Seriously? More "news" of quality

Check this report out: ... rd-police/

The headline says "2-km up in the sky no place to fly drones"

The story says:
"A pilot got a scare in the air over Abbotsford this afternoon after spotting a drone nearly two kilometers up in the air."

and then includes a tweet from the police who said:

"I took a complaint of a drone flying at 2000 feet which was seen by pilot at that altitude"

Seriously... 2,000 feet = 2Km?

The yanks sure do have trouble with the metric system don't they -- or is this just another example of the media trying to exagerate *everything* that is to do with drones?
