[D] Should conferences have a policy for papers that clearly have harmful applications?

This paper I saw today on “inferring crowd density from a moving drone camera especially when perspective effects are strong” will appear in IROS, and it seems like it cannot possibly be used for good or even other related problems. I have also seen similar papers for mass surveillance with drones in the proceedings of a few top-tier CV conferences, and I’m sure there are many similar cases that you all have seen.

Should these conferences be held accountable for publishing papers with inevitably harmful applications?
