10.) A new search program intended for law enforcement is on its way. Memex is not your average web search engine. It's goal is to be able to extend current search capabilities. Also, find and organize mission-critical publically available information on the internet. Memex's first intended use is to help the defense department with fighting human trafficking.

Evidence proves a lack of crime prevention. Surveillance doesn't help physical security only a sense or feeling of security. A major concern is surveillance infringing upon privacy and freedoms.
