There are so many drones in the news these days that I feel like I'm living in a sci-fi film. 

The makers of a new drone claim it can fire pepper-spray bullets and has blinding lasers attached. And they're selling it to companies to control protesting workers... It makes me think someone watched Terminator and thought it sounded like a good idea.

Experts urge 'control' drones like these are a tool of torture and must be banned internationally. I wholeheartedly agree.
