    Yeah, we're talking about spying on children. Ya think maybe there's a good chance if they're not tracked they'll rob the local 7-11?

    That's too bad. You should probably also refrain from making assumptions about people. Thus far your arguments have been ad hominem and appeal to emotion.

    Yeah, whatever. It's not like the crime can be eradicated. And it's not like this GPS thing is going to do any good. All that would happen if such gadgets became commonplace is that the criminal would strip the kid and throw the clothes out the window and drive off. It would only be effective if the parent knew the kid was snatched in time to get a location before the device was abandoned.

    Better if the parent paid more direct attention to their kid.

    Maybe a light charge as well for behavior modification purposes.
    Thank you

    The same way your Politburo spied on its own citizens.

    It is possible. It is also possible that they will try to sneak out with their 18 year old boyfriend to have sex at the age of 13. It is also possible that they will go joy riding in some strangers car that they stole. It is also possible that they will try to skip school. It is also possible that they will do many things that they are not suppose to do.

    Such a device can be used for more than just the pedophile/kidnapping that has been discussed for the most part in this thread.

    Let me ask you a question. What do you think of kids having cell phones?

    Easy.

    They read diaries, they install character recorders on their computers, the track their movements with GPS, they eavesdrop on their telephone calls, they read their mail.

    Just because it's the parents job to monitor what their little darling is doing doesn't mean it's not spying.
