Since it’s incpetion in 2006 (to our knowledge) this program has been bad news for civil rights.
I think one particular phrase by a Founding Father sums up pretty much everything on this topic:
“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” -Benjamin Franklin
Clearly us Americans thought this wasn’t a big deal in 2006, so we’re now, sadly, reaping the fruits. Too bad we didn’t listen to good ole Benny Franklin.
