(I wasn't sure which forum to post this in, but considering the subject of drones is a fairly common topic on io9 because the future, it's going here.)

Anyway, I'm from St.Louis originally (holla!) and I just found out the new police chief there as well as the mayor has expressed interest in buying a drone for surveillance purposes, and the police chief has even written to the FAA about it. Apparently the chief thinks Busch Stadium is a terrorist target or something (false, that would be the Arch). You can read more about it here: http://blogs.riverfronttimes.com/dailyrft/2013/…

At any rate, if these are people running the city, it makes me kind of glad I haven't moved back.
