    That's fairly cool. Everyone knows pulling people over is just a money grab though. This is an assault on my freedom. And so on and so forth.

    I don't think libertarians mind tracking people in the act of a crime or with a warrant.

    Re: Cool new Police Tech

    I am curious how they stick, especially in bad weather. Magnets can't be a guaranteed stick with all the plastic and glass on a car. Whatever, I am sure someone will sue for damages to their car from one of these.

    Isn't it cheaper to just shoot out the tires?

    Doesn't look like very far based on the video.


    I think that the idea is great, but I also think it will be fairly easy to beat too with this news and video getting out to the public. All somebody has to do is stop and look at the back of their vehicle after the cops have backed down and pull the device off and they're home free again.

    Also, based on that video I think the "thud" that it makes when it hits the car would be pretty noticeable.
