Due Process R.I.P

Posted by rantingkraut on January 18, 2007

With the launch of super ASBOS, Blair’s pet project of abolishing due process now seems complete. There is one detail that has received little attention though:

America is … considering “more sophisticated” monitoring techniques, including a trial of “radio frequency identification chips” for the mentally ill.”(Source)

If things go the way they usually do, they will have those chips for the mentally ill first, for some criminals next, for all criminals thereafter … and finally for all. And why do we meet this idea for US legislation in an article on British civil liberties erosion? Pure coincidence I presume.
