+ - 35% Of Americans Would Wear "Electric Shock Bracelet" in Order to Fly-> 1

dryriver (1010635) writes "Infowars.com reports: 'A survey commissioned by Infowars and conducted by Harris Interactive has found that 35% of American adults would be willing to wear an electric shock bracelet in order to fly, another startling example of how many Americans are willing to give up their rights in the name of safety. The idea of mandating travelers to wear an electric shock bracelet sounds like something out of a dystopian sci-fi movie, but the proposal was seriously considered and very nearly implemented by the Department of Homeland Security back in 2008. As the linked Youtube video highlights, not only would the bracelets have been used to deliver incapacitating electric shocks to suspected terrorists, they would also have contained tracking technology to spy on the wearer."

  • What I see happening is that when/if this is implemented, some hacker figures out how to activate all the bracelets in the airport, as a protest against their use -- which the government classifies as yet another terrorist act.
