North Dakota to Get Armed Police Drones
National Public Radio’s The Two-Way blog reports that North Dakota police forces are about to get the nation’s first weaponized drones, following passage of a bill allowing them earlier this year. Ironically, this is coming about in spite of the legislation’s main sponsor, Republican state Rep. Rick Becker. While the law limits the type of weapons permitted to those in the “less than lethal” category—tear-gas, rubber bullets, beanbags, pepper spray and Tasers—the original bill would have entirely barred weapons from police drones. According to The Daily Beast, Becker told a hearing in March: “In my opinion there should be a nice, red line: Drones should not be weaponized. Period.” The original intent of his bill was to require police to obtain a search warrant before using a drone to gather evidence, as well as prohibiting weapons from drones. But to get the provision requiring search warrants passed, Becker had to drop the provision barring weapons.
