10. Those reasons fail.

First unarmed drones are no more a weapon than an unarmed helicopter is, if this was an issue of armed drones replacing unarmed helicopters I would fully agree but its not.
As for the part about having someone in the helicopter? Ok psychologically I admit it provides a nice illusion of safety to think that a human is inside the helicopter but thats all it is.
I did have a chuckle though over the whole "The police can do their job just fine the way they have it now."
Why? Because just because you believe something was fine doesnt mean we should bury our heads in the sand when it comes to change, if we did that then we would be eating uncooked meat still because things were so much better before "fire" was discovered or atleast I am sure there was a Neanderthal way back then who thought that and we all know how they ended up.
