It was a reasonable question. While I am aware of incidents like these occurring elsewhere I do not recall any reports, certain non recently, of this type of behavior. The Gazette being a local paper, I was assuming that was the audience this commentary was directed to. In fact, they were reacting to a local incident, or more accurately - a local example of a national phenomenon.

ChuckD - You see things I don't. This article was clearly about interference with the media and civilian's right to film officers' behavior in public.

How often has this happened within this reporting area?

I've seen reports of it elsewhere, but do not recall a local incident outside of this one.

Apparently the judge didn't feel that way. The point you were trying to make was clear, the rationale as to why she would receive it was missing.

Agreed, he left money on the table to return home.

Yes, it's easy to appreciate what the privacy concerns could be, but, this article seemed to raise a concern about simply being monitored at this particular public event. I do not disagree at all that this technology could be abused re: privacy issues. Additionally, as the editorial page pointed out today there are significant safety issues. A few weeks back, a pair were arrested in NYC because their recreational use of a drone endangered a helicopter in flight.

Agreed, there was already an incident in NYC re: a helicopter and a small privately owned drone being used for recreational purposes.

Bail has to do with ensuring your appearance at court - is she a flight risk?

RE: The privacy issue - Outside of the drones' mobility, what is the difference between the drone and cameras owned by businesses and mounted outside of their respective buildings in the downtown area?

Not sure how Lebron exhibited immaturity when he went to Miami. He exercised his rights under the NBA contract to play where he wanted. RE: The "over the top" announcement - Prior to his decision to join the Heat, the fans and the media made a huge deal over the decision about where he was going to play. So, he scheduled an event to announce his decision, the decision that the world created a huge uproar over, and then they criticized him for making a big deal over it. James has been a great player and never embarrassed the league with off the court misbehavior. To my mind, the problems with Lebron have in reality, really been a problem with the fans and their attitudes towards the game and the players.

He's a crook, we don't call it a shame when other crooks go to jail.

You can blame Bush for some things but I don't see how he gets dragged into Nagin being a thief.
