Michigan lawmaker aims to limit the use of drones

AP Wire • Jul 21, 2015 at 12:21 PM

The bill introduced Thursday by state Rep. Tom McMillin, R-Rochester Hills, would require police to either have a warrant or show an imminent danger before using a drone.

Law enforcement would have to immediately destroy any information gathered by the drone not related to the target. Information gathered from the drone couldn't be used as evidence in court.

McMillin said Michigan "citizens should not have to worry about Big Brother looking down on them from above."

The American Civil Liberties Union also backs the bill.
