GPS for trash – not Children
Every day we hear about another missing child or a child’s body has been found murdered, victim of yet another abduction and rape. A great percentage of these crimes are committed by sex offenders, and most of them are registered. Some of them even wearing monitoring devices while they commit their heinous crimes over and over. In fact some of these crimes happening right under the nose of law enforcement but still, it happens. We have been told that these people need help, and they are not to blame for the things that they do. They need treatment, and pity, because they had a rough childhood. So they are handed light sentences and released back into Society to rape and murder our children again and again.
I have been advocating GPS for children for some time now, and though some interest has been expressed by some people, generally there is a misguided fear of losing privacy, or government exploitation. Then we have GPS tracking devices put on trash to see where it goes, and have multiple agencies follow the devices in real time. Excuse me? We have rapists, murderers, sexual offenders, and all kinds of other criminals out there wandering the streets free to do what they want, re-offending often two or three time before they are sentenced appropriately. And we are putting GPS on trash. We have children being stolen from their beds to be raped and murdered, children abducted off the streets on their way home from school, from the park, and we are more concerned with tracking trash and watching it real time. When did trash become more important than our children? Why is there not more energy being put into protecting our most vulnerable, instead of watching garbage travel around the globe? I guess nothing will change until a politician loses a child to one of these monsters. Maybe then it will be important enough to do something about it.
