According to the South Carolina Homepage a woman in York called law enforcement last week to report a very unusual peeping tom.
“The woman told the York County Sheriff’s Office she woke up around 2 a.m. on Feb. 11, and saw a light outside her window on Lomita Road. When she got up to investigate, she saw that the light was attached to what the incident report describes as a flying “drone.” The drone then flew away from the woman’s home toward a Duke Energy building.
By the time the woman contacted sheriff’s deputies on Monday, she said she had already contacted Duke as well as a relative who used to work for the power company, apparently believing they were operating the drone. She was then told to file a police report over the incident.
The report doesn’t offer any description of the drone, other than the bright light described by the witness.”
Our “privacy” is gone. We have allowed this ridiculous encroachment on our rights by being apathetic and too accepting. As long as we have our precious wifi connection and all the latest toys it seems that we are willing to accept a society that would make Orwell’s book, 1984, look tame by comparison. I even saw an ad for a smart TOILET ! Really? What are people thinking? This is just disgusting. Creepy doesn’t begin to describe it. Who on earth could possibly be okay with their bathroom activities on the internet?
I am sick of this encroaching government. I am sick of idiots who insist on having everything computerized and I am sick of the idiots who keep coming up with smart things, each one more outrageous than the last. I am sick of clueless boneheads who hail these privacy robbing, humanity stealing inventions as the latest greatest marvel. What is WRONG with people?
