Big Brother Gives out Free Cellphones

Montclair State University will soon be providing their students with more goodies than just textbooks and debt up to their eyeballs. Students enrolled at this New Jersey college will also receive a free cellphone. The premise behind this idea is to provide safety for students by allowing them to always have a way to call for help or even a DD. There is a bit of a catch, though. Each cellphone is equipped with a GPS tracking device so at any given time school administrators can pinpoint the exact location of a student.

Sure the GPS tracking is probably more for safety, but what happens when administrators see that you spent 20 of the past 24 hours at a strip club. What say ye' commenters? Good for safety, or crossing the line of privacy?
