drones to surveil the poor

"Calvert County is one of at least four law enforcement agencies across the country using drones during the coronavirus outbreak to communicate with homeless people, many of whom are surviving outdoors without sinks to wash their hands, and without reliable bathrooms, healthcare, internet access or electricity.
The idea, according to law enforcement officials interviewed by NBC News, is that homeless encampments are often tucked away in hard-to-access areas, and a drone can allow police to patrol with a live camera feed and blast information from the sky without having to venture in person at a time when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is urging social distancing."

Spending tax money on Big brother police drones to further punish people who got displaced from jobs or homes?
Come on. What's wrong with you?
While there are those who are donating their money to feed the poor, cold-hearted people scheming how to eradicate people-in-need.

Besides, the flu does not seem to affect the homeless, otherwise wouldn't they all be dead from catching germs? But germs are what build immunity system.
Geez, I'm "Drones to Surveil the Poor."
Let's turn the drones on the .0001% criminals who are ruining society.
