Texas. The San Antonio school district's website was hacked over the weekend to protest its policy requiring students to wear microchip-embedded cards tracking their every move on campus. A teenager purportedly working with the hacker group Anonymous said in an online statement that he took the site down because the Northside school district "is stripping away the privacy of students in your school." All students at John Jay High School and Anson Jones Middle School are required to carry identification cards embedded with a microchip. They are tracked by the dozens of electronic readers installed in the schools' ceiling panels.

So all those people advocating gun rights on this site, they'll be protesting forcing people to carry RFID location bugs, right? Because this clearly is way more intrusive and violating of the U.S. Constitution than background checks and waiting periods for guns. In fact, the state can force students to where location trackers, then the state can force guns to have GPS trackers, and we wouldn't want that.

I say Andrea Hernandez should sue the state of Texas to make it illegal for Texas to ever tax her, as it clearly has violated the rights to use public resources that she and her parents paid for with tax dollars.

Perhaps Andrea Hernandez should bring an assault rifle to school and shoot any such tracking cards forced on her. After all, that's considered a right in Texas!

Hmmm... sounds like Disneyland.
Maybe they should have just given them Android phones instead.

Well they put microchips on dogs and livestock-not humans. I just find this distressing-it is training kids to be non thinking sheeple right from a young age.

Good for the girl and her father. I am surprised those freedom loving fellas don't see anything wrong with this.
