Should It Be A Crime To Shoot Down A Drone Over Your Property?

A Hillview man has been arrested after he shot down a drone flying over his property – but he’s not making any apologies for it. “I just think you should have privacy in your own backyard,” said William Merideth, 47, “I went and got my shotgun and I said, “I’m not going to do anything unless it’s directly over my property.”” That moment soon arrived, “within a minute or so, here it came… it was hovering over top of my property, and I shot it out of the sky.” Merideth was arrested and charged with first degree criminal mischief and first degree wanton endangerment…

As so often happens, the criminals win over people’s rights. The Constitution has no provision for personal privacy. Probably because it is common sense.

Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.

Thomas Jefferson

This is a clear example that the limits of people’s rights were violated.
