Last year, when two professors were awarded with the large grant of $7,500 by the PCC Foundation for the purchasing of drones, there was an expectation that more drones would be seen flying around campus, but the process has been slower than expected.
If students soon notice drones whizzing over their heads on campus, it is the result of the largest grant the PCC Foundation has awarded so far.
Originally, drones were a great idea. It provided the military with a convenient solution to both the safety of their pilots and their financial overhead. However, that convenience has its costs. Their rampant use has led to rampant civilian deaths, which in turn has led to more resentment toward the U.S.
With President Obamaâ€™s use of drone assassinations in Pakistan and Yemen, he has overstepped the bounds of the United States Constitution and garnered himself the power over life and death, more power than any one man should wield.
