What the farking hell has gone wrong in America ("land Of The Free" ha ha)
Senior government officials in the U.S. Department of Homeland Oppression (DHS) has expressed great interest in a bracelet that would serve as a stun device or possibly interrogation device, similar to that of police Tasers. Lamperd Less Lethal the makers of electric shock devices to the world's less savoury governments has this promotional video. The DHS would have all passengers wear these bracelets.
The bracelet would become an airline boarding pass, it would contain personal information about the traveler (the USA demands some 100 pieces of personal info from European governments about every traveler to the USA). It would be able to monitor the whereabouts of each passenger and most sinsiter of all the law enforcement agencies could shock the wearer on command, completely immobilizing them for several minutes. One wonder how long it would be before it was used on a toddler having a tantrum on an aircraft, or a passenger making a legitimate complaint about something.
so, wvery airline passenger would be tracked by a government GPS, containing personal, private and confidential information, and give the government the ability to remotely administer punishment for any imagined infraction or dissent. Watch the video and you will see the company's proud boast that the bracelet can completely immobilize the wearer for several minutes.
DHS official in the Science and Technology Directorate, Paul S. Ruwaldt wrote, on U.S. Department of Homeland Security headed paper from the office at the William J Hughes Technical Center. to the inventor whom he had previously met with, Ruwaldt wrote, “To make it clear, we [the federal government] are interested in . . . the immobilizing security bracelet, and look forward to receiving a written proposal.”
The letterhead, in case you were wondering, is from a U.S. Department of Homeland Security office at the William J. Hughes Technical Center at the Atlantic City International Airport, or the Federal Aviation Administration headquarters.
In another part of the letter, Mr. Ruwaldt confirmed, “In addition, it is conceivable to envision a use to improve air security, on passenger planes.”
Not only could it be used as a physical restraining device, but also as a method of interrogation, this fact was also mention by Mr. Ruwaldt, a fact that should send shiver down the spine of every American I should think because it indicates the right to torture mindset of those in the US`DHS. For the last ten years the concept of the right to torture your nations perceived enemies and dissenters has slowly been creeping into to more and more levels of government in this "christian nation", it takes my breath way.
Last year my wife and I won a holiday for a family of four to Disney in Florida, the first thing we had ever won in a charity draw, but we gave the holiday away due to my horror at US airport security behavior. Here in Europe we have watched in amazement at the sheep like surrender of civil rights of US travelers. My wife has a pelvis full of metal plates and screws as well as two plates in her skull and the thought of her distress at the possible treatment she would receive at the hands of legalised sexual molesters you call the TSA was too much to tolerate - But THIS latest bit of crazy from a state security apparatus that is already well down the road to nation-wide oppression makes those concerns look like nothing !
How long before the USA wakes up to its slow trip down the road that 1930s Germany took?
