Homeland Security’s Latest Gestapo Tactic.

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on March 25th, 2008 3:11 pm by HL

Homeland Security wants to come out with a shock bracelet that they can put on your wrist, and use on you if they feel like shocking you from a distance. So like if they are watching you on a street camera, and see you doing something they don’t like they can deliver a jolt that temporarily incompacitates you. Then they can slap the cuffs on you and have you in the car before you know what’s going on. Doesn’t that sound like something that the land of the free and the home of the brave can really use?
They also want to use them on planes, give one to every passenger as they get on. Prison Planet picks up the story.

The Department of Homeland Security is pursuing the introduction of a device known as the Security Bracelet, a wearable tag that would allow authorities to inflict pain compliance on suspects from a distance, while also recommending law enforcement applications and potential use in “crowd control situations”.

Introduced ostensibly to combat airline terrorism, a creepy promo video courtesy of the patent holders Lamperd FTS exploits shocking 9/11 imagery to push the torture device as a solution to countering potential hijackers by inflicting “Electro-Muscular Disruption” and presumably giving the rest of the passengers a debilitating shock at the same time.

Watch the clip.

H.L.s Take
So if Obama becomes President, (I say ‘if” despite the fact that probably two thirds of voters will cast thier ballot for him, and the fact that he is outraising McCain by a huge margin, but this is the democrats we are talking about so it’s a big “if”) so if Obama becomes President, does all the bullshit stop. Does Homeland Security stop acting like Hitlers strorm troopers? Do we stop getting hassled to death every time we get on a plane? Do we stop having the politics of fear of another terrorist attack? (Not that our own government wasn’t behind the last one) Do we stop having the cops tasering people for no reason? or will it all just be buisness as usual?
