D'oh! Police Drone Crashes Into Police SWAT Team
Editor's note: this incident occurred in March. Sorry for the confusion.
In a recent investigative report by the Center for Responsive Politics and Hearst newspapers, the authors expressed concern that drones were being pushed into the domestic market before safety and ethics issues had been sufficiently addressed. Such fears were confirmed this week when the first police department in the country to acquire an aerial drone crashed the $300,000 aircraft into its own SWAT team.
