"If people don't trust law enforcement, that's a bigger issue."

"We need to see UAVs as tools"
Todd Humphreys "The Concerned"
assistant professor of aerospace engineering
defending against GPS spoofing & jamming

My Solution:

Write a letter to the FAA.
Prompted by Humphrey interview

"I understand that safety is a huge concern in the UAV debate... however, Americans need the FAA to be more involved than ever in the testing and research of unmanned aerial vehicles.

We mustn’t settle on the awareness that there are risks associated with UAVs.

Solutions must be formulated to combat these risks, and they should be sought as soon as possible." They're coming... And it's okay. Civic Engagementt
