Spread the power evenly throughout the citizens, instead of awarding some organization power over everyone. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Once you have absolute power, you are a god, and everyone else is consumable item subjects, to do whatever you bid.

In addition it is conceivable to envision a use to improve air security, on passenger planes.

wow , more crimes against humanity will be committed by USA
Uh, to remind you. These measures are having to be considered (and I hope they are rejected!) not because the U.S. population are being treated like animals. It is rather because of what the terrorist "animals" you seem to be supporting have done.

It is this mindset which allowed for the sweeping loss of constitutional rights post-9/11.

Rather then spend a long time typing it all out, I will link to a .pdf file which states it more clearly and much more concisely then I am able to.
This is the .pdf file, and this is the site from which it originates.

I honestly can not imagine the majority of people going against this if it was put into place. Sure people might grumble a little bit, but then they'll just do what they're told and put it on just to board the plane.
Some agency wants to know what everyone is doing all the time and the majority of people roll over and take it.
It happens when people think, "I'm not doing anything wrong so what does it matter?"

So many things wrong here..
What about pregnant women?
What about elderly?
What about people with heart problems?
What about children?
I am sure a shock to a pregnant lady that immobilizes her for several minutes is quite safe to the unborn child. Surely electrical currant knows where to stop so it doesn't hurt the child. And as for the older population, just look at tasers, I could see a LOT of people having heart attacks and such after being shocked. Is this product safe for children? I mean, surely the misbehaving child deserves to be shocked unconscious.
