The Watchers Who’s watching the watchers as they creep about behind the lines of executive orders. Shadows behind laws which back bite our nation as no one sees the puppet master. I am a firm believer in the human ability to produce positive changes in life. Yet I understand some in our society have chosen for themselves to remain outside of society through committing violent acts. Everyday we ask ourselves are we or our love ones safe? For some people it is as simple as placing a small RFID electronic microchip under the skin of convicted violent criminals. Applied Digital Solutionsis considered one of the lending producers of this technology. The VeriChip, can be implanted inside of the skin for tracking purposes. As I have mentioned this topic to the average people during the 90’s I got laughed at or seen by some as madman. This same truth can be seen to an existent even in 2008. The most common responses have been, “oh! You can’t do that to people, or the constitution protects us from that.” The question arises, are we living in a modern day “1984’? Or is there a real civil concern for the safety of Americans. In 2007 Tim Talley a for Examiner-Enterprise News Associated Press wrote an article entitled, “House rejects microchip implants for violent criminals” where he discusses the topic of an legislative committee posing questions in Oklahoma City on the violation of constitutional civil liberties in authorizing micro-chipping convicted violent criminals. This measure was approved by the Senate. In the article it states, “The measure authorizes the micro-chipping for people convicted of one or more of 19 violent offenses. These people whom have served at least 85 percent of their sentence, for murder, rape and some forms of robbery or burglary. The measure would also prohibit the government from requiring microchips implants in anyone else. Some question their government’s right to violate their Fourth, Fifth and Fourteenth Constitutional amendment rights.#” For some of those of you in our society which say, “Oh! I was right, you can’t do that to people, or the constitution protects us from that I told you so.” I may question your viewpoint of prisoners considered as property of the state where they was convicted and transported or why must one pursue a Heibius Corpus in court to seek “Ones Body Back”. On September 11, 2007 a Tuesday in the late Edition of The New York Times it was reported by line by Barnaby J. Feder “Cancer Hurts Maker of Chip Implants”. Yet for some people they see the implant as a way to protect their children in a health crisis. While reading through this article it was hinted that, “VeriChip the company under Applied Digital Solutions and federal regulators ignored studies about whether the chip and process of injecting caused cancer in dogs and laboratory rodents. “ The article goes on an quotes Dr. Lawrence D. McGill, a veterinary pathologist at Animal Reference Pathology, a veterinary laboratory in Salt Lake City, who says, 'If there are any cancers from the chips, they are so rare that losing pets is far more serious”. There is a common understanding that some research involves the testing of animals to enhance human awareness of disease or to prevent disease. Katherine Albrecht, a critic of RFID chip and VeriChip says 'This kind of negative publicity spells the beginning of the end for VeriChip and their plans to chip us all like bar-coded packages of meat.' Yet we hang in the mist of a rebirthing of peoples views about the VeriChip as a security measure against terrorism.# In America this topic is argued amongst committee after committee. Everyday people ask ourselves how we can make a difference and our love ones safe from predators and identity thieves. Or are we just blown away by the thought of someone knowing our every move, but if you read world news you get a different twist. In doing the research for this subject what was striking enough is a article dated January 13, 2008 8:46 PM By Brian Brady, Whitehall Editor entitled “”Prisoners 'to be chipped like dogs’”. Brady quoted a proposal of Ken Jones the president of the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) where he says, “chips should be surgically implanted into convicted pedophiles and sex offenders in order to track them more easily. Global Positioning System (GPS) technology is seen as the favored method of monitoring such offenders to prevent them going near "forbidden" zones such as primary schools”. May I have my rights back is all that comes to mind for me because who’s to say how many officers across the world share Jones values about protecting and serving. There are so many mixed views about these implants, and there shall be mixed viewpoints for years to come. This topic is not one that will be kept under the media radar. I am still a firm believer in the human ability to produce positive changes in their lives. When people have choices and are still open in correction through rehabilitation that positive change happens despite the issue. Weather us as a society accepts that person’s manner of change remains to be seen. Michael Kanellos a staff writer for CNETnews.com reported, “Applied Digital reportedly sold 7,000 of the electronic tags. An estimated 1,000 have been inserted in humans, mostly outside the United States, with no harmful physical side effects.” # There are many divided views about this implant across the board and as a parent I have to wonder will it end, for myself I’d vote against this form of technology being used in humans, but every day we use a form of this tracking system through our credit cards, ID cards, and Products we buy without question our lack of choice in wanting private information being transmitted to a company in order to gain a upper hand. The micro-chip implants are voluntary as of now. But as this technology grows there will be no need for a voluntary system because everything we will come to use will have a chip of some kind to prevent thief and to track products. Companies like Wal-Mart have invested in RFID chip in order to track shipments in their warehouses. Everyday People, business and law enforcement have looked into having this technology at their disposal. In a radio interview by Alex Jones radio show, Jack Schmidig a Police Chief of Bergen County, New Jersey received the chip after one of his friends Nicholas Minicucci a founder of The Molly Foundation had the thought of Verichip being implanted in the arm for medical reasons. The hospital would no longer have to ask you questions they could just scan your arm for all your information.# As I continued in my research I’ve found that for five years the RFID micro-chip has hidden under the realm of computer technology. An average person is trying to just keep up with knowing the basics in their television changing to digital.
