GPS Bullets

Saw a similar article on a mobile news app for a local station the other day, and kept expecting to read about it here. Since it hasn't popped up yet, here it is for you guys:

http://news.cnet.com/8301-17852_3-57...during-chases/


Seems this is a new idea to end pursuits. First, what do you guys think about the application?

Second, the article I read locally focused on Iowa. Since we've a number of Iowa cops here, I was wondering what you guys have heard about this. It's always different on the ground level - like when our new computer system went live. Press releases made it sound like the second coming, and that it would revolutionize the jail. Of course, the actual application is much different, and while we gained functionality in a lot of areas - we lost a lot in others.

Anyway, I figured that since this is all over the media - it actually sucks in practical use. It'll cost a lot, won't work more than 33% of the time when deployed, and will eventually fall by the wayside after street cops prove it won't work. The company will go out of business, and local/state agencies will be left with a lot of money spent with no results.

You know, like virtually every new whiz-bang gizmo that comes down the road.

Or, is this one viable for real world applications? Because it sounds kinda cool.

Ah - missed that. But, since I don't work patrol, I didn't click on the link.

Russ, please lock or delete this nice little repost.
