Hot off of yesterday's heated committee hearing on a proposal to regulate SPD's use of unmanned drones, Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn has announced that, after a discussion with Police Chief John Diaz, the legislation won't be necessary -- because the city is scrapping the program and returning the drones.

Here's McGinn's official statement:

"Today I spoke with Seattle Police Chief John Diaz and we agreed that it was time to end the unmanned aerial vehicle program, so that SPD can focus its resources on public safety and the community building work that is the department's priority. The vehicles will be returned to the vendor."
