In a shocking revelation, homeless advocates in Manchester, New Hampshire report an unsettling wave of high-tech drone attacks. An unidentified drone operator has been maliciously dropping objects, including eggs, popsicles, and feces, on the city's homeless population.
Dam Wright, a homeless advocate, voiced his concern over these alarming attacks that have persisted for months.
“We would keep seeing other items dropped from the sky, and it's become a regular thing, especially in areas where homeless people tend to congregate,” Wright explained. Though there haven't been reports of injuries, the incidents are clearly distressing.
Manchester Police confirmed their observations, having spotted a drone closing in on a group of homeless individuals last Wednesday.
Wright fears the potential for escalation, stating, “This is somebody who is deliberately targeting people with high technology, and sooner or later, they're going to drop something heavy, and it's going to hurt somebody.”
Wright's emotions ran high as he condemned the unknown perpetrator, labeling their actions as heartlessly evil.
“The people out on the streets really have it bad enough as it is without being under constant attack, let alone a high-tech attack. Whoever has the time, energy, and resources to do something like this is really a sick individual,” Wright emphasized.
For those affected, such as Revan Bellino, a member of the homeless community, the attacks add to their daily challenges.
“It's certainly disheartening. A lot of people are just trying to stay alive, let alone deal with extra things,” Bellino lamented.
With tensions reportedly rising, Manchester police have initiated a full-scale investigation to unmask the individual behind these drone harassments.
