Considering "Prisons Without Walls"

The Atlantic magazine's September issue features a thought-provoking article called "Prisons Without Walls,"  which imagines a society where individuals convicted of crimes exist under constant electronic surveillance in lieu of imprisonment.  The article provides an in-depth look at a tracking device called the BI ExacuTrack AT, the impact on those who wear it, and its increasing use, and potential appeal, to criminal justice agencies as an alternative to incarceration.
