Italy mayor pledges to use drones and dirty words to enforce lockdown

ROME: An Italian mayor has pledged to use drones to shout profanities at people ignoring stay-at-home rules for the containment of the coronavirus outbreak.
“I can’t wait for it ... drones everywhere,” Cateno De Luca, mayor of the town of Messina in Sicily, said in a video message posted on Facebook.
The drones will broadcast “my voice that will say as soon as I catch you, ‘where the f*** are you going, go back home!’ This will be the voice of the drone.” Italy’s outbreak is concentrated in the north, but there is concern that contagion cases could escalate in southern regions like Sicily if people do not respect social distancing.
