Some things need to be registered.
And as I said before, what I proposed in the OP is even far more moderate than what already exists in many other democratic jurisdictions worldwide. We should not fanatically interpret the right to privacy as being absolute.
It has to be balanced with public safety too.
From the article:
'Though it makes sense that traffickers would use prepaid phones to do their business, Latonero says they use them in a slightly different way than drug dealers. Traffickers can use cell phones to set up meetings with clients, but they can also use a smart phone's GPS signal to make sure the people they're exploiting don't try to run away.
'"They can keep tabs on those they're exploiting with the various apps that tell them where their [workers] are," Latonero says. "There's a control element to it."'
