The pace of technological advancement is quickening to the point where the gap between science fiction and reality is being greatly reduced. Philip K. Dick explored the concept of pre-crime in his short story “The Minority Report” in 1956, but it wasn’t until Steven Spielberg offered it on the big screen as Minority Report in 2002 that the audience got a true look at a potential day-to-day existence under corporate and government data management and control.

Even mainstream media has started to compare emerging police technologies to science fiction. The problem is that it can’t be called fiction if it’s actually happening. Hence the Miami Herald’s headline, “Not science fiction: Miami wants to predict when and where crime will occur.”

Miami, Florida has already made its high-tech police state presence felt by being the first to gain FAA permission to employ drones for policing. This was later reined in just a bit to qualify them to be used only for surveillance after getting a search warrant, and where there is a perceived imminent danger (Source). Nevertheless, for the average person, pre-crime technologies have the potential to be far more invasive (and difficult to rein in) than drones.

Pre-crime Internet systems already continuously scour and collect data for potentially incriminating patterns. And, as you’ll read below, these systems are trickling down to America from war zones overseas.
