very good idea tracking devices for Congress Critters
Put cameras in the Congresscritters tracking devices so we can all watch them raking in the bribes. ?
Why do parents need a law to track their children? Or is it to get the government to pay for it?
Pretty sure there is already an app for that.
We had a senior citizen here with alzheimers...took a walk....they found him in a ditch. The sad thing...he had taken a long walk several times before. If only they had a device in his sneaks.
I think we need 24/7 audio and video on Schmuckie Schumer to see who he is colluding with.
Free, maybe. But govt. mandated is what he's advocating..I'm surprised you missed that.
You still on board?
They should put them on all the members of Congress.
Every time that bonehead Schumer opens his mouth I lose more respect for the people who continue to elect him.

|Woo hoo!! And the first 28% is in!! Thank you all very much!!|
I'm absolutely on board.
Schmuer is acting like Hitler. Will these people be sent to the gas chambers?
Why doesn’t he just put collars on them too while he’s at it?
What a moron.
Oh really? Since when has any politician been up front with any legislation?
Let me remind you of these famous words: "You can keep your health insurance....."........
From the article:
“The tracking devices could be attached to wristwatches, affixed to ankle bracelets, clipped on belts, or woven into shoelaces.”
Sounds like the devices could be hidden in almost any article of clothing, work boots, shoes, hunting vests etc.
Today’s technology combined with NSA/DHS/IRS watching everything we do via internet & credit card purchases what would stop them from planting such a tracking device into that next pair of boots you buy from Bass Pro Shop?
Maybe a little paranoid, but nothing would surprise me these days.
And let me add, how in the hell do you even begin to believe anything that the communist Chuck Schumer has to say?
Everything is a political opportunity. Isn’t that what family is for? And, if he was so autistic, WTH was he doing in a public school ?
Seniors and freely ambulating disabled people could use these devices. I went through losing a client for about three days. It was horrible, the not knowing. This client was found days later, disoriented, and a cop did the right thing by bringing him to a shelter. The employee fallout was heavy, management never did get over our group ‘allowing this to happen’, even though this was an unlocked facility. This should not be done on all school children all the time, but in today’s world, we need to think before we reflexively push away the option.
What is a ‘freebie’? I know of nothing that is free.
Exactly. Somebody is paying for it.
We should put”Tracking Devices”on Anti-American A$$H*LE$ Like”Chucky Schmucky”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The government shoulf give away goods and services for free as long as somebody thinks it’s a good idea. Have no idae what “conservative’ means these days.
Schmucky Schumer should be required to wear a polygraph so that all of us in the chattering class can call him out for what he is.
Some politicians do things like this under the guise of doing something good. And I know many politicians have no idea what they’re actually doing. Apparently Chuckie either hasn’t seen HUNGER GAMES or didn’t get it.
I would bet my left tit that this has everything to do with the maker of these tracking devices being a donor to Upchuck Schumer, and this is now payback time.
And while he’s at it, collars with their names inscribed. Thanks SMGFan.
Rancho Cotate High School sophomore Kimberly Rowley is a wrestler who has autism.
they re the new nazi party after all
I guess tattooing numbers on their wrists is so 20th century.
AT&T offers one, as do a number of other vendors. Their tracking service which uses the kids phone - less secure than something attached to clothing, but good enough for most kids, is something like $9.95 per month.
Well, at least we will know the location of Slow Joe at all times!!!
Do you know where your senator is?
After all, what is the feral government for if not to provide boondoggles for campaign contributors?
Between autism and Alzheimer's, tracking modules would really help local authorities. I'm sure if the government is involved it will cost a lot more. Garmin makes a really nice device for dogs. If you get the government involved it will only cost 5 times as much. Two words for you Obama Phone.
I am all in favor of someone with a video camera following this subhuman around 24/7.
It’s for the children, of course.
In most cases the family could share the location data with any agencies helping out. In the event of a serious problem law enforcement organizations have direct access to phone location data, as they would to the GPS tracking devices.
