I have problem with this to a degree. The on site visitation is to replace seeing the person in person. Many you might think so what they are criminals there to be punished. The problem is it opens the door further loss of rights of all citizens. Some recent examples include DNA swabs if your arrested even for something minor. Strip searches at air ports. Drones going up to monitor us citizens. Seizure of all electronic communications without court orders. Some of you might say hey I have nothing to hide, so let them do that. After all they the good guys. Same good guys that lied about Agent Orange for over 30 years. Same guys that lied and cheated and let Desert Storm veterans die and created propaganda and cover up stories. Remember if you keep letting them slide with this stuff then in 20 years when one your family members stands up for their rights and suddenly disappears arrested on some trumped up charge. For example transporting felony bought kerosene then it's your fault for letting it get so bad. Sounds crazy but the problem is lately common citizens have no rights and this is just another step in that direction.
