RFID tracking armbands forced on all residents near California music festival

(NaturalNews) Local residents living within a one-mile radius of the venue for the popular Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, which takes place annually in Indio, California, got an advanced preview of the emerging American police state this year. According to a recent report by the Los Angeles Times (LAT), the Coachella's use of RFID (radio-frequency identification) wristbands to track attendees has been extended beyond just ticket holders to residents living around the Empire Polo Field where the festival takes place, even though forcing these tracking chips on the public is against the law.

Security for Coachella seems to get ramped up just a little bit more every year, and this was especially true this year as the festival began around the same time as the occurrence of the Boston Marathon false flag event. Reports indicate that local police now rove the premises of Coachella with intimidating attack dogs, and force individuals to submit to invasive searches and TSA-style pat downs. But these and other ridiculous security theater measures are now being used on people not attending Coachella, but who merely live in the vicinity of the festival.

"No one can so much as get within a mile of the Empire Polo Field, where Coachella is held, without wearing one," writes Todd Martens for LAT, referring to the RFID wristbands that were originally employed as a deterrent for ticket counterfeiters. "Local residents, whose homes surround the polo field, also have to wear one just to get to their houses ... (and) homeowners must also register their cars."

But are these liberty-crushing protocols actually required? Not according to the law, they aren't. But because so few people understand and take responsibility for their right to privacy, for instance, or their right to travel freely without obstruction, such authoritarian mandates proceed unchecked. Like with the TSA, the wristbands are touted as a way to improve safety and security at Coachella, so the vast majority of people who attend the event, as well as those who live around it, gleefully submit to such measures without protest.

"Police check points will vary from one quarter mile to one mile outside of the festival perimeter," explains the Coachella website about its so-called requirements. "You cannot pass through the police vehicle checkpoints without your wristband properly applied on your wrist."

Police vehicle checkpoints, huh? It would be interesting to conduct a survey to see how many Coachella attendees are aware of the fact that police vehicle checkpoints are actually illegal according to Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Even worse, one has to also wonder how many of these same individuals are aware of the fact that the mass deployment of illegal police vehicle checkpoints were a prelude to the rise of the Nazi tyranny and mass murder machine.

"It's not clear by whom, or by what authority, nearby residents or their guests and visitors could be 'required' to wear devices each of which transmit a unique tracking ID number any time it is requested by private parties," explains PapersPlease.org. "Will we see controls and RFID person and vehicle tracking requirements like this next year on Patriots Day for everyone who lives, works, shops, visits, attends political meetings or religious services, or passes through the area within one mile of the Boston Marathon route?

It may seem like a relatively harmless safety measure to some, but mandatory RFID wristbands and illegal police vehicle checkpoints are gradually paving the way to complete and total police state tyranny. If the American people do not stand up now to oppose this growing police state machine, it will eventually squelch all our freedoms in every facet of life, not just at occasional music festivals.
