52. It's easier to shoot porn out of drones than it is from helicopters
The city of Anaheim, CA has had low flying helicopters for many years that shine multi-million candlepower searchlights down on the backyards of homes at night in the cities' residential neighborhoods. My late parents were RepubliNazis who thought it was truly a wonderful thing. They just loved living in Stalag 66. The, uh peace officers there don't even need "probable cause" to buzz your neighborhood after dark. They just do it for fun, or else in search of late night "skinny dippers" who are relaxing at home in their back yard swimming pools.
