Schumer Pushes Law to Put Trackers on Autistic Children
BREITBART ^ | BREITBART NEWS

Posted on 01/27/2014 12:07:23 PM PST by Morgana

Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has proposed a far-reaching new law that would force taxpayers to cover the costs of placing tracking devices on autistic children after 14-year-old autistic child Avonte Oquendo was found dead last week. The tracking devices would not be implanted, but would instead be attached to watches, ankle bracelets, belts, or shoelaces. “The program would be completely voluntary for parents and run by local law enforcement,” Schumer’s office announced.

We need trackers, with data accessable to the public, for totalitarian politicians.

So if it is ‘voluntary’ then why do we need a law?

It’s a trap!

They start with something like this, and then move on.

If a parent wants a tracker, you can go buy one and get real-time tracking for $10/month.

And, yes, my younger daughters have them on their backpacks.

Hey, I gots me a big ide-er ...

How’s about we put tracking devices on POLITICIANS? Implant them into their heads, and put their daily comings and goings on the interwebz thingy .... maybe on Google Earth ... give ‘em a big 10000V zap if they ever go off the grid.

Whaddaya think, Chucky?

How about putting trackers on all members of Congress and providing historical records of their whereabouts from the day they are sworn in until the day they leave office.

Before you object to this as being invasive, I submit that the voters have a right to know the identities of individuals members of Congress are meeting with. Some members of Congress meet lobbyists outside their offices to avoid those lobbyists being logged into and out of the member’s office.

There is no perjorative to adequately characterize this filthy SWINE.

Thank you, again, New York, for saddling us with yet another mental defective. What a piece of work.

IIRC, the Income Tax is “voluntary”.

One of my friends told me recently about a tracker she had installed on the car her son uses. She can find out exactly where the car is at all times, as well as where it has been. (The son has a drug problem.)

I expect that soon conservatives or anyone else with dissenting opinions will be similarly chipped so they can be tracked and with alarms at the borders of the State of New York least anyone of them dare to enter.

Yep, same stuff.

We’ve had various problems/harassment so we just take the precautions we can. Law won’t let us send my 9 year old to school with her .380, so this is the best we can do.

Yeah, not us either. (Just kidding, I know you live in a rough neighborhood ... of the world.)

In the retirement community where my parents live, it's not unusual for Alzheimer's patients to be tagged by their family or their care facility. My father isn't, but his building is locked up 24/7.

With this technology available, I would certainly use it if I had a child who was particularly vulnerable to getting lost. In fact, I'll mention it to my friend who has a child with Down Syndrome who is a "runner." She probably already knows, but it can't hurt.

Term limits would work so much better.

To force taxpayers to foot the bill. If the parents don’t care enough to cover the costs, why should we?

In the late 1990s, Micro$loth Word didn’t have many proper nouns in its dictionary ... it offered up “schemer” and “scummier” as corrected spellings for “Schumer”.

Autistic first, seniors next, those deemed by government to have mental problems, tea party members deemed by government to be terrorists and/or racists, etc..

What Chuck E Cheez REALLY wants is tracking devices on all gun owners, Tea Party members, Oathkeepers, veterans, Christian worshippers, etc.

If the public allows tagging of autism victims then the rest won’t be far behind.
