Make sure you get the Bluetooth RFID chip so your GPS enabled cellular can provide accurate tracking. It will be a real time saver across the board.

Unfortunately, this is one area where we in the UK are about 13 years ahead of the US, as the UK National DNA Database was established in 1995.

Before 2001, the police dna samples were destroyed if the people concerned were acquitted, or charges were not proceeded with.

However, in 2001 the law was changed to remove this requirement, and again in 2004 so that dna samples could be taken from anyone arrested for a recordable offence and detained in a police station. These are retained indefinitely.

The UK government's Orwellian argument for this is that 'any intrusion on personal privacy is proportional to the benefits gained by the police'.

So guys, you are now just at the beginning of a slippery slope.....

Wow...J. Edgar Hoover meets Will Rogers. Too funny.

Good thing I'm not the arrest-able type.

I said that too prior to driving through Daytona Beach Shores. Apparently they got my 6' 250 pound Scot-Irish ass confused with a 5'6" Hispanic named Rodriguez who happened to be using a "similar" social security number. I got pulled over for a burnt out headlight in a rental and surprise!

I lost my patience after watching them futz with their computers for two hours trying to make the connection. Critical thinking skills were NOT a job requirement.

To me, that is the greatest danger, not some fantastic Iluminati conspiracy controlling black helicopters, aliens, the drug cartel and the Queen.

It's the DEA making a drug bust at the wrong address and shooting a young mother. Or a cop whose wife f**ked him over and so he carries his rage to work with him. Dumbasses and pettiness combined with great discretionary power will eventually screw us up more than Al Qaeda & Dubyuh combined.

I'm from the government and I'm here to help you. Now bend over.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
