[Wired] U.S. Drones Are Now Sniffing Mexican Drugs

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
This is Neeto! Enjoy


It used to be that the Department of Homeland Security flew drones over the U.S.-Mexican border to keep watch for illegal immigrants. That proliferation of military technology to a civilian mission isn’t without its share of malfunctions: not only did the communications systems occasionally fritz out, but on at least one occasion, a small drone — the property of the Mexican government — crashed into an El Paso backyard. But now the drones are taking on a new mission: hunting drug gangs in Mexico.

Lots of people here in Mexico complain about sovereignty but I think it´s just a political matter.

Crime should not be subject of one country, if the US has the technology and the will then it should be used, at the end both sides of the border are favored. Besides mexican politicians have two faces, here in Mexico they state there is a clear violation of mexican laws, but US states they are using more and more drones because mexican government asked them to do it in order to fight crime.

What Ever keeps the Druggs off the streets!!!
I don't give a rats tail side about the politics involved, As long as the drugs Are Reduced, WIN!!!!

Id' let Google have a Window to my hard drive if it meant Helping the war on drugs!

I Personally have Family members that Struggled/ing with Dependency, and reducing it on the streets would be better then most other solutions.
