WISCONSIN BANS FORCED HUMAN RFID CHIPPING



Snippet:
Civil libertarians cheered yesterday upon news that Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle signed a law making it a crime to require an individual to be implanted with a microchip. Activists and authors Katherine Albrecht and Liz McIntyre joined the celebration, predicting this move will spell trouble for the VeriChip Corporation, maker of the VeriChip human microchip implant.

The VeriChip is a glass encapsulated Radio Frequency Identification tag that is injected into the flesh to uniquely number and identify people. The tag can be read silently and invisibly by radio waves from up to a foot or more away, right through clothing. The highly controversial device is also being marketed as a way to access secure areas, link to medical records, and serve as a payment device when associated with a credit card.

"We're not even aware of anyone attempting to forcibly implant microchips into people," says Albrecht. "That lawmakers felt this legislation was necessary indicates a growing concern that the company's product could pose a serious threat to the public down the road."

Aside from marijuana smokers and other dangerous criminals, I don't see many people getting chipped against their will. The more likely scenario, I think, is that people will clamor to have themselves and their children implanted with tracking/ID chips to protect them from terrorists and sexual predators. The current VeriChip model requires that a scanner be placed within a foot of the chipped person. This will not due. This stuff won't be ready for prime time until it makes tagged humans as trackable as cell phones.
