1) link? by Veneklasen on June 9, 2008 Is there a link to this information regarding Judge Clulo?
2) Someone I know had this done to them. by softciy on May 12, 2008 This is real. Google:tooth cell phone, "Darpa Lifelog" or "Seeing through cats eyes.", "Digital Angel", "Subvocal Speech", "Carbon Nanotube radio and brain implants"
The justice system is allegedly using CIA/DEA equip like this on offenders without their knowledge-in Midland Mich.
Judge Clulo was one who secretly ordered this done to a probationer. The probationer found out, and Clulo along with a few other conspirators resigned.
The probationers own attorney was threatened to not tell his client about the implants.
So far these criminals have not been brought justice.
Because of the implant composition it will not appear under xray or normal MRI thereby making detection and removal difficult.
3) Is this Tinfoil Hat stuff? by Anonymous Citizen on September 4, 2007 Not necessarily. The technology is real, and like all tools can confer great benefits or do harm. The bill is based on a Wisconsin law that does the same thing, 2005 Public Act 482. The background on the issue and that law is ably presented by that state's Legislative Reference Bureau, here: www.legis.state.wi.us/lrb/pubs/Lb/06Lb13.pdf
"From that document: In October 2004, the
U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared a radio frequency identification (RFID) microchip for medical use in humans. The technology used by VeriChip allows a hospital with a special scanner to read a unique medical identification
code in the microchip. Medical personnel can then input that code into a computer database
and quickly locate medical records for a patient. This could save precious time during an emergency or reduce risks when treating a patient with dementia."
The document goes on to describe health, privacy and civil liberties concern.
