Department of Pre-Crime arrives?

Sean Gonsalves, columnist for the Cape Cod Times, writes about the FBI's new focus on "anticipating and preventing" crimes instead of investigating crimes that have actually occurred. In his piece We're Not In Kansas Anymore, Gonsalves says the FBI has become like the frightening Department of Pre-Crime in the 2002 film Minority Report.

The column also mentions the ACLU's concerns about the Fusion Centers, the real-life secretive new government clearinghouses of data on all of us.
