Drones over Chicago schools?

Chicago alderman George Cardenas is proposing the city use drones to buzz through the skies as part of an effort to keep students safe while walking to school. "We could use the help.! Why not use drones in safe passage.?? There is no doubt technology is migrating from military use. ... It's going to take time to find those uses in an urban environment. It is, however, the future and I think people will want to take that leap. I think eventually we’re going to have to look at this technology."

Here's what ordinary citizens think of the idea:
  • Drones could be used to follow Chicago's aldermen around to see if they are doing their job.
  • Interesting how there's willingness to spend on anything BUT schools.
  • Elect the arrogant apostles of secular socialism and you get what they dish...democrats care about nothing but $$$ to run again and power over people...their toxic policies naturally rot a nation, state or city...see Detroit after 40 years of democrat monster gov-meant/hi taxes/debt and so on....
  • Yet another policing and physical capital solution. The only way to keep kids safe is through human and moral capital development. This is on tough work. Why aren't political leaders talking about work force development?
  • Ok, lets cut music, art, libraries and all forms of enrichment out of the schools along with PE, but the city will be able to fly drones over the city at $75 an hour? CPD has trouble identifying suspects in neighborhoods so now they will have video? Oh yes, Cardenas probably has a relative or friend that has a company that could supply the drones to CPS / CPD, if he isn't an investor.
  • Apparently this guy didn't get the memo that Chicago is F'ing bankrupt.
  • Hey alderman. Why don't you walk with the kids to make sure they are safe? You know, be one of Michelle's walking 'school buses'.
  • Drones? How about imposing discipline at schools and requiring parents to be more attentive to their kids. How stupid can this man gets. Everything to the government including the obligations of parents to watch their kids.
  • Alderman, we already have enough protection for our kids if we'd use it. It's called mothers and fathers.
  • ...or you could let your citizens have the right to be armed and take care of the street punks themselves!
  • What is a drone supposed to do? Catch a bullet?
  • Lunacy, but it is Chicago. What exactly are the drones suppose to do after the fact? Shoot a hell fire missile and do more collateral damage Utter refusal to face the real problem and it is not panacea of the the left, more gun control.
  • There is no expectation of privacy on public property, so anyone caught violating ordinance, or statute on a drone's camera is in legal jeopardy, be they child, adult, or cop!
  • How about having some real programs to educate young black men, help them find meaningful employment and get them out of gangs?
  • The solution is always pour "more money" into a dysfunctional school system, right? If You want to see kids' education improve, let parents take their education money to whichever schools they choose, public or private. Competition is an effective method for weeding out schools that can't perform adequately. The days of bloated government telling people where and how to educate their children need to come to an end! Power to the people! That's the kind of hope and change we need.
