HomeTVTalk ShowsThe View Co-Hosts Debate Tracking Devices For Children Amid Etan Patz Case Being Reopened Jamey Giddens April 24, 2012 12 Comments Should parents have their children surgically implanted with tracking devices at birth? That was a recent Hot Topic on ABC Daytime's The View. The debate began amid the case of Etan Patz, the first missing child to have his face put on a milk carton, being reopened 30 years after he disappeared. Moderator Whoopi Goldberg pointed out that it's already commonplace for people to insert tracking devices in their pets and all four women seemed to agree it wouldn't be a bad idea to do so with kids!

Log in to Reply giogio April 24, 2012 Whoopi is right about if we do this for our pets we should be able to track down our kids. I remember when that boy was taken. I was a kid myself, and in those days alot of kids were “kidnapped”. Which makes something like that on your mind a horrible way to live. To have it disolve when they are 18?? Why? If I want to find my kid at 17 I’d still want to find him at 18 or older if he has disappeared.

They are getting quickly growing cancers around the site of the implant THAT ARE KILLING THEM.

But I didnt know that the implants are killing them. Where did you hear that? I wonder why then, would they do that.

As for them causing cancer, you can find as many studies and research to say that they don’t cause cancer as those that do. Everything causes cancer in somebody. Phones cause cancer, according to some people. I just googled it and found all sorts of claims on all sides (mostly on websites I’ve never heard of before…probably with vested interests on both sides).

Why are you so worried about losing your child? Maybe, it’s bad parenting or you need to spend more time as a family? Within the next year Processor speeds will be as fast as the human brain, within the next decade people will be able to ‘upload’ or ‘copy’ their consciousness. Getting chipped is only going to allow them to track and control you. Do some research and look up Trans-humanism. Man and machine, man and beast. All for the sake of being a faster, stronger….better Human. Look at Music Videos, Movies, TV and Commercials…they are showing you what’s coming.

You just made me realize what a waste of time it is on these boards. I dont want to know people like you, That was a horrible thing to say.

I would imagine anyone with kids who worry about someone abducting them would be insulted if someone wondered if they were worried due to bad parenting. Log in to Reply TV Gord April 25, 2012 Not worth the trouble, giogio. That poster is a useless troll and a conspiracy theorist who is probably out on a day pass! I’m being insulting for our amusement because I know it doesn’t bother him/her. The aluminum hat keeps all of the unwelcome thoughts out. Log in to Reply giogio April 25, 2012 Thanks Gord – Let me know in the future when Im trying to get a troll to listen to reason. By the way, that was a hilarious way to explain, him/her/it. Log in to Reply Miry April 25, 2012 Um, say what RebeccaJ?? Please let me know where you’re getting your info from b/c that is ridic! Animals get microchips all the time (as a way to ID them if they get lost) and I haven’t heard anything about cancer from them.
