Nitwit News – January 29

A woman called the sheriff on her neighbor in St. Charles, Illinois, who was sticking a gun out his bathroom window and shooting. The unidentified man, who is 80 years old, told a deputy he was simply shooting off the icicles that were hanging from his roof.

Up there… in the sky… it’s a bird… it’s a plane… it’s a Predator drone finding you because you wouldn’t give your neighbor his cows back after they wandered onto your property. Rodney Brossart, a farmer from North Dakota, was arrested after being located by Predator drone. Sentenced this week, he is the first American to be sent to jail thanks to drone assistance. In June 2011 police attempted to arrest him because he wouldn’t return the three cows that had grazed onto his property. This resulted in an armed standoff between Brossart, his three sons and a SWAT team on his property. It ended only after the family of perps was located by a Predator drone borrowed from Customs and Border Patrol.

… Fast forward to this week and a federal judge has rejected Brossart’s attempt o have the case dismissed on the grounds that there was no warrant for the drone surveillance.

… While it may seem creep that that drones created to protect American borders are now being used to apprehend American citizens, it should be noted that manned helicopters or a small plane could have done the same thing. Next time, just give the man his cows back.
