    Default Chuck Schumer to unveil Avonte's Law, to put tracking devices on autistic kids

    U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer wants to outfit autistic kids with tracking devices.

    Schumer (D-N.Y.) is planning to unveil "Avonte's Law" on Sunday, a day after 14-year-old Avonte Oquendo was laid to rest. The autistic teen disappeared from his school Oct. 4. His remains were found Jan. 16.

    The senator wants to expand an existing voluntary program for people suffering with Alzheimer's to include autistic children.

    Schumer first raised the idea in November when the autistic teen from Queens was still missing.

    The tracking devices could be attached to wristwatches, affixed to ankle bracelets, clipped on belts, or woven into shoelaces.

    "The program would be completely voluntary for parents and run by local law enforcement," a release from Schumer's office said.

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    Wait. Can't parents already voluntarily track their kids? Why do the need a law to do it?
