Who said they could do this?

I hate to drone on about this, but is anybody else paying attention? How can this be allowed?
Surveillance drones have a new mission. According to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) they will be used for “public safety”. Janet Napolitano, Secretary of the DHS, told a House Committee meeting on Homeland Security that the more than 30,000 drones that will be deployed into American skies are just arbitrarily watching out for US citizens.
Hey, all that new-fangled surveillance just might be useful in the coming efforts to remove the types of weapons from law-abiding citizens that would allow them to protect themselves from, well, a run-away govenment. The chess pieces are being moved into place, some taking to the sky. Paranoia? Justified concern?
