Heads Up! Drones Coming Down


Drones are everywhere. President Obama talks about them bombing Syria, and the good that the unmanned aircrafts can do, but nobody is talking about the damage they are doing here in America.

The remote controlled aerial drones are barely regulated and are now wreaking havoc on the American people.

In LA, an 11-month-old girl was hit in the head by a crashing drone and was sent to the hospital. She was in a stroller hit in the middle of the day.

A New York teacher was charged with reckless endangerment after crashing his drone during the US Open tennis tournament.

In Louisiana, a man shot down a drone being flown by his neighbor because he said it was spying on his wife.

During a nice day in the Hamptons, several people strolling down the street dodged a drone that hit the sidewalk and burst into flames.

In a Sunnyvale California park, a fire spread to over an acre before local fire department was able to put it out. How did it start? You guessed it, a drone.

Adam Rupeka in New York got mad when the State Police confiscated his drone after flying it into the State Capitol in Albany.

Then there is this. A giant brick of marijuana falling from the sky crushed an Arizona couple’s doghouse. Apparently the package fell from a drone.

These stories all happened since September 1st and are just a few of the many that are out there.

Drones are becoming more popular, and now are becoming more dangerous. It is just a matter of time before lawmakers start restricting drone use to every third Thursday from 6:00am to 7:00am.

In the meantime, keep your head up when walking your baby or watching a tennis match. And whatever you do, don’t let your dog get crushed by a ton of weed. Also remember that if you neighbor is spying on your wife with a drone, it is illegal to shoot it down.
