Essentially the argument appears to be that protests can be monitored using national intelligence means and assets so long as it is groups or crowds
being observed, and not individuals.

The AP continues:

The investigation reviewed seven flights by the aircraft in Minnesota,
Arizona, California and Washington, D.C. If found that while the sensors on the aircraft could show buildings and vehicles, they “were not capable of
identifying any distinguishing features of people” and they did not have
the capability of collecting information from cellphones or radios.

I think that if the observations were done by National Guard assets, or by
other assets directly assisting the National Guard, in support of the
National Guard mission to restore peace ordered by State government, it's
fine. You have to have situational awareness.

But if the observations were conducted by other organizations which had no
specifically ordered role to support the National Guard, it's illegal.
