The pace of technological advancement is now quickening to the point where the gap between science fiction and reality is being greatly reduced. Philip K. Dick explored the concept of PreCrime 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. The problem is that it can’t be called fiction if it’s actually happening; and among the vast array of surveillance and Big Brother intrusion nothing will likely affect the average person as much as the concept of PreCrime taking hold in modern policing. And in Arizona, mental health PreCrime systems are searching for people “near the breaking point.”
