Anytime I think of someone wearing ankle monitoring devices I think of Martha Stewart and Lindsay Lohan.
This is probably because there always seemed to be a lot of media attention for these women when they were on parole.
Even though wearing an ankle monitor seems kind of cumbersome, I think it would be much better than being in prison. Having the freedom to be in your own home would be way better than being confined in a prison setting.
What seems sad to me is that many times they continue to push the boundaries when they are wearing the ankle monitor and still seem to get in trouble.
