US children tagged like criminals

By Leon J Williams

In the US state of Texas a school enforces a strict rule that its students must wear an electronic tag so that the school can know where their students are at all times on school property. This has been in force since the start of the 2012 academic year.

The school in question is a Northside Independent School District (NISD) in San Antonio which hopes to expand the program right across their 112 schools.

This operates in the same way as criminals on parole with the police tracking peoples every move.

One student (Andrea Hernandez) who refused to wear this device was kicked out of the school, she took the school to court and of course the US authorities told her to wear the device or find another school.

Looks like civil liberties in the US take another beating, eroding day by day.

    My son had to wear an ID electronic tag his last 2 years of high school. And yeah, it was in Texas. He and the other students felt like cattle. They electronically attach tags to the ears of cows so they can be quickly found and sorted, when it comes time to sell them. It was just another step to becoming less human and more of a number in the system.
