Electronic Shackles and Telephone Communications
The article is in Hebrew, but the security story is funny in any language.
It's about a prisoner who was forced to wear an electronic shackle to monitor that he did not violate his home arrest. The shackle is pretty simple: if the suspect leaves the defined detention area, the electronic shackle signals through the telephone line to the local police.
How do you defeat a system such as this? Just stop paying your phone bill and wait for the phone company to shut off service.
