Reply To: How Big Money Stymies S.O. Reform



This is why we need a constitutional amendment to get money out of politics. Since there’s such a huge industry for these products, companies will continue to lobby lawmakers to push for more and more monitoring. I can already see politicians using the popular prison reform movement to push GPS monitoring as an alternative to incarceration. Voters who don’t know about the problems with GPS monitors will applaud these steps, and the companies that manufacture and license the ankle bracelets will rake in the cash, further bilking tax payers of billions of dollars.
