Using drones to watch on crime?

Using drones to watch on crime?
What do you think about having a drone high above the city that is taking high resolution photos every few seconds?
So that let's say someone gets his house robbed, police can trace back and watch it happening. Police wouldn't see robber's face but they could see him/ her as a dot going, getting in the car and then by tracing his/ her movements find out robber's identity.
I guess it could also be used to solve other cases like kidnapping people, missing children and old people...

But then again, I guess it could be used to invade other people's privacy. Especially if you're a celebrity or a politician, someone else could see where you are going and having meetings with.

Would that be a good thing or something you oppose?
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

You'd need a drone cloud to cover a city.

Fine with me, put some in the Oval Office, at Mara Crapo and Take a Dump Tower in NYC.

In an ideal world, I'd be all for it. In the real world, I would be very concerned about abuse.

We need oversight of all agencies with this kind of power - and we don't have it. So for the present time, count me as opposed.
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

There are large sections of our cities that are impossible to traverse undetected. The Von Neumann Street cameras are everywhere, so is crime.
It's amazing 'science' always seems to 'find' whatever it is funded for, and never the oppsite. Drich.

Anything is susceptible to abuse. But the average law abiding citizen gains more than they lose by the surveillance.

Cameras?  CAMERAS?  Dafuq ever happened to the good old days of police work - planting evidence, beating confessions out of suspects in back rooms?

Sam Spade wasn't a cop.

Okay, all the cops that inhabited the Sam Spade novels are dead.

Better?
