I can only imagine what it would take to power and attenuate such equipment, particularly in crowded places. The potential cost beggars the imagination.

It won't work. It'll be tested, and by the second day the system is live, people will have found ways to circumvent and spoof it. In the end, it'll be a boondoggle and a massive waste of taxpayers' money.

From a 4th Amendment standpoint, I despise it. From a practical standpoint, I'm not worried.
