Issue #1... Criminals want to steal your identity as part of their 'get away plan?' All they have to do is drag you into a dark alley and yank your chip out and stick theirs in its place. (Ewww, I know. I'm not thinking they'll be overly concerned about cleanliness and germs during the process either.) Then while the cops are tracking them (now you) down, they are on a fast boat to China or some such. And good luck explaining what happened, to the cops... they'll just accuse you of self-mutilation to try to get rid of your chip to avoid your punishment.
Issue #2... As some stated, people may get a medical chip b/c they're convinced it's for the best. Goody, maybe that part is true... HOWEVER, once that chip is in there, Katie-bar-the-door & the sky's the limit: Can you say "Wireless Software Update???" There is just No Telling what they will add onto it in the future. (Opens up a whole new playing field for Executive Orders, lol.)
Translation: Don't Take the Bait / Don't Get the Chip
