This needs to also be interpreted through the lens of https://xkcd.com/1211/.

In other words: we now live in a world in which trained police dinosaurs hunt down robotic drones. This is reality, and it is awesome.

(H/T Charles Stross via http://www.antipope.org/charlie/blog-static/2016/02/maneuvers-in-the-dark.html for the insight.)
Attack eagles are training to become part of the Dutch National Police anti-drone arsenal
