Nothing more about this is being talked about, it was a police drone, the operator knew exactly where he was and what the operating rules are, they purposely flew the drone in a reckless manner. The police officer operator and his superiors should be charged and fined or incarcerated. But they wont as it is still the good ole boys club when it comes to police departments misbehaving, even in Canada. That flight school should be able to recover the repair costs and lost revenue at least.
Also agree. This is the type of behavior that makes people distrust the police in almost all of their actions. These irresponsible cops need to be chased out of their current line of work. McDonalds is hiring.
Similar to when an officer is texting and driving, or playing with their laptops. Distracted driving is distracted driving. Period.
Nah. Police officers are specially trained to be able to work with their computers, text, and other duties while driving, unlike the general public who have had NONE of this 'special training'. Tongue stuck firmly in cheek here.
Agree 100%. A good lawyer should sue the police for endangering lives of others and get financial damages for physical and mental suffering.
My opinion: it's not the first and not the latest..
