Red Herring – The Tracker Hacker


  • Crime Rate is at an all-time low due to strict surveillance by the government
  • Citizens are tracked through two means:
    • Internal chips implanted at birth that track their location at all times
    • Cameras with facial recognition are tracking all citizens
  • Many citizens are angry at the current system and want their privacy back
