GPS will eliminate domestic terrorism and drug trafficking
What if terrorists planned an orchestrated attack on ten major cities in America in a horrible event that would dwarf the significance of 9/11? If the technology were available, I think most people would favor putting cameras and GPS devices everywhere.
Think about it. What if immigrants and international visitors were required to buy a cheap GPS device that would be worn at all times while they were in the country? What if we had, for several weeks prior to the event, a map of the whereabouts of all the hijackers in the 9/11 terrorist attacks? We may not have been able to prevent the first bombing, but it would have been possible to isolate the three other planes that crashed killing thousands of people. It would also have been possible to trace their steps backward to find other terrorists who may have cooperated with them.
There are, in fact, cell phone recordings of people who died on Flight 93. However, GPS would have brought this to a higher level.
In the same way, GPS devices planted on known terrorists could map out vast networks of terrorist training cells worldwide. Using satellite technology these terrorists in training could be pinpointed and eliminated by Special Forces.
GPS can also eliminate drug trafficking. Think about this scenario. An FBI agent is able to implant a small device about the size of a computer chip on several drug dealers or their vehicles without their knowledge. After a few months, a vast network of drug trafficking is mapped out on a computer. The FBI sees the dealers of larger volumes and where drugs are entering the country.
