resolve tracking device shold not be allowed because of the safety issue it poses to society
imabench

Pro

Human tracking devices are almost entirely issued by court orders to monitor criminals or suspects to make sure they comply with the rules set by the court. If for example a criminal is sentenced to house arrest after being convicted for vandalizing neighbor's houses or drunk driving, then a tracking device showing his location could help law enforcement see if such a person is breaking the terms of their agreement settled in the Courts.

Sex offenders for example would be banned from going within a certain distance of schools or playgrounds, and human tracking devices could make sure the sex offender does not go within a certain distance of the schools to protect children.

Human tracking devices could even be used to fight gang activities because if such devices could secretly be placed on the person or the persons vehicle, it could reveal the locations of places where gang activities illegally function.

I invite the con to provide evidence of how these devices actually poses a safety issue to society

Con

Due to the fact that it is invading privacy such as the smart phone incident how smart phones can show others where are u etc so with the information in the wrong hands something bad might happen and also what are we now pets were we need someone to know where we at the time and moment and how about if a hacker can poses that information by hacking in the tracking device they will be scared because it contains everything about them
imabench

Pro

Smart phones have location services which show people where you are, but such services can easily be turned off under settings in the phone.... As for the "hackers" the tracking devices dont contain a persons entire personal information. A typical police issued tracking device is simply a transmitter and a receiver that gives off a signal that is monitored to give the police the person's whereabouts and a receiver so that if they do violate a boundary they can be alerted that they are doing so. Human tracking devices dont contain personal information about the person being tracked...

Also my arguments regarding how the tracking devices monitor criminals, sex offenders, terrorists, etc from doing harm to society has not been addressed by the Con...

I would like to now introduce another argument about why these devices help society. Recently many parents have put tracking devices on their children and pets so that if either were to be kidnapped, go missing, get lost, etc. then they could be found with the help pf these tracking devices.

Reasons for voting decision: goldman -1 for "prima facie" as an argument; pretending that you've won is not an argument. Also, use grammar. Also, make a decent argument.
