It was recently reported that the Department of Homeland Security has expressed interest in a "safety bracelet" for air travelers that would include personal information and would not only track the wearer but also be capable of remotely delivering a taser-like shock. Fox's News' Megyn Kelly talked with terrorism expert Neil Livingstone, who downplayed the reports. "This is kind of an exaggerated story," he stated. "I don't think there's going to be a shock element on it. That's going too far." However, Livingstone, who has a history of making extreme claims about the threats posed by terrorists, saw nothing wrong with the radio-tracking aspect. "Flying is not a right, it is a privilege," he stated. Livingstone also suggested that there might be a growing market for such devices, saying, "We may see, actually, these kinds of devices put on felons in order to get parole" This video is from Fox's America's Newsroom, broadcast July 11, 2008.
