Police get armed drones in Nebraska!!

Geeez, writing about incipient fascism below, hardly did I expect to already see this in the news! Of course they only want to arm police drones with bean bags and tasers and gas now - as if those have not already killed a number of people worldwide when used by police on citizens!  It wasn't reported in too many mainstream media sources, but lots of alternative news sources!

* Washington Times: North Dakota cops can fire Tasers, tear gas from drones

* The Independent: North Dakota becomes first US state to legalise use of armed drones by police

* NPR: North Dakota Legalizes Armed Police Drones

* The Daily Beast: First State Legalizes Taser Drones for Cops, Thanks to a Lobbyist

* Indian Country: Moya-Smith: North Dakota Authorizes Use of Armed Police Drones ... Really.

* One Day Soon, That Drone Overhead May Be Pointing a Taser at You:

California police already are considering it.
