“Court Upholds Domestic Drone Use in Arrest of American Citizen”

A judge denied a request to dismiss charges Wednesday against Rodney Brossart, a man arrested last year after a 16-hour standoff with police at his Lakota, N.D., ranch. Brossart’s lawyer argued that law enforcement’s “warrantless use of [an] unmanned military-like surveillance aircraft” and “outrageous governmental conduct” warranted dismissal of the case, according to court documents obtained by U.S. News.

It’s odd to me that the first case (that I have heard of) involving the government using Predator drone capabilities against an American citizen…

…revolves around a dispute over six cows?

That seems like a local issue, not a national security priority.
