Using RFID to decrease security
Mexico's Attorney General either is not telling the truth or has lost his sense of self-preservation [via Declan McCullagh's Politech list, emphasis added].
Mexico's attorney general said on Monday he had had a microchip inserted under the skin of one of his arms to give him access to a new crime database and also enable him to be traced if he is ever abducted....
"It's an area of high security, it's necessary that we have access to this, through a chip, which what's more is unremovable," Macedo told reporters.
Mexico averaged more than four kidnappings a day over a recent decade. He might as well have issued a direct challenge.
