Our founding fathers created the Bill Of Rights which are the first ten amendments to the Constitution of the United States. One of the most important amendments is the Fourth Amendment. It states “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized”(p. 11). What are our founding fathers were trying to do is keep our country from a police state, a state in which law enforcement could enter our homes without probable cause. This protection provides the citizens of the
The USA Patriot Act was signed into law on Oct. 26, 2001, due to the need for cooperation among all levels of security. Police and other department agencies were given powerful authority and encouraged to share information. This is to meet the goal for a safer America in times of turmoil including international affairs. But as the years have passed and as terrorist attacks seem to cease, people have begun to question if there’s too many restrictions on law enforcement were called off.
Howard County’s led officers into Prince George’s County, in part, due to information obtained from a search warrant. A global position system affixed to one of the defendant’s vehicles, and information gleaned from tracking one of the defendant’s cell phones led Howard County officers to the warehouse. Notably, the specific details involving Howard County’s investigation of Snowden and Caldwell were suppressed, but the State was permitted to elicit testimony indicating that Howard County officers were in Prince George’s County for an investigation. That evening, Detective Puglise was disguised as an electrician in a bucket truck. Detective Puglise testified that he observed Caldwell driving the blue Toyota Camry drive into a parking lot and position itself near a white box truck for approximately three minutes and then drive away.

Area 51 is a government research ground as well as a top-secret military base approximately one-hundred miles outside of Las Vegas, Nevada. Although a lot about this area is not much of a secret, as of 2013 the only public access allowed is to Extraterrestrial Highway. Even on this highway the ground is surveyed with drones and ground sensors. No one can get close to Area 51 without the base being notified. Members of Area 51 use whatever force necessary to keep the public away from the secret grounds.
Proportionality is a principle that addresses how much force is necessary to achieve a military objective. It requires combatants to take deliberate care to minimize harm to innocent civilians during an armed attack. The principle of proportionality pro¬hibits attacks on military targets where the expect¬ed harm to civilians would be excessive compared to the military advantage expected to be gained from the attack (Grove 2013).
Are you concerned with your safety from foreign threats? If you are like me you frequently have concerns about the safety of our country. To keep this country safe sometimes we have to take the necessary precautions to make sure that happens. In Daniel Byman 's article "Why Drones Work" he presents some major points about why our military should continue the use of drones in overseas military operations and why they are effective at what they do. He argues that the use of drones overseas poses no threat to U.S. forces and that the attacks produce fewer casualties than other alternative fighting methods that are currently used. Byman claims that the drone strikes are very effective at eliminating threats overseas and
Transcendentalism has been around since the mid-1800’s. It is a philosophical belief which introduced a new way understanding truth and knowledge. According to the transcendentalists, if knowledge could be found, it would derive from our intuition and contemplation of the internal soul and spirit, rather than relying on data from scientific evidence. Henry David Thoreau demonstrated his goal of self search and getting back in tune with nature by living in a self-built cabin for 2 years at Walden Pond. He arrived the knowledge of himself through reconnecting with nature. Our senior project is a near replication of Thoreau’s process to reach self knowledge. Instead of building a cabin in the woods, we decided documented our adventure through film to evidence our experience of reconnection to nature to serve as a medium for meditation to reach self enlightenment.
There are many societal changes taking place due to the advancement in technology such as, how certain drones are being used, how there have been different ways of learning things in different way, and differentiating between whether or not games are good or bad for generations nowadays.
Modern innovators are steadily churning out new technology that improves the standard of living around the world. Security cameras, burglar alarms, and special tags on clothes that beep when someone leaves the store without paying, are all examples of crime stopping innovation that makes life easier for the police force. Recently, law enforcement has discovered the secret to busting crime in the big city. Constant aerial surveillance is now possible with our friends, the drones. The podcast, Radiolab, recently teamed up with reporter, Alex Goldmark, to cover the little drones on their test runs in Dayton, Ohio and Juarez, Mexico, and the results were astounding. In mere minutes, entire crime organizations were effortlessly tracked and reported to authorities. This seems like a fantastic and effective way to stop crime, but murders and robberies are not the only things the camera can focus in on. Drones are now a tool to monitor the private lives of unsuspecting citizens. Anyone could have access to information recorded by the drones, and anyone can use it to further their own agenda; an agenda which might not coincide with the good intentions of law enforcement.
The chill slowly leaked through the pores of my sweatshirt; the sun shined bright, but helped very little to warm my skin. A single breath left a puff of mist as white as snow. Despite that, there was none there were leaves, dying and living as far as the eye could see. A stout 6’1 I stood, feeling as if I owned the world as the little black device with 4 propellers soared through the air; an object I controlled. Slow then fast, high then low, it circled around me, I believed I was in complete control. There they were, standing gazing and admiring as it took flight as if nothing could have gone wrong. A young woman ripe in age, her face so young, but you could tell she was no younger than 20. Beside her stood
With the advancement of surveillance technology, many citizens feel that their privacy rights have been violated due to homeland security and the threat of terrorism. Throughout history our government has implemented domestic and international surveillance as a way to safeguard our society from other countries. Now the question that seems to arise within our society is if the government is infringing on our civil liberties? Or is this indeed protecting our nation from imminent danger?
When we think about drone or UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), first thing comes to our mind is; frightening, alien looking unmanned aircraft that has been involved with so many bombings and targeted killings. In “Drone Home: What Happens When Drones Return to America”, from Time, Lev Grossman wrote drones are dreaded all around the globe, and possibly they have gotten this fear through the United States Military. Drone technology has been greatly improved last decade, now third of entire Air Force’s fleet is unmanned. U.S Government is sending drones to many war zones to eliminate high-ranking enemies or do surveillance successfully. Even though this rapidly growing technology is changing our perspective of war, it also changing our everyday life drastically to help our community. The U.S government should use drones because it will help us protect our borders securely, help fight with unexpected natural disasters and help our police force to document crime scenes.
Drones are evolving into something that is very useful and helpful, not only for the U.S. military, but for everyone in general when used appropriately. Drones are a new concept introduced into the military. The military is always looking for tactics to improve the surveillance of enemies. The surveillance cameras that are installed on drones continue to have a monumental impact and are beneficial to help aid and navigate the military during necessary attacks.
