This the type of legislation that NEEDS Bi-Partisanship support! If Gov. Dayton vetoes because the police tell him to do so, I will NOT vote for him in 2014!

A very good idea. Illegal searches of this type without a warrant would pretty much ensure work for lawyers and lawsuit costs for taxpayers as their primary result. A common sense proposal

What about surveillance cameras in St. Paul and Minneapolis? Funny how nobody has proposed limiting them. Oh, I forgot: those cameras are only in use in Democrat areas where there is so much crime and violence and are not needed anywhere else.

as long as they aren't armed they are just a cheaper means of doing what law enforcemnet already does with planes or helicopters.

The police should have to get a search warrant to use these drones. The only situation I can think of where they shouldn't is if someone's life is in immediate danger. The difference between a helicopter and a drone is that helicopters are noisy and large enough to see. They can make drones that are so small they can't be seen or heard.
