Reaction to being implanted with a tracker without consent

Postby Galloism » Thu May 28, 2009 9:12 pm

From the other NSG forum on Jolt:

So, this is a thread to discuss what your reaction would be to finding out that you or your children have been implanted (by the government, for the claimed purpose of reducing crime) with some sort of tracking device (24/7 monitoring), without your knowledge or consent. Would you be mad about it, or would you be ok with it?

The Parkus Empire: Being serious on NSG is like wearing a suit to a nude beach.
New Kereptica: Since power is changed energy over time, an increase in power would mean, in this case, an increase in energy. As energy is equivalent to mass and the density of the government is static, the volume of the government must increase.

If it were me, I'd Stab A Bitch In The Face With Bullets.

If it were 'my' 'child', I'd not support the government tracking of anyone, but what does their relation to me matter? If they were informed and gave consent, that's their (admittedly bad, but that's their problem) choice.

As I said in the other thread, I'd be livid about my rights being violated like that, and would sue the government (I'm sure I wouldn't be the only one).

I'd find it, tear it out, and toss it into a fire after putting it into an old microwave that was about to die anyway.

My first reaction is "Kill them all, let the revolutionary kangaroo courts sort them out!". But maybe that's not the most practical thing...

There's no government I'd trust with that kind of tracking ability.

On the other hand, there's no government I know that manages to be ahead of criminals and hackers when it comes to electronic technology, so I wouldn't be too freaked out. I'm sure some 14 year old would already have written an Ipod application that would jam the tracking signal or something.

Don't give the government that much credit.

I'm sure an 8 year old could do it.

I'd plant it on someone else after being seriously pissed.

I'm assuming we can dig this thing out with like a knife.

Only those with something to hide fear this. Crime must not be tolerated on any level. The death sentence should be the punishment for any and all crime no matter how small someone thinks it is. Once this is the excepted norm crime would diminish.

I'd remove it and mail it to the White House (or equivalent head of state location, depending on where I was) with a tube of personal lubricant. Then I'd move, change my name, give up cell phones, and pay cash for everything for the rest of my life.

I would rip it he fuck out and go to prison and try to go the way of Gandhian resistance if Iexpected it would work. If society was fucked up to the point that would not longer work, it'd be rebellion time. I'm a half-decent shot and could expect to at least go out in a blaze of glory.

Send whatever evidence I have of this implant to every TV station, every newspaper and all the opposition parties, then see a lawyer about pressing charges and suing people, then see a doctor about getting the damn thing taken out. Doctor last, so I can have its removal and existence documented.
