    You're Nicked! Police Drone Nabs Its Suspect

    Big brother is getting bigger, but I still want one!

    Police have made their first arrest using a remote-controlled hover drone complete with thermal-imaging equipment.



    A suspected car thief was believed to be hiding from police in thick undergrowth in Bootle, Merseyside, so officers launched their new Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV).
    They used the on-board thermal imaging camera to seek out the teenager and pinpoint his hiding place 300-metres away.
    The officer operating the drone from the ground was then able to guide colleagues to the exact location and they arrested the 16-year-old youth.
    A second 20-year-old man was also arrested. Both have been released on bail pending further inquiries.
    Merseyside Police, who took delivery of the drone in November, say it can be used for monitoring everything from serious firearms incidents and hostage situations, to public events and football matches.

    Very high tech. Now, if their cops could grow some balls and jump into a river to save a little girl drowning and freezing to death instead of spending 90 minutes drinking coffee on the river bank watching her die, we'd be all set.

    West Mercia police will most probably fine the driver for illegal parking. They will be unable to grow "Balls" as it will offend their female officers

    Sorry Dug. Was mixing threads. See UK Nanny State - Here We Go Again. Am just still pissed at a system that allows cops to watch a kid struggle for her life for 97 minutes, and who ultimately dies.
