CBS News reports that the city’s plan to deploy drones as part of security for the Times Square crowd was defeated – by Mother Nature:

There was to be plenty of security in place: Uniformed and plain-clothed officers positioned on the ground and on rooftops, along with 1,200 cameras rolling on the crowds.

The pouring rain did keep the NYPD from deploying drones as they had planned to, but Police Commissioner James O’Neill said revelers shouldn’t be concerned.

It’s only a question of time, though, until the city routinely uses drones to surveill us all in the city. Are you prepared for that? Are you okay with that? If not, what are you doing about it?
