    CA - Cops Use GPS To Arrest Sex Offender, Los Angeles

    http://www.nbc4.tv/news/5349104/detail.html

    YEAH!!!!!

    LOS ANGELES -- A global position monitoring program that tracks sexual offenders has resulted in an arrest.

    The arrest is the first attributed to the system, which was introduced last month in Orange County.

    Robert Dobucki was taken into custody Tuesday for an alleged parole violation after he was tracked via an electronic ankle bracelet to a grade school parking lot, a doll shop and a small amusement park for children, officials said.

    The GPS device continuously transmits digital radio signals that pinpoint locations on the earth. Eventually, 180 high-risk sex offenders in Southern California will be wearing the ankle bracelets.

    I think they're going to discover these guys violate their probation/parole 99.9% of the time.

    This is just wonderful! Got him while he was just planning out his crime.

    This might help some of the borderline cases to keep to their probation, and the ones who can't control themselves will get caught at it early.

    I personally think that every convicted sexual offender should have to wear such a device forever.

    After just looking up articles about a guy that cut off his GPS I came upon this.

    How much time would a person get for violating their probation?
