Homeland Security Department ordered so many drones it doesn’t know what to do with all of them…

The Homeland Security Department ordered so many drones it can’t keep them all flying and doesn’t have a good plan for how to use them, according to a new audit the department’s inspector general released Monday.

American law enforcement agencies at all levels are also increasingly turning to drones for use in detecting or preventing crimes in the U.S. But they find themselves butting heads with civil libertarians who worry about intrusion into innocent citizens’ private lives.

ADDED: According to the FAA one of the primary launch sites for US law enforcement drones is right here in Middle TN… and MTSU is neck deep in the domestic law enforcement drone program…

The FAA has MTSU listed as one of the 63 approved launch sites for US drones.
