Top cop's wishlist: microchipped crooks


www.abc.net.au

South Australia's police commissioner says some people should be microchipped as a crime prevention measure.

Commissioner Mal Hyde made the remark while answering a question at an international Australian Crime Prevention Council forum in Adelaide.

Mr Hyde said widespread CCTV had once been considered an unlikely concept because of privacy concerns.

He said community attitudes usually changed in line with perceived threats.

I can't imagine that it's a surprise to anyone here that this sort of thing is planned. That it is openly being spoken of does come as a bit of a surprise to me though.

Australia of course is similar to the United Kingdom in that it doesn't have any constitutionally guaranteed freedoms, nor any bill of rights so like the UK is often faster to adopt draconian laws than the United States (eg gun control, random searches of citizens and the widespread use of surveillance cameras).

Top People's wishlist = Less Police Brutality and Corruption.

Anyways, scientific studies have proven that RFID chip implants can cause cancerous growths in the tissue surrounding the chip.

Therefore chipping criminals is an added punishment.

They are given cancer as a punishment. This is not acceptable.

First they wanted to chip your animals incase *they were lost stolen*

Second they wanted to chip your criminals *because they are dangerous*

Third they wanted to chip your old people *because they need to be monitered and not get lost*

Fourth they wanted to chip your kids *so they are not kidnapped*

Fifth they wanted to chip you *so you don't pose a threat*

Of course chipping the bad people is to keep YOU safe!!!!!!

Sure sure

While not as permanent we use ankle bracelets for the same purpose when putting some criminals under house arrest or while on certain degrees of probation.

Understandably in certain individuals; i.e. pedophiles or sex offenders who have to register this might actually be a cheaper way to keep track of them than registries and the multitudes of individuals to check-up on them.

After all it can be removed and implanted with only a minor snip here or an n injection there.

When one becomes a predator he/she ceded a certain number of rights after all.

I think I've read talk about chipping child molestors and not too many would argue that but we must be careful. Read what would be written into the law. Like the previous poster says what next?? We all know the more they get the more they want.

In a way is this not already happening with everyone as the vast majority of people now have a mobile phone, most have GPS enabled.

I have one friend who tweets from almost every location, specifying where she is, using 4square.

I know these chips are for other specific people, it just got me thinking about how people already give away a lot of info very freely

I would just force them to carry cellphones.

It would be much easier and realistic. Plus cellphones can record audio and video.

Maybe I was not very clear, I was not suggesting that criminals be issued with cell phones for tracking purposes, I was thinking tangentially how most people are already being tracked, some knowingly, and revelling in it, while others are less aware of the fact that their location can be pinpointed accurately.

The fact that criminals are being considered for microchipping scares the hell out of me.

I was suggesting it. We don't need chips. The cellphone does everything a chip does and more.

The cellphone is a better alternative.

My cousin is a big shot at OnStar. He says they can find anybody who has it installed in their car. I asked him if the feds have taken over yet and he just laughed.

But of course cell phones can be left behind, swapped etc. But the average person in the street has their cell phone on them 24/7, and rarely leaves it behind.

This is one reason that in US and Europe you *have to* buy a phone on contract, because of the paper trail involved. Luckily I usually get SIMs in countries where I can just buy a pay as you go, or even better - a free SIM.
