Police in Miami-Dada County have a new tool in their arsenal: a military aerial drone that, if flown low enough, can actually see into people’s houses.

Sgt. Andrew Cohen assured members of the press that would not be the device’s main use, but civil liberties advocates were still wary of the claim. Police said they were still awaiting approval from the Federal Aviation Administration to use the drone.
