The ultimate manifestation will be when law enforcement works the way it did in the Max Headroom series.
In the Max Headroom media network-controlled future, law enforcement is heavily based on electronic surveillance
, signal intelligence
(i.e. wire and data taps), statistical probability
If your profile matched you could be arrested and punished for committing a crime (no more trials or evidence needed in that future scenario) even if you were not
the person who committed it. Because your profile had sufficient correlation to establish you were the type that "likely would" commit such a crime - or one very similar - if given sufficient time.
It's the old "judge them for who they are
for what they do
" mindset so popular with religious zealots, petty tyrants, and political opportunists throughout human history. Max Headroom just dressed it out in shiny new Info Age apparel.
