Cattle, Carbon, and Sex Offenders

by ericknight

It turns out that twelve of Queensland’s most dangerous sex offenders will now be required to wear a GPS tracker system.

The device works by sounding an alarm when the offender wanders in to no-go zones. Various locations are picked: parks, kids playgrounds, and tunnels. I can’t really pretend to be an expert in these things, but I’m suspicious of how well the thing works in practice.

That’s not the only thing I’m suspicious of. I found myself work through a whole list of things on ABC The Drum last Thursday night with Cate Faehrmann and Waleed Aly. If you missed it you can watch it here
