Have you got an alert set up Spam so that you are instantly notified of any old dribble reported in the press about this case?  Or are you just a regular Sun reader?

I was just scrolling through news items & saw the article.

I think the cllr raises & interesting yet controversial point.

Why not just put a gps tracker on everyone at birth and be done with it.

Indeed, why not.

No more missing people.

Apart from it’s a complete infringement of civil liberties, and means that the state could monitor your whereabouts at all times a la Big Brother I’m all for it. 
ANGER MAKES US AWARE OF INJUSTICE
We often experience anger when we are denied rights or when faced with insults, disrespect, injustice, or exploitation. Anger serves as an internal guidance system that indicates something is not quite right, that someone has treated us unjustly or unfairly. Anger helps communicate to others: “You’d better treat me fairly; otherwise, you’ll pay a high cost.” On a global level, standing up for a lack of fairness can prevent people from taking advantage of others. This type of anger can bring about positive change in society and increase the social cost of misbehaving.

A GPS bracelet, belt or necklace doesn't sound like a terrible idea to me.
Although the obvious problem is that this can be easily removed.

I have a relative who has severe dementia, she recently wandered off but thankfully was found by a relative.
The level of her disability is such that she probably wouldn't have been able to communicate her name or address had she been found by a stranger.

But I'm not sure I could approve of a mark on the forehead & right hand.

lol  tattoo...behave.


Yes, Housebound people with mobility issues are given an alarm which they wear around their neck to press if they fall. it  immediately transfers a call to a person who can talk to the injured person.  Perhaps disguised as a pierced earning? I see many babies with pierced ears in summer time on holiday!
