“This branch of the tree is that branch of the tree, which as you can see is pretty close to our house,” said Pullman resident John Thielbahr. “And when we looked at the drone through our binoculars, this part of the drone looked like it might be a camera.”
Thielbahr wants the Pullman City Council to declare Pullman a no drone zone. On December 13th, Thielbahr and his wife were terrified when they saw a drone hovering just beyond their back porch over Jefferson Elementary.
“We felt violated,” said Thielbahr. We felt our privacy had been violated. We didn’t know if he was looking for something to steal, if he was looking to harm somebody or if it was just an innocent situation playing with his toy.”
