Brit Brother Surveillance Drones to Buzz Liverpool.

From ThisIsLondon:

Planned targets will be everything from youths riding motorbikes in a park to
clashes between rival football fans and armed sieges where it might be unsafe
for officers to come too close.


"People clamour for the feeling of safety which cameras give," said Assistant Chief Constable Simon Byrne.

Secure Beneath The Watchful Rotors.

The Jones Report adds a snippet from Orwell:

"In the far distance a helicopter skimmed down between the roofs, hovered
for an instant like a bluebottle, and darted away again with a curving flight.
It was the police patrol, snooping into people's windows. The patrols did not
matter, however. Only the Thought Police mattered."

Chapter 1 of George Orwell's 1984

While we're adding pop-culture excerpts, here's an addition of my own:

By the time Skynet became self-aware it had spread into millions of
computer servers across the planet. Ordinary computers in office buildings, dorm
rooms; everywhere. It was software; in cyberspace. There was no system core; it
could not be shutdown. The attack began at 6:18 PM, just as he said it would.
Judgment Day, the day the human race was almost destroyed by the weapons they'd built to protect themselves. I should have realized it was never our destiny to
stop Judgment Day, it was merely to survive it, together. The Terminator knew;
he tried to tell us, but I didn't want to hear it. Maybe the future has been
written. I don't know; all I know is what the Terminator taught me; never stop
fighting. And I never will. The battle has just begun.

- John Connor, in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines.
