   dnaInfo (Jan 11) - "NYPD Eyeing Drones to Monitor Crowds":

     Police Commissioner Ray Kelly revealed Thursday.
     Kelly said the eyes in the sky -- which have worried civil rights
     activists -- could prove useful when sizing-up demonstrations,
     adding to an NYPD arsenal that already includes 3,000 cameras and
