Precrime 2005?

I read Wired "PC Precisely Predicts Felony" with disappointment more than anything. It's bad enough with Patriot Act but using computers to predict "profiled" crimes gets us closer to Precrime. (For those who don't watch movies, it's the basis of the movie "Minority Report." Maybe the title wasn't meant to be, but I find it very ironic. Profiling and minorities et al. Update 9:35PM: original story was written by Philip K. Dick as a short story -- I've read 1 or 2 of his books but not short stories....)

Anyway, we're taking more steps to The Police State....
