Drone Expo Draws Protesters

A speaker at a commercial drone conference in Los Angeles on Saturday was shouted down by a protest group blaming him for up to 3,000 deaths caused by Predator drones in Pakistan, the Contra Costa Times has reported.

"Nobody here is even remotely interested in using [drones] as weapons," said Austin Blue, who was targeted by some of the protesters because his family owns General Atomics, which produces the Predator drone.
