cams in a small town here that mysteriously kept getting shot down.

What jurisdiction if any ever, would they have on a public roadway?

I heard that they are using those little drones to monitor RAD's just in case some nut job tries to move a dirty bomb or a real life warhead.

Transportation Safety Administration. No judge has told them to stop. No citizen has killed them for trying.

Depends. If you wish to board a plane, you have to get past them. Driving on the road has become a privilege, so it's a grey area. Some states have laws about it, some don't.
