Feinstein, Her Home Spied On By Drone, Wants To Regulate Them


Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) favors regulation of unmanned aerial vehicles (drones), telling CBS’ “60 Minutes” a drone spied into the window of her home during a protest and that privacy concerns for the technology were “major,” Politico reports. “When is a drone picture a benefit to society? When does it become stalking? When does it invade privacy? How close to a home can a drone go?” Feinstein asked.

“This is a whole new world now, and it has many complications,” she added. “What is an appropriate law enforcement use for a drone? When do you have to have a warrant? When don't you have to have a warrant? What's the appropriate governmental use for a drone?”
