"Microchipped school uniforms notify parents when kids skip school"


news.yahoo.com

In Vitoria da Conquista, Brazil, 20,000 grade school students have recently started wearing uniforms embedded with GPS chips similar to those used in pet trackers. The chips automatically send parents a text message as soon as their children enter the school grounds, or if their children are late for more than 20 minutes.

Well, I was right. Me and thousands of other people. They're putting chips in uniforms to "monitor" student whereabouts.
I predict next that they will be putting these under the skin of newborn babies as soon as they come out the womb. (Being very, very serious here; you know how far these people go)

It may be in 10 years. It may be in 50. It may happen before I turn 18. These chips could have their benefits, but they also could be a turn for the worst.

If your parenting is sooooo bad that you can't trust your kid not to skip school, and you need to put a chip in their clothes, then something is wrong.

This is just "something little" in my opinion to see how people react. Once parents praise this idea because they suck at being adults capable of taking care of a kid, then they'll amp it up by putting the chips in 100 other places.

What do you think?

I heard Alan Watt talking about this just today.

Precondition us and them, and they won't object at all to a small chip under the skin.

All to protect the children, of course...

This sort of thing only works when the kids dont know theyre chipped.

Now they know so it's just another expensive waste of time given all the ways they can be manipulated, destroyed, planted for pranks, etc...

How do they wash the shirts without frying the hardware? Interesting.

Ok, the problem with your theory about chipping newborns is this-All current subcutaneous devices are passively powered. They can't communicate with GPS actively because they don't have dedicated power source. These shirts do, this is why I'm a little puzzled. How do you wash something that has a battery in it?

What is to prevent kids from going to school, changing their clothes in the restroom, putting their uniform in their locker so that GPS chip shows them being on campus- and then hauling butt? Kids already do that sort of thing all the time!

My kids would not stand for it because I rule the roost and they know where the knives are to dig out any chips

Well again it was just a prediction, but I doubt that the people creating and funding these things will run into
problems about powering. They'll figure something out. (Maybe)

Indeed that's the plan. Like everything else, it's the "boiling frog" scenario. By a little here, and a little there, in a generation or two everyone will be thoroughly tagged, chipped, watched, labeled, catalogued, and generally "owned."

But you know what the worst part of all this is? That it's basically a commercial enterprise--someone creating a unique niche and filling it. It's not political or ideological at all--at least not primarily. It appeals to ideologues--sure; but that's not where the ideas are coming from. Somehow that just makes the entire undertaking even creepier and scarier to me....

Kids are smart all they need to do is find the chip and plant it on a kid who never wags school

To far to fast, never are the social,private, and tyrannic implication ever reviewed or even discussed before it is unleashed on the public.

A child skipping school has little to do with bad parenting. If anything, this makes it harder for children to lie to parents about skipping school, and thus discourages them from skipping in the first place. Perhaps not such a bad thing? Provided it only sends information to the parents and not an unauthorized third party, I don't find this to be very problematic.

As for rising fears that they will begin to chip newborns, yes, probably. If you don't like it, you can try moving to a less Orwellian country. For example, I doubt Afghanistan or Ghana is going to start enforcing a chipping program anytime soon. Of course, there is something to be said about a diminished standard of living, but if you value freedom and privacy perhaps moving to an under developed nation is in your best interest even if it means giving up many first-world luxuries.

Micro chipping is definitely in our future, and though it is unfortunate, it is where technology is taking us. Allowing tracking of every person makes it much easier to keep order and monitor citizens; furthermore, it may greatly reduce crime rates considering how easy it will be to get caught. However, where there is a will, there is a way, and I don't doubt for a second that professional criminals will find ways to manipulate or remove their chips. It'll be like gun control; if all guns are outlawed, criminals will purchase them through black markets while civilians are left defenseless.

I hope they don't take this whole GPS Shirt thing seriously. Remember, these shirts only show where the clothing is at, not the child. They could have one of their friends take their clothes to school. Or they could purchase two uniforms and rip out the tracker in one of them. There are more traditional and better ways for parents to get their kids to go to school.

I wont even allow my kids to be fingerprinted for those stupid little ID Cards they say are for if your kid goes missing. Thats just one more way for big brother to track you by getting your fingerprints in the system. Chips in school uniforms? Not my kids, not going to happen.Put them in if you like. I own a few hammers....

Wow, really? You sound like you're all for the government tracking every move you make, every purchase and even your blood pressure. I guess thats your right. They can keep their chips, I'll keep my privacy and freedoms.

It is illegal to advocate illegal acts on ATS. Very well. So let me just say, I wish it was legal for children to take hammers to these chips so as to smash them completely.

Is it wrong that I have seriously considered chip-ing my future children?


I don't trust the world out there, but I'd like my kids to enjoy a sense of freedom. I'd do my best to never let on that I knew where they were, but in case of kidnappings, running away, lost in the woods scenarios I would love to be able to find their blinking blue dot like I would my iphone. Twisted, but at least if my kid was kidnapped I could go to the police and show them the blinking blue dot. "See, my kid is right there...Go and get them please!"

Not On My Watch!!!!! I will never allow my kids in any uniform to begin with, and microchip them!!!! They can step down without any form of pensions or tax paid benefits.
