Better Living Through Electronic Monitoring Bracelets

The increased use of electronic monitoring bracelets provides a hi-tech solution for law enforcement personnel who seek alternatives to the traditional American answers of incarceration, taser, and the British third way of continuous CCTV surveillance. Here are three stories involving the use of electronic monitoring bracelets I've read in the last day or so:

1. for illegal immigrant mothers in Mississippi
Catch, tag, and release IS more humane than catch, detain, torture, deport.

2. for sex offenders in Korea
Hey, who's gonna complain!

3. for kids who don't attend school in Texas
As if you couldn't track them by their twitter or cellphone.
