1. Unfortunately

drone usage will not be discontinued but drawing attention to what is going on at Camp Ripley is very important.
There has also been an expansion of building there and State training, integrating Military training with police training. This has come under the auspices of "Homeland Security". The training involves "crowd control" procedures and the wording is highly ambiguous.
I used to be ok with living near the facility but am less comfortable with it, this last year.
