​Queensland MP wants police to use drones to fight crime

Townsville MP Scott Stewart reportedly wants the Queensland Police Force to look into the use of drone technology in an effort to curb what has been called a crime crisis in the state’s north.

“What I’ve been trying to do is look at as many different solutions as possible, and cutting-edge drone technology is so much cheaper than a police helicopter,” Stewart is quoted as saying. “We need to use the technology now and in the future to fight crime, not costly and old technology like helicopters.”

This is hilarious. I’m pretty sure MP Stewart has just seen the trailer for Fox’s latest piece of crap TV show “APB” and gone “Oh yeah, that’ll work!”.

Take a look at Mr Stewart’s inspiration for yourself…
