    Default Homeland Security Looking Into Stun-Bracelets For Airline Passengers

    Okay, I'm all for security but this is nuts:

    http://www.theaviationnation.com/?p=...ion=share-this

    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 Taser®. According to this promotional video found at the Lamperd Less Lethal website, the bracelet would be worn by all airline passengers.

    This bracelet would:

    • take the place of an airline boarding pass

    • contain personal information about the traveler

    • be able to monitor the whereabouts of each passenger and his/her luggage

    • shock the wearer on command, completely immobilizing him/her for several minutes
    Terrorism is a complex issue and that makes counter-terrorism an even tougher issue. I'll save you guys a long rant about doctrine and security and boil it down to this: To fight terrorism you have to be smart. This is not smart.

    DHS should look into the thousands of security holes at airports instead of inflicting people who aren't terrorists with an very dumb idea.

    I bet 4000 Quatloos on the new-comer.

    I wonder if this would turn into a million different lawsuits. Who comes up with these ideas?

    Damn straight. Dwight would have gotten them and Jim would have gotten him to wear it.

    The idea of zapping a teacher when they say something stupid has a lot of appeal. I just can't the batteries lasting very long.

    I'm not against them in principle, just on airplanes.

    I wish they forced the gas bags in my various classes to wear them this last semester.

    I'd like 'em for the slow walkers in my high school. Granted, they'd be over the floor, but still not impairing my route and possibly making me late to class like they usually would

    The day this is implemented is the day the day the terrorists have officially won. Further evidence of America's slide toward neo-fascism. Yippie.

    That is a major lawsuit waiting to happen, as soon as someone gets stunned accidently.

    I think your government should start tasing people who start lawsuits.

    I was just thinking the same thing. This is really a bad idea.
