WI: Losing Track

[UPDATED links 3/4/18] [wisconsinwatch.org]

Losing Track by the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism explores flaws in Wisconsin’s GPS monitoring program for offenders. In 2013, the Center exposed problems including false alerts and lost signals that sent offenders to jail even when they did not violate terms of the monitoring. Full Series

    If the entire constellation system ever went down due to an attack from a foreign entity (which is very possible because it is considered a real world threat), the LEO/As would crap their pants and lose their heads w/o their ability to find RCs. At the same time, ATMs, charge machines at stores, cellphone service, etc would have problems because so much data is run from the GPS constellation today and has for years. It literally would be chaos in the streets.

    This is a good article inside the Tracking list of articles:

    Here’s a quote from that article from one of the developers of the monitoring system:
    =======
    While many view the current model for electronic monitoring as an alternative to prison that can save states money, Gable views it as chiefly a punishment driven by public animosity toward sex offenders.

    “You can start simply by the legislation that’s done,” Gable told a reporter. “You know it’s not rehabilitation, it’s a matter of punishment. If you had a public whipping of sex offenders, then you could put them on probation afterwards, the public would feel now the offender has been appropriately punished.”
