    Armed with high-tech software and years of crime data, Miami police believe they will soon be able to stop crimes by predicting when and where they will occur.

    It sounds a little like something out of a science fiction novel, but the department is in the process of adopting a system called HunchLab that produces maps showing small areas where specific crimes are likely to be committed during shifts. The probability program is a geographical version of “predictive policing” software, which more departments are using — even if, in the words of one supportive cop, it’s “kind of scary.”
    Similar algorithm-based programs have been credited with lowering crime rates in cities around the country, and some South Florida departments recently have adopted their own systems. In Miami’s case, the department is funding the implementation of HunchLab and other software programs with a $600,000 federal grant doled out by the Bureau of Justice Assistance to encourage smart policing tactics.

    The left will call this "profiling".
    Obama isn't the problem. The problem is an electorate that would vote a man like him into office.

    Wasn't this the basic plot of minority report?

    Yes but only for murder.

    If crime data results in focusing in non-white neighborhoods, it'll be denounced as "profiling". And if fewer crimes in those neighborhoods are solved and crime increases, it'll be denounced as discriminative policing. Damned if they do, damned if they don't!

    Many departments already kinda do this in larger cities. If you have a particular area where crime is happening, and of a certain type, you know ahead enough to add additional police to patrol those areas at that given time. To say you need a computer to tell you what you should already know is sad.

    The current Detroit Police Chief, James Craig, is pro-armed citizens. He thinks that prevents a lot of crimes.
