From the WashingtonTimes.com:
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 TaserÂ®. According to this promotional video found at the Lamperd Less Lethal website, the bracelet would be worn by all airline passengers.
This bracelet would:
â€¢ take the place of an airline boarding pass
â€¢ contain personal information about the traveler
â€¢ be able to monitor the whereabouts of each passenger and his/her luggage
â€¢ shock the wearer on command, completely immobilizing him/her for several minutes
The Electronic ID Bracelet, as itâ€™s referred to as, would be worn by every traveler â€œuntil they disembark the flight at their destination.â€ Yes, you read that correctly. Every airline passenger would be tracked by a government-funded GPS, containing personal, private and confidential information, and that it would shock the customer worse than an electronic dog collar if he/she got out of line?
