She Points a Gun at the Drone
The video taken by a drone shows that it is hovering near a woman’s residence and she is clearly not happy about it. She attempted to shoo it away by throwing stones at it, but the drone simply flew higher to avoid the projectiles. She then enters her home and re-emerges with a gun aimed at the flying vehicle. At this point, the pilot gets the message very clearly – this woman means business and she wants that drone out of her home’s vicinity pronto.
Video Goes Viral
The video goes viral with 173,000 YouTube views and the number is still growing. Media reports say that the incident occurred in Bellevue, Wash.
What about Privacy?
Some may think that the woman overreacted pulling a gun like that and while that may be true, it does raise a lot of questions related to drone piloting and privacy. Should pilots be flying their drones so close to properties? Shouldn’t the privacy of citizens be taken into consideration? At the very least, shouldn’t drone pilots be considerate of ones’ right to be let alone?
