Are the Thought Police coming for us?

If you are a member of that suspect group known as "the public", probably so.

The latest developments, which reveal efforts to "collect, process, or retain information on" members of "the public," came to light through an internal DHS document obtained under open-government laws by the Electronic Privacy Information Center. DHS calls its "pre-crime" system Future Attribute Screening Technology, or FAST.

But I'm sure we'll be told it's OK, because if we haven't done anything we'll have nothing to hide.
