We have already covered the dangers of Pokémon Go in a previous article, but already we are seeing just how powerful a tool this Application can be. Police in New Hampshire are beginning to try and Lure fugitives to locations in attempt to make arrests:
The Guardian Reports:
Police in New Hampshire’s largest city are using Pokémon Go in an attempt to lure fugitives into their clutches.
A post on the Manchester police department Facebook page announced that officers recently detected one of the more rare Pokemon characters – a Charizard – in the booking area of police headquarters.
The post invited those whose names appeared on a list linked to the post to be “one of the lucky ones” to come and capture the creature. The list included the names of the more than 500 fugitives on the department’s wanted persons roundup.
Although in this case it is being used to potentially capture criminals (allegedly) it shows just how powerful a tool it can be, in the wrong hands which it undoubtedly is Pokémon Go could be partly responsible for why your child never returns from their walk home from school!
