DRONES AND PRIVACY
Timothy T. Takahashi, Ph.D.
The Los Angeles Times recently reported the first instance in which militay
drone aircraft participated in the arrest of United States citizens on United
States soil. A Customs and Border Protection Predator B drone played a ke
role in the arrest of Rodney Brossart and his three sons at their North Dakota
ranch. With the conclusion of the Second Gulf War, pressures mount to utilize
surplus drones and other quasi-military drone technology on the home front.
This monograph summarizes the known facts of the Brossart case, describes the
capabilities of military surveillance drone aircraft, and discusses whether a
case similar to Brossart could serve as a catalyst fur Supreme Court action. If
such a case were appealed, the Supreme Court could issue a judgment
articulating a new standard controlling how the Fourth Amendment governs
robotic surveillance.
