There we go then... great idea. Everyone hates those subhumans even more than political prisoners ehh.. terrorists.. umm.. wait...what?! O_o
I feel like poorly impersonating satirical stylings of Laird and Carl.
Ministry of Truth reports.
Ministers are planning to implant "machine-readable" microchips under the skin of thousands of offenders as part of an expansion of the electronic tagging scheme that would create more space in British jails.
<Damn criminals are breading out of control there! Thank god for IBM and genetics.. turns out those nazis were good for something after all besides legacy of advanced weapons platforms. It's a trifle really, but think of all the free space in jails for the real criminals!>
Amid concerns about the security of existing tagging systems and prison overcrowding, the Ministry of Justice is investigating the use of satellite and radio-wave technology to monitor criminals.
<Ministry of Love informs proles of the next stage in NWO agenda.>
But, instead of being contained in bracelets worn around the ankle, the tiny chips would be surgically inserted under the skin of offenders in the community, to help enforce home curfews. The radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, as long as two grains of rice, are able to carry scanable personal information about individuals, including their identities, address and offending record.
<That's so clever ain't it? Two grains of rice under the skin and we know who the bad guys are. They should make them release deadly toxin in to the bloodstream in case of tampering.. Just to be on the safe side>
The tags, labelled "spychips" by privacy campaigners, are already used around the world to keep track of dogs, cats, cattle and airport luggage, but there is no record of the technology being used to monitor offenders in the community. The chips are also being considered as a method of helping to keep order within prisons.
<If it works out well, hopefully it will help us keep order within wider community too. If it's good enough for cattle it's good enough for me>
A senior Ministry of Justice official last night confirmed that the department hoped to go even further, by extending the geographical range of the internal chips through a link-up with satellite-tracking similar to the system used to trace stolen vehicles.
<Property has to be locatable globally, else what's the point?>
"All the options are on the table, and this is one we would like to pursue," the source added.
<"All options are on the table" a favorite aphorism of Bush and Chaney when talking about nuclear pre-emptive strikes and other insane hare brained scheemes..if I am not mistaken.>
The move is in line with a proposal from Ken Jones, the president of the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo), that electronic chips should be surgically implanted into convicted pedophiles and sex offenders in order to track them more easily. Global Positioning System (GPS) technology is seen as the favored method of monitoring such offenders to prevent them going near "forbidden" zones such as primary schools.
<The forbidden zones will be designated by "Red Zone" signs (in red color) around the perimeters of said zones, In case color blind, illiterate offenders encroaching past the "Yellow Zone" there will be a alarm system installed to warn the children of nearby predator and the imminent danger facing them (while in that particular "Safe Zone") For other concerned citizens>
"We have wanted to take advantage of this technology for several years, because it seems a sensible solution to the problems we are facing in this area," a senior minister said last night. "We have looked at it and gone back to it and worried about the practicalities and the ethics, but when you look at the challenges facing the criminal justice system, it's time has come."
<It reads just like script from a sci-fi movie!>
The Government has been forced to review sentencing policy amid serious overcrowding in the nation's jails, after the prison population soared from 60,000 in 1997 to 80,000 today. The crisis meant the number of prisoners held in police cells rose 13-fold last year, with police stations housing offenders more than 60,000 times in 2007, up from 4,617 the previous year. The UK has the highest prison population per capita in western Europe, and the Government is planning for an extra 20,000 places at a cost of Â£3.8bn â€“ including three gigantic new "superjails"
<Surgically inserted location tracking implants for prisoners in super-jails.. Yup.. It's almost like a script from a movie "Fortress" (1993)>
"In the near future (2017), the U.S. is a fascist country that limits one child per couple. Our leads, played by Christopher Lambert (â€The Point Menâ€) and Loryn Locklin as a married couple, are sneaking out of the country because Locklinâ€™s character is pregnant with their second child
Of course the whole one-child gimmick is nothing more than a necessary plot point to send the Brennicks to a futuristic prison as punishment. (Lambertâ€™s John gets â€” get this â€” 30-something years for his â€œcrimeâ€!) The prison is privately run by the Evil Men-Tel Corporation and is called the Fortress, featuring such giddy (and gory) devices as "intestinators" (deadly obedience devices implanted in prisoners' bodies) and a torturous "Mind Wipe Chamber."
It's kind of funny in a strange way. Few more years and people will be lining up to be implanted.. I know personally few people who like the idea, they don't even need the "50% off retail when purchased with RFID MasterCard" propaganda.. they are ready to barcode them selves right at this very moment. :-(
It will be the same story as with barcodes, credit cards and surveillance cameras.
Little by little it will work in to society and will become norm.
The new generation of ID implants holds a sizable paragraph of information and your precise location will be recorded (within meters) anywhere on the globe all the time. Privacy â€“ the very concept of privacy â€“ becomes an anachronism.
So much for that conspiracy theory.
Edit: From bible.
And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by [the means of] those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
Rev 13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
Rev 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
Rev 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Rev 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.
