Quoted: The Chicago Police Department has ramped up the use of its "predictive analysis" system to identify people it believes are likely to commit crimes. These people, who are placed on a "heat list," are visited by police officers who tell them that they are considered pre-criminals by CPD, and are warned that if they do commit any crimes, they are likely to be caught.
Does it sound familiar? There was a movie made with just this type of system. It was called the Minority report (2002) and it was based on the idea that people can be arrested BEFORE they committed a crime. Is Chicago using a system that allows them to racially profile people legally? To me it sounds like a clear violation of a person’s rights but hey after all its Chicago and they can give a damn less about civil rights.
