Resurgent phoenix You are right, I was being sarcastic.
NewDream kq4ym, an interesting conjecture. I suspect incompetence might be the real reason, unless there is something about the delay that is making money for someone.
NewDream Like guns, drones should be permitted only for responsible adults. This pretty much excludes most cops.
NewDream Resurgent Phoenix, I hate the idea of outlawing anything. I think we have way too many laws already.
NewDream I love the idea of Droner's Ed in school. But then I got to thinking... In our modern schools, we tend to teach the students to follow orders rather than to think on their own. The term Droner's...
Resurgent phoenix Like self driving car......
Less just outlaw drones now and concentrate on building infrastructure for self driving cars.
kq4ym The FAA is the regulator of all aircraft and is now trying to figure out rules for drones to prevent hazards and work out the problems mentioned. Now, each operator has to petition the FAA for permission...
CitySolver Yes I am a fan of Breaking Bad, and in that the cops are quite measured, but still macho which is fine, but yes I suppose I have to confess that alot of my image of US is from Hollywood!!
Jim O'Reilly Must have been too much Kojak, Starsky and Hutch when they were growing up, but some American cops do have a machismo image of themselves. Most are civilised, despite Hollywood's portrayals!

Davedgreat2000 @Toby, the Drone in this instance lost signal from the controller and it went out of control and hit the bride. Anything can happen with these personal drones.
Jim O'Reilly @dave, and hackers will have a ball...just imagine all the crashes...and guess who pays compensation. It'll be the drone's owner.
Jim O'Reilly The drone could do the wedding cake in the face thing!
Jim O'Reilly @Toby, you're stealing the NRA's thunder. Hunter-drones are going to be huge in Montana. Just think, the elk will think it's a big bee, and you can avoid all that crawling through wet brush!
Toby @Jim: Re ".i guess they are a fun thing to take out to the desert with the 10-ton all-terrain armored vehicle we got." and I guess you have figured out what that vehicle is for now right...?
Toby @David Re "and the drone slams into the Bride, needless to say, blood could be seen on that pretty white dress." Surely you jest? What a sickener but...what a great theme for a new generation of...
