here at the HACKS initiative, if there's one thing we love, it's our cops! but sometimes they do things that freak us out a bit, like when they adopt "pre-crime" measures and surveil us without our knowledge or consent. we take a quick look at two new-ish technologies that aim to do both of those things, as well as diving into the recent controversy that struck the open source dev community when some developers took issue with Microsoft's dalliance with the US's Immigrations Customs and Enforcement division, better known as ICE.
I'm sorry about all the editing jokes.
