Congress Cracks Down On Anonymous Prepaid Cellphones

• Gizmodo
Prepaid cellphones have long been used by unsavory criminal types, which is understandable! They're anonymous, inexpensive, and did I mention anonymous already? But now that we know the alleged Times Square bomber one, regulators have gotten out their regulatin' stick.

A new bill was introduced yesterday by senators Chuck Schumer and John Cornyn that would require prepaid cellphone purchasers to show ID at the time of sale. Their information would then be registered with phone companies, permitting law enforcement to keep tabs on them in case of malfeasance.

Oh here we fucking go again. Now I'm a suspected criminal because I own a tracfone. News flash, retards: criminals know how to forge identification. The innocent are punished, the mostly-not-really-criminal are unharmed, and as usual the guilty and incredibly dangerous are running the show.

To the Government we are guilty before a crime is committed.
