New Seattle Police drone: Could it be Charlene?

To whet your appetite for tonight’s unveiling of the new Seattle police drone, here’s a video demonstrating a paramilitary drone called “Charlene” that’s used for urban reconnaissance and other duties.

The video is actually a promo for the game “Call of Duty: Black Ops 2,” but it shows how effective a drone could be for remotely enforcing the proper usage of Seattle sharrows and bike boxes. With drones on patrol, punks in bandannas will surely think twice before trashing a Starbucks in this town.

There is some salty language in the video, similar to what civil libertarians are muttering at the prospect of Seattle’s finest filming people with an “unmanned aerial vehicle.”

It looks like the future’s going to be fun!
