Drones in the sky yet nigger crime is left unchecked. I suppose if one of these crimes is caught on camera by the drone, it would have to quickly delete the video, before it is labeled as a "racist"

It's so deadly, but looks like a flying chrome pecker.

How bizarre!

Put a big pair of nuts on the back. It would be really cool.

Hmm, how many teen-age computer prodigy's out there think they can hack the signal and take the plane. I'd laugh my ass off, even more if they crashed it into Englewood.
