For some years I’ve been sounding the alarm about criminals and terrorists using small unmanned aerial vehicles – so-called “drones” – as weapons, in one way or another. Some of my readers didn’t see it that way, but I was fairly sure we’d see it sooner or later.
A report from Mexico suggests that the drug cartels there are now using UAV’s in precisely that way.
More evidence has surfaced to indicate the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) is using drones armed with C4 explosives to attack its enemies.
A citizens’ militia group in Tepalcatepec, Michoacán, reports finding two drones inside an armored car that cartel hitmen had abandoned after an attempted raid on the city, which borders Jalisco, on July 25.
The C4 was packed with ball bearings to serve as shrapnel in Tupperware-like containers that were equipped with a remote detonation system and duct-taped to the drones, militia members explained. The drones were found in a cardboard box that was soaked in blood, indicating to the militia members that whoever was intending to fly the drones was injured before they could be launched.
. . .
In late April, the Attorney General’s Office reported that drones bearing C4 that were to be used by the CJNG to attack rival members of Santa Rosa de Lima Cartel in Guanajuato were discovered in Puebla.

OK, next question. If the cartels in Mexico have now graduated to “drone bombs”, how long will it take for Antifa/BLM to deploy them against police during riots? And how long will it take for inner-city gangs such as the Crips, Bloods, Latin Kings and others to do the same against both the police and each other?
