Government GPS Tracking Implants: The Good

by Joe Mueller on September 18, 2009

The other day, we looked at all the bad that government GPS tracking implants could bring about if it were adopted by a government and used with ill intent.  But that is not the only side to the implantable GPS debate – there is also much good that these devices can do.  Today, let us consider just what good could come about.

We have already clearly established that implanted GPS tracking can be extremely evil if used will ill intent, but we have spent no time discussing all the good that can come of having a world where implantable GPS tracking is possible.  The amount of good might still not compare to the amount of evil, but it is still at least worth our consideration.  If we find that the amount of good exceed the amount of evil that can be done then we should at least consider developing this type of technology.

Some of the more interesting and useful applications of this type of tracking include:

1. Catching Criminals

One of the main functions of governments is to maintain justice and to see the that the wicked are punished for their crimes.  As things stand, there is a lot that can help criminals escape prosecution – but probably the most important element that prosecutors need to do is to link a criminal to the scene of the crime.  We have made great strides at this as a civilization through the discovery of finger printing and DNA evidence, but we have not filled up all the holes in our judicial system yet.  If we could leverage a nation wide GPS tracking system that involves implanted GPS we would have a nearly flawless crime analysis tool on our hands.

The first step would be being able to track down suspects that could have potentially been involved in a crime.  Any murder of theft is bound to leave a GPS trail for the police to follow.  If the murder was a close range shooting or stabbing then all the police would need to do is pull up all the people who where at such and such location around such and such a time.  They then could evaluate each person to see if they are likely to be a suspect.

Once they have determined some potential suspects they would just have to get the real time position of the suspect using the GPS tracking device implanted in their body.  Tracking them down would then be as easy as driving to their location.  No costly stake outs.  No mistaken identities.

Even though the cost of the system as a whole would be very great, the cost saving for the police would be pretty significant.  The amount of time that it would take to identify suspects, locate them, and bring them in for questioning could all be taken care of relatively quickly, saving thousands of man hours and millions of dollars.

The number of crimes are not limited to theft and murder.  Essentially any crime that involves a location could be tracked using this type of system.  Speeding, illegal dumping, stalking, rape, kidnapping, abduction, abuse, and a whole host of other crimes could be handled in a much more precise and useful manner with the administration of a little GPS technology.

2. Improving Emergency Responses

Another huge benefit would be the improved nature of emergency response personnel.  Imagine a 911 call coming in from a small child, named Tim.  It is coming from 401 North Cumberland Lane and Tim has indicated that his mommy is laying on the floor and won’t get up and that there is a lot of smoke in the house.  Immediately, fire fighters and paramedics can be dispatched to the scene.  As they go their computers light up with information that there are 2 people in at the house.  They get a Google Map-like  satellite image of the house with small indicators as to the GPS location of each of the people inside.  They also get an elevation reading that lets them know if the people are in a downstairs or upstairs area of the home.

Armed with this information they arrive on the scene and are able to quickly enter the home and target the areas where the GPS indicated there were people in house.  A rescue is quickly achieved and the fire fighting begins in earnest.  If there was no GPS tracking implant in each of the residents the fire fighters would have to have done a thorough room by room search to make sure that there was no one else in the home – putting them at risk and increasing the amount of time that it might take to put ou the fire.

Medical emergencies would also be much easier to respond to if the paramedics had the GPS coordinates of the patient.  This is especially true when the patient is in a remote area or where there are a lot of people that might impair the paramedics vision.  Also, in transit to the patient the paramedics would have laser like instructions on how to get there and would not loose any time to wrong directions.

3. Improving Military Operations

In a military setting, troops would always know where friends are at all times and could avoid the costly and demoralizing “friendly fire” that has plagued soldiers in all modern wars.  While making use of the implantable tracking devices would require an integration of personal combat computers for each and every soldier, it is not unreasonable to assume that by the time we develop the technology to implant GPS devices in our bodies we will also have the ability to give each soldier their own combat computer.

This could translate the GPS data into helpful instructions that would give each soldier the ability to make lightning quick choices about whether their target is a friend or a foe in the most tense of situations.  It would also allow military commander to know exactly where their soldiers are at any given moment.  Captured soldiers could also be easily tracked, revealing the source of enemy prisons and detention centers.  Rescue attempts would be much easier to pull off and no men would ever be left behind.

4. Assist In Urban Planning

One of the key benefits of universal GPS tracking implants that are monitored and use by the government is that it would allow them to do a lot of civic planning and development.  They could analyze population densities and come up with plans to aid in the flow of individuals for work and for leisure.  An example of this might be a growing suburb of a massive metropolitan area.  After some analysis of the GPS data they find that the majority of people in this area use a major highway in order to head south into the city for work and for play.  They also realize that the other suburbs north also do the same thing, so there is a massive flight from the suburbs out into the city.  This causes a lot of traffic congestion and leads to a lot of pollution and stress.

The government could then step in and do one of a variety of things to solve the problem.  They could try and entice some business to relocate to a friendlier location for their employees.  A move north along the highway corridor would help reduce the overall south bound traffic and ease some of the congestion.  The government could increase the size of the highway corridor to improve speeds and accommodate more commuters.  They could improve the public transportation system to encourage more commuters to make use of this environmentally friendly, cheap, and efficient mode of transportation.

Information like this could also be used to make development decisions. If a particular region does not have the infrastructure to move ahead with a planned development project than the government can step in and intervene.  This will have a limiting affect on some types of growth, but overall I think that it would make cities better run, safer, and more “citizen friendly.”

Finally, governments could make better use of their land if they could know how it was being used by citizens.  If a park never was used or a library never frequented then governments could make the tough decisions to close these centers or to re-purpose them for a more efficient use.  In the end, I think that this would end up saving tax payers a lot of money and would make the government provide the services that the citizens need and want.

5. Increase Business and Governmental Accountability

Another important benefit of a nation-wide GPS tracking implant system is the increased accountability of business and government organizations.  For example, a government inspector is supposed to go around and inspect elevators on all the building in New York City.  Right now, there is very little accountability to make sure that they do that other than the people taking them at their word that such and such was done.  Another example might be a police officer who is tasked with patroling a particularly dangerous part of town, how are we to know he has been faithful to his duty and not just parked at a donut shop all evening?

If you introduce a GPS tracking system to the equation you come to see that there is little that these employees and government agencies can hide from the public (if the information is made publically available, which it would be under the Freedom of Information act).  They are held accountable for their actions.

Private corporations would be the same.  Imagine that some nasty industrial waste begins to show up in a natural preserve somewhere in the West.  How will the dumping party be held responsible?  Just go to the GPS tracking log and check out all the people that have gone to that area and find out what their speed was as they traveled there to tell who drove a car, who walked, etc.  Once you have that list you can interview each individual if there is more than one suspect or you could cross reference names on this list with others from a company payroll.  Either way, you will find out who did the dumping and the person they dumped for in no time at all.

How Will Our Future Look?

I don’t know about you, but I think that the future of GPS tracking implants is a little in the dark.  While this list of benefits is useful and good for society at large I just don’t think that it currently outweights the gross injustices that a government could perpetrate with this type of tracking system in place.  Citizens would have no privacy and absolutely no expectation that they would have any.  I could imagine a whole subclass of people that spurn the trackers and that are forced to live underground or in remote regions of the country in an attempt to evade the all seeing eyes of the government.

But this does not mean that all GPS implants should be avoided.  There might be a strong argument for personal GPS tracking implants, but perhaps we will visit that topic another day.

I have a dental implant which tracks me everywhere. It was put in against my will, and now I live in fear of my life, as I am being put to sleep at night and things are being done to me. My life has been turned upside down for months. I am frightened, and have moved 15 times, now I live in a shelter and it is becoming a party to the tracking implant, and controlling my life. I need help to have it removed, but no one will help me because I am being used as a guiena pig. Please contact me as to how to get this implant removed. I want to live, but I am becoming devastated. Help me please.

Hi Mary,

I am so sorry that you feel like there is a GPS tracking device implanted in one of your teeth, but I think it is safe for you to assume that this is not true at all. I know it may feel like there is, but listen to a few of these reasons that I hope will convince you that there is no tracking device in your teeth.

1. Size Issues. I know that GPS tracking chips are getting extremely small these days, but to fit inside of your tooth is just too small when you add all the other components that need to be in their to make real time tracking work.

For example, you will need either a radio transmitter or a telephone modem. While these can be small, the will not fit inside your tooth! Add to that the battery that gives the tracker the charge and you have too much electronics and not enough tooth.

2. Battery Issues. Let’s just assume for arguments sake that all those components can fit inside a tooth, how long do you think a battery that small could last? 15 minutes? There is just no way that the supposed tracker is still going to be working because there just is no way that the battery could still have a charge.

I really hope that I have explained that well and that you now believe that no tracker is installed in your teeth.

-Joe

Implants are imbedded into me right now as I speak, and I need help. I was implanted by a tracking gps, and dentist will not remove it because they have been warned that this is an experimental device implant. I am a human being not a rat, not an animal, and I am frightened out of my life. I need help to get these people off of me.
Please contact me.

Hi Joe

I don’t think that the GPS chip is in Mary’s tooth implant, but rather her stomach.

A worldwide criminal network is known to make use of RFID human implant technology in order to propagate crime. Although the ring also commits conventional crime to augment their revenue, the RFID human implant is their main source of cash. Crimes such as credit card fraud are committed (by being able to locate the victim at an ATM / card purchase); the production of internet porn videos (with the aid of Rohypnol) and housebreaking (knowing when the victim is not at home) are also common. The suspects use clubs and bars as a location for injecting these tracking devices, mostly in the stomach area.

The criminal program works to a degree. However, the implant causes some sort of radiation on the brain, making the victim aware that “something is annoying me”, but not knowing exactly what it is. A great many innocent people are thought to be infected; the number of humans implanted with this technology might be as many as 100,000 and possibly even more. The radar screen used by the suspects is very simple, at least. A laptop connected to a cellphone with modified software might be all that is required. Using this radar screen would then come close to a real-life reality video game.

As victims who actually try and find the device (under their noses) run into misfortune (collaborated accidents), the story needs to be printed in the mainstream media first, before hard evidence, the transmitter, can be collected.

Please assist in getting the thing removed / allegedly stolen from the Israeli secret service.

Hi James

Couldn’t help but notice your time stamp. ( you’re the real deal). So I think there are a lot of positive applications also, specifically and foremost in the defense of children. I appreciate your comments on radiation, this explains why it hasn’t hit the market, …yet. ALL the more, I appreciate concerns of big brother. I merely state, if the science pans out, it should be optional. What say you?

Well let me start, mary story is just like mine, currently homeless, move around alot, have kids, and the device is not in my teeth, it was implanted in several places in my body and i wonder every day saying who do they say i am, this is crazy helicopters and satellite have been in my life for 11 years. God kept showing me that something went into my body the day of my DNC, and giving me the gutt feeling it was left in my stomach, but dr’s wants me to beleive its a tumor, but the devices are now know to be fyboric and create a tremendous amount of swelling, and it’s Cancerous

Well, I not going to make myself crazy with th Big Brother System, but I can say when I person has been tagged without there consent, this is not right, They could of came clean and paid me for this experiment, but somehow they decided to implant me, with no information of the device and the possibe side affects, however i move to say, yes!! I can prove it’s here working and i been tagged, yes! james it’ in my stomach, arm, back, etc.. I feel like a walking computer, when it’s hot outside, my body tinges like pins and needles, and everyday i have to go to sleep with 3 or 4 benedryls due to the severe reations causes my to itch and my skin flames up like animal attacked me, i’m hating what was done, and need to raise the money to get it remove, the Dr, wont admit to the implantation, but God say not to worry everyone will pay for the wrong doing they have done to me, so Mary keep your head up, The Big Brother can never be God,….and any person attacking people without there consent it the biggest low life COWARD IN THE WORLD…. This too shall pass………PEOPLE PLEASE STOP TELLING LIES, THE TRACKING IS ON EARTH AND WORKING FULLEST IN HUMANS, AS THE EXPERMINENT OF THE GOVERNMENT, READ AND TAKE HEED ………….

Also, the Government, should give me a Job, I can be a spokesperson, for what they did to me, and my kids live with me so they see everything i go thru, by this implant, however, they have concerns because it’s now making me ill, and the Dr’s can’t explain what it is, and disbelief is shown when i tell them who i am, they brush me off, make money of medicade billing for visits getting no where, so now i must research….raise money …..get a stable place for me and my kids to live I PRAY THE GOVERNMENT COMES CLEAN AND HELP MAKE MYLIFE A LITTLE EASIER THEY NOW I NEED STABLITY, AND HEALTH CARE, SO IF MEDICAL SITUATIONS FAIL THEY WILL BE THE BLAME BY THE IMPLANTS IN ME…..

Hi who am I,

I wish you the best and a speedy recovery from whatever it is that is affecting you. Just the itching alone would be driving me crazy, so I hope that the doctors find exactly what is going on and find the best solution for you and your family.

Please take care of yourself.
