Janet “Uncle Mort” Napolitano’s Department of Homeland Security stands ready to use any means available to keep Americans safe, as we see in North Dakota:
A judge denied a request to dismiss charges Wednesday against Rodney Brossart, a man arrested last year after a 16-hour standoff with police at his Lakota, N.D., ranch. Brossart’s lawyer argued that law enforcement’s “warrantless use of [an] unmanned military-like surveillance aircraft” and “outrageous governmental conduct” warranted dismissal of the case, according to court documents obtained by U.S. News. …
Court records state that last June, six cows wandered onto Brossart’s 3,000 acre farm, about 60 miles west of Grand Forks. Brossart allegedly refused to return the cows, which led to a long, armed standoff with the Grand Forks police department. At some point during the standoff, Homeland Security, through an agreement with local police, offered up the use of an unmanned predator drone, which “was used for surveillance,” according to the court documents.
While our 2,000-mile-long border with collapsing Mexico remains undefended, the DHS is using military drones to settle a dispute over a handful of cows. Will these drones have to start shooting missiles at people whose cups of soda are too large before we figure out that something is wrong here?
