    Washington Times - Politics, Breaking News, US and World News - "Want some torture with your peanuts?" by Aviation Security

    Just when you thought you’ve heard it all...

    A senior government official with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has expressed great interest in a so-called safety bracelet that would serve as a stun device, similar to that of a police TaserĀ®. According to this promotional video found at the Lamperd Less Lethal, Inc. website, the bracelet would be worn by all airline passengers (video also shown below).

    This bracelet would:

    • Take the place of an airline boarding pass

    • Contain personal information about the traveler

    • Be able to monitor the whereabouts of each passenger and his/her luggage

    • Shock the wearer on command, completely immobilizing him/her for several minutes

    The Electronic ID Bracelet, as it’s referred to, would be worn by every traveler “until they disembark the flight at their destination.” Yes, you read that correctly. Every airline passenger would be tracked by a government-funded GPS, containing personal, private and confidential information, and would shock the customer worse than an electronic dog collar if the passenger got out of line.

    Sealybobo ... I removed a portion of the article you posted. Articles cannot be posted in their entirety.

    Yeah, Ravi already touched on this. Only she proposed that the bracelets be armed with stun devices so anyone who gets outta line can be brought under control.

    Assuming these bracelets could not be slipped off, it's a great idea.
    If I were a trouble maker, I would rather be shocked than have my neck broken by angry mob of passengers! :eusa_angel:

    I think they should have a C4 charge. Doesn't take much. Fuck up, get blown up. You'll never screw up again.:evil:

    Fear makes for stupid people and stupider ideas. Imagine the complexity and cost.

    You say that in jest, yet your minions would probably say hell yeah... I wonder how many jews said things the like before they were rounded up and slaughtered... goes to show that when you think like a little frightened domesticated sheep, you deserve to get hauled off to slaughter...
