UK: Just chip ’em
Security theatre at its best or just plain daft? Take your pick…
Thanks to Dave Kearns’ IdM Newsletter pointing me to an article about a Wales nursery, Nursery installs hi-tech fingerprint security system.
The school has introduced a fingerprint scanning system that allows only authorised parents and staff to access the nursery. Apparently, this is to reassure parents following the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. There are additional unspecified “video and audio systems.”
Why not just chip the kids and be done with it? Make the chips GPS-trackable and all those concerned parents and school authorities can be assured that their wee tots are safe. Better still, parents can locate ’em any time online. That’ll be handy as tots have a nasty habit of becoming teens.
