Police Deploy Weaponized Drones To âEnhance Protection and Safety of Citizensâ
October 31st, 2011
As the government tightens its grip on everything from internet traffic to consumer purchasing habits theyâll need new technologies to maintain law and order in the new American paradigm.
The latest weaponâs system to be added to the police state quiver is the ShadowHawk Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, slated to be the eye-in-the-sky over Montgomery County, Texas, which has a population of about 500,000 people and neighbors the Greater Houston metropolitan area.
The U-A-V is capable of investigating crimes in progress. It also has night vision and can pick up heat signatures.
Itâs been used for military operations in countries like Afghanistan and East Africa but now itâs coming to a country near you.
âWeâre the only sheriffâs office in the state thatâs going to have a piece of equipment like this,â said Montgomery County Sheriff Tommy Gage.
Sheriff Gage introduced his departmentâs newest tool, the ShadowHawk Unmanned Aerial Vehicle or UAV.
âWe look forward to utilizing it in a variety of capacities that protect our employees from harm to the extent possible and to enhance the protection to our citizens and their safety,â said Montgomery County Chief Deputy Randy McDaniel.
