Late Monday night, the DHS was conducting a boarder security mission, and according to Customs and Boarder Protection, the drone developed "mechanical problems" when it was about 20 miles southwest of San Diego.
Spokesman Mike Friel, said the operators of the drone decided to crash the $12 million dollar surveillance aircraft into the Pacific. This was one of ten such drones the DHS uses to survey the boarder of Mexico, and was one of the two Predators equipped with special radar designed to be used over the ocean.
Drones Over the Skies
Last year, there was a heated debate Nationwide about the use of drones over our skies. This mainly stemmed from the argument that President Obama says he can use drones, in the new battlefield; USA. This debate raged and in the end the U.S. Military Industrial Complex remained the victors, as the status quo remains, and even US citizens can be drone bombed here on the homeland.
So, as you can see it is not just the safety of these UAV's that are the concern, but it is the actual application of these dragon-tooth painted Predators roaming, surveying, following, and even targeting you.
