New York Gives New Meaning To The Term “Labor Day Drones”

New York gives new meaning to the term “Labor Day Drones.”

New York police will use drones to monitor backyard parties this weekend, spurring privacy concerns:

Those attending outdoor parties or barbecues in New York City this weekend may notice an uninvited guest looming over their festivities: a police surveillance drone.

The New York City police department plans to pilot the unmanned aircrafts in response to complaints about large gatherings, including private events, over Labor Day weekend, officials announced Thursday.

No longer a holiday for worker bees but rather a chance for the authorities to “deploy the drones!” to ensure your safety.

Steampunk bee. Cyberpunk style. Bronze and steel parts. Retro. 

Because if everyone’s having too much fun your government will order you to go home and think about what you’ve done.  The drones are just there to protect you. Like the Patriot Act.


Maybe we should track them instead of vice versa.
