LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A Republican Michigan lawmaker has proposed measures to restrict the use of pilotless aircraft by law enforcement to gather information.
The bill introduced Thursday by Republican Rep. Tom McMillin of 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 says 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.
