Big Brother is Watching Y O U !!!!

"I wasn't ready to publicize this," Executive Assistant Police Chief Martha Montalvo said. She and other department leaders hastily organized a news conference when they realized the local news channel had captured the entire event on camera.

"We still haven't even decided how we were going to go forward on this task, so it seemed premature to me to announce this to the media," Montalvo said. "But since, obviously, the media found out about it, then I don't see any reason why just not go forward with what we have so far."

Montalvo told reporters the unmanned aircraft would be used for "mobility" or traffic issues, evacuations during storms, homeland security, search and rescue, and also "tactical." She admitted that could include covert police actions.

A large number of the officers at the test site were assigned to the department's ticket-writing Radar Task Force. Montalvo insisted they were only there to provide "site security," even though KPRC cameras spotted those officers heavily participating in the test flight.

Remember when we first started flying Predator Drones in the Middle East for "forward observations"?

We were assured that they were "unmanned and unarmed vehicles, really - just large toys"

Remember when the CIA was tracking a Taliban Chief by drone video, and when the "un-named" Joint Chief of Staff Officer said "it's a shame we can't just reach out and kill him" the CIA agent in charge gave the order, and presto - the Predator fired a missle and took him out?

Try to remember that next time your on the interstate and you look up to see an unmanned aircraft being used for "mobility" or traffic issues.
It's just a toy....really...
