Holy Super Secret Database, Batman!

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico's attorney general said on Monday he had had a microchip inserted under the skin of one of his arms to give him access to a new crime database and also enable him to be traced if he is ever abducted. Attorney General Rafael Macedo said a number of his staff had also been fitted with chips which will give them exclusive and secure access to a national, computerized database for crime investigators that went live on Monday.

Great plan, Robin! Let's make sure the evil crime overlords don't find out about our ... wait. Oops. Dammit! (said in a Kelso voice)

I wonder if the embedded chip actually has to be attached to a COMPLETE living body to be effective?
