The Dobbs Wire: Shackles!

From William Dobbs and the Dobbs Wire, a look at the use of electronic monitoring:

What about “electronic monitoring”?   More and more individuals including many with a sex offense history are required to wear the special equipment for this type of state surveillance.  Anyone who runs afoul of Big Brother could be looking at prison time–that’s why James Kilgore urged calling the monitoring equipment “shackles” at a recent New York conference.  Kilgore has deep knowledge and personal experience with electronic monitoring, have a look at his latest essay and learn about a new campaign, Challenging E-Carceration.  –Bill Dobbs, The Dobbs Wire

Read James Kilgore’s essay at the Open Society Foundations.
