Relax, border hawks…Virtual Fence 2.0 is on the way!

It’s back! Virtual fence 2.0–now with 57 towers–is bigger than ever! Excited?

I’m not, especially since I’m not sure that they’ve ironed out the kinks yet. When they 86’d the original Boeing project, they thought it would take three years to fix it.

Software glitches aside, there are inherent problems in the whole virtual fence concept. As a supplement to an actual physical barrier that spots breaches in the fence and people who come through, the concept makes a lot of sense. On its own, I’m not sure it’s worth much. It’s like having an alarm system on your house but no locks on the doors. As I mentioned here, I’ve never quite been sure why somebody in a ghillie suit with a .270 couldn’t shut down the entire operation.
