Police and city records show Ouaknine and her motel had been the subject of an undercover operation targeting prostitution starting in September. Ouaknine was arrested on Oct. 28 on three counts of renting rooms to prostitutes for $20 an hour. Her case is pending.
The city's nuisance abatement board sent her a warning letter and summoned her to appear for a hearing in February based on the investigation. It's the second time since 2008 that the board has targeted the motel, city records show.
She says she's doing nothing illegal.
"They've tried everything to shut me down and have failed," she said. "Now they bring this truck to intimidate me and my customers."
Some neighbors surrounding the Parisian Motel say the truck is another form of constant police harassment.
On a recent afternoon, Leo Cooper watched as two undercover street-crime officers jumped out of an unmarked Ford Crown Victoria just yards from the Peacemaker. They began questioning a group of men gathered at the corner. Within minutes, one of the men ran away. A second man was charged with loitering.
"This is what happens here every day. We can't sit outside without being harassed," said Cooper, 27. "Now we have that truck. Most of us are not doing anything wrong. We can't be outside?"
are drones as effective as police helicopters?
can drones be flown safely in areas open to general aviation? - like around cities - maybe if they are assigned a specific altitude range that other aviation must avoid
or are the to be used to guard our borders
still where does the forth amendment hold sway on drones or do we have to wait for scotus to rule

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep

You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the struggle for independence. —CHARLES A. BEARD

drones can be armed and used to target "terrorists".
drones can be used to spread air-borne viruses.
