“Last June, six cows wandered onto [Rodney] Brossart’s 3,000 acre farm, about 60 miles west of Grand Forks,” usnews.com reports. “Brossart allegedly refused to return the cows, which led to a long, armed standoff with the Grand Forks police department. At some point during the standoff, Homeland Security, through an agreement with local police, offered up the use of an unmanned Predator drone, which ‘was used for surveillance.’” Brossart’s lawyer argued that his client’s case should be dropped given the “warrantless use of [an] unmanned military-like surveillance aircraft.” District Judge Joel Medd dismissed his objection as irrelevant and allowed Brossart’s prosecution for felony terrorizing (etc.) to proceed. You do know these drones can be/are armed, right?
