Comment Re:"...the same as trespassing." (Score 1) 1170 1170

One item you excluded is that "physical force" does *not* included deadly force. Deadly force is defined in 503.010 (1), and is distinct and separate from 503.010 (4) which defines physical force.

Except there can't be deadly force executed on something that can't be killed. I bet the courts will ultimately rule that the drone is a person by proxy in this regard. These are monumental violations of private property and privacy. I don't know if Kentucky has recording consent laws, but in many states you cannot be recorded in a place of expected privacy without explicit permission from both parties.

Comment It's the facility's responsibility (Score 1) 227 227

Asking people to comply is a dumb policy and doesn't work. It's the facility's responsibility to maintain security. At the Pentagon, for instance, you can barely get a cell signal once you're in the walls because the building materials block the signals. There are a few spots where you can get a reliable signal, but for the most part if you're not by a window(and there aren't many), you're basically not getting access. On top of that rather natural effect, they sweep for broadcast wifi signals and such and you're required to turn in electronics when you walk into certain secure areas(and they will check you in those areas).

It's a first generation multirole stealth fighter(the F-117 is not a fighter and the F-22 is not multirole). The F-4(again, a first generation multirole fighter) was a boondoggle when it first released as well, and took many many variants to get right. The lessons learned on the F-4 turned directly into the F-14, F-15, F-16, and F/A-18.
