Democrats are doing everything they can to use the coronavirus crisis as a scapegoat to institute their leftist agenda and turn the U.S. into a police state. One Democrat Mayor is even going as far as using a Chinese company’s drones to track citizens every move. Past reports suggest that the drones actually feed China data.
The Mayor of Elizabeth New Jersey, J. Christian Bollwage is the latest Democrat to invoke police state measure to ‘stop the spread of coronavirus’. The police department will use a fleet of five DJI Mavic 2 UAV drones on loan from manufacturer DJI to patrol Elizabeth. It will convey an automated message from Bollwage to “stop gathering, disperse, and go home.”
If this wasn’t creepy enough, DIJ is a Chinese company and Immigration and Customs Enforcement warned in 2017 that the drones are collecting information on crucial U.S. infrastructure and the U.S. Army has banned their use.
“If these drones save one life, it is clearly worth the activity and the information that the drones are sending,” the mayor said Friday in an MSNBC interview.
Concerns began to pour in from Elizabeth residents, asking the police department to address privacy concerns.
Regarding comments on drones, we are trying to save lives, not be big brother. If this plan saves 1 life, then its worth it. All its doing is spreading an automated notice about social distance. No recording or pictures are taken, just a tool of encouragement to follow the rules. pic.twitter.com/KnptwsxBQ2— Elizabeth NJ Police (@epdnj) April 8, 2020
Our government using drones to track us should alarm everyone. Are we willing to give up our liberties this quickly because of a virus? I find it incredibly ironic and sad that U.S. politicians are now using a Chinese company’s drones to spy on American citizens while we’re on lock down because of a virus that originated in China.
