500 paedophiles to be tracked by satellite tags

Unlike tags now used to enforce curfews for general criminal offenders, which communicate on localised radio frequencies, the new device uses global satellite positioning technology. This will allow probation services and police to pinpoint the wearer anywhere in the UK to within three metres.

The device is capable of providing a detailed diary at the end of every day of where the user has been.

The electronic diary can be studied remotely by experts to build up a profile of the offender which will help them predict whether the person will offend again.

So, in short, we have a device that records its own position on a continuing basis and reports that to police, who then try to analyze the individuals behavior patterns to predict recidivism rates. We have an initial application to sex offenders, always an easy group to target ("SAVE THE CHILDREN!"), but applied post-release when they have served their sentence and, in theory, have their rights restored. And we have a prior program of similar nature applied, it seems, to offenses as minor as a curfew violation.

Britain has truly become a living hell. And it's only getting worse.
