    Only criminals will be that stupid to shoot at trigger happy cops in full gear. The one statistic we can trust, that most criminals are stupid.
    Cops are humans too. They need to eat, sleep, socialize, shop for groceries, etc. There are so many attack vectors to pick from that are much better, have a high success rate and can bring the living fear in cops and their families. A team of 5 to 20 people could do so much damage in a short period of time when lead and trained correctly. So it's very good that most criminals are stupid.

    This article points out how vulnerable single point failures are. Such as a central place to get updates. A solution for open source at least is the source code is shared to many trusted sources and they compile it and if one of them is not the same as the other ones the update app on the phone will refuse to download it. Distributed update verification. The only single point of failure will be the source code itself and since it's public and many talented people keep an eye on the source code changes. It would be very difficult to add something malicious to it without getting detected.

    I have seen some groups have a no change rule for critical software. As in auto updates are forbidden. You compile from verified good source code. Test it to the max then everyone use it and it stays static. Compartmentalization and independent cells are also commonly used. Staying safe is an exhausting process of always keeping up to date on the latest OPSEC. It's the classic cat and mouse game. I've seen some promising work using neural nets in encryption software. For instance neural net starts off with certain goals in mind and is locked to a specific group of people. They neural net in that group evolves in a unique way so each group have a unique encryption protocol that keeps on changing within that group. Much harder to hit a moving target that keeps on changing form.
    Another way I've seen is using a special torrent client that use a random chosen file and that file is used to communicate and the file changes from for example one movie to another movie that is currently popular. It looks a normal torrent swarm sharing a files.
    Those aren't even the sneaky and very clever ways I've seen. I bet some of these clever people could cure cancer if they wanted to.

    This is Fing infuriating! Let me vent and leave me alone.

    Wonder if the favorite hanging tree of the people in that city used to use to give out punishment when the law refuse to is still alive?
    Sooner or later the people will have had enough and put all cops on the hunting list. If I remember correctly two cops were shot in their car not so long ago. That's only the start.
    Imagine the neighborhood torching a cop's home and no one will say they didn't see or hear anything while their jacket still smelled of smoke. That would be such wonderful old age justice. Since the cops don't protect the people, only protect themselves, why should the people protect the cops? In my eyes the cops don't do their job and lost their usefulness. Most people will know by now to never call the cops because someone will end up dead or seriously beaten up. Like a couple celebrating in a hotel. If this video doesn't make you fumingly angry there's something wrong with you!

    Why is no one in the comments pointing out the obvious?! Those cops violating a child is a possible pedophile. Those cops should be investigated for a pattern to get their hands on children to molest.

    Are you claiming people pay to see sexually explicit images?! I've never paid for such content if you exclude the divorce cost.

    If you're really that paranoid, which you rightfully should be, than there's a laser gun that detects cameras and shoot a strong laser at the camera sensor chip, destroying it in the progress. It's fully automated and can be put on a roof or on tactical positions to cover your whole property. Have to mention they can get confused by eyes and shoot at eyes too if you mess with the default settings.
    The fun thing is the default settings also targets pilots eyes in helicopters. Not sure why though but I'm sure there's a legitimate reason behind it. Police always try to bend the rules and lie when they break them. I'm sure it have something to do with that.
    For drones specifically you can set up frequency jammers. Drones fly in to your property but they don't fly out unless the drone have go-to-home when signal lost function but you can prevent that too by blocking GPS too.
    So technology do exist to protect yourself. You just need to get off your lazy ass and install it.
    You can make the frequency jammer smart too by only activating the jamming when the drone is inside the jamming range which will make it too late for the drone operator to turn back. I've got a fine collection of drones. Even without the controller they sell for good money. If the drone operator even tries to step a foot onto my property I have a shotgun loaded and ready. Non-lethal. That's enough to get them to back off.
