Charlottesville first City to pass Aerial Drone Ban
February 8, 2013 in Politics
This week, the city of Charlottesville, Virginia became the first city in the US to limit the use of unmanned aerial drones. Drafted by a local civil liberties organization, the law prevents police agencies from utilizing drones outfitted with anti-personnel devices such as lethal weapons, tasers and tear gas. It also bans all evidence collected with spy drones from being introduced as evidence in any criminal trials.
