It's about *Who* gets to see what.
There is no statistical surge of horrible quadcopter maimings.
This is just governments and corporations stopping the internet before it happens again.
The internet allows the surfs to openly communicate and spread the word without government control. This has been bad news for countries where governments used to rely on simple propaganda to keep the masses in line. We are now suffering the last generation of people to can't stand that the communication genie has been let out of the bottle. They are fighting tooth an nail to maintain 'conservative values', which means to say 'protect their own misbegotten position in society'.
So now these drones come along. Not only can we spread the word, we can also provide pictures of what happened.
The control is all about only allowing corporations and government to have drones.
It's anticompetitive pandering.
