This is a bad thing. It’s a liability for thefts from injury and it takes jobs away from potential couriers/mailmen/mail women.

Let me guess: They picked a really rich, white area full of gated communities. I would like to see this attempted in Detroit, lol.

Why are we allowing the companies that steal our data to fly drones around picking up everyone’s data. This is dangerous in more ways than simple drone crashes. Population tracking and such. Gross.
