Some people in Kentucky are being ordered to wear GPS-enabled ankle bracelets if they won't self-isolate themselves.
American freedom is dead. The surveillance state is here.
What a joke.

I mean I'm doing what I can to limit exposure and whatnot but this kind of reaction scares the hell out me.What I keep thinking after all this is said and done. How many months of lockdowns can we actually bear and how willing will the government be to give back the their newfound power they hold over us? I'm a conspiracy theorist at heart so my gut tells me we may find ourselves in a perpetual state of emergency for quite a while.
Mitigating risk I fully understand but I've kept my mouth shut on a lot of the stuff I've seen here where people are completely ready for the heavy hand of the government to imprison people for breaking curfews or orders not to assemble. It just doesn't sit right with me. I was fully on board until some of the newer data came out showing an actual adjusted cfr around .66% which mind you, is still pretty high, but nothing like the plague its being treated as. Don't get me wrong I'm not going to try my odds and see what happens I'll do my part to stop the spread but something just feels...wrong.
There is a hundreds of years long history of involuntary confinement for people who refuse to quarantine themselves during outbreaks of deadly disease. And this tech has been used for ages to monitor people under house arrest. Surveillance is a worry but this isn't the harbinger the title makes it sound like.
People who refuses to self quarantine should be charge w assault, battery or manslaughter as appropriate, depending on outcom
Govt is here to protect everyone, not aid and abett public endangerment by a few egotistic and selfish idiots
Starts was my thought. I'm for more authority immediately rather than getting an avalanche all at once, with people wailing to take it all. The less we're reactive, I think, the better.
Also, why is this person being listed by initials only? Have they violated a lawful order? If so, wouldn't their information be public information? Asking for a neighbor.
