How Orwellian

Story from The Register on GPS tracking of parolees. Apparently three convicts are getting GPS-enabled ankle bracelets to monitor their movements. Normally I wouldn't have any issue with this, and as a father of two, the thought crossed my mind that it would be nice to track the kids if necessary (kidnapping, getting lost in the woods, illicit house party :)). Ultimately though, it's uncomfortable to think of any organization, worse yet our government, monitoring your every move and waking sound.
