I'll throw it out there, why didn't mass surveillance detect the Vegas shooter plot? Isn't the mega-surveillance system geared toward this kind of scenario?
Fitting a person and a pattern together.... A genuine gun nut.
Weird hotel bookings adjacent to other outdoor events. A similar plot thwarted in NYC has been revealed, with lots of emails between the conspirators.
Common for his companion's family to recive?
Large wire transfers.
Paddock's chatter and reference to the plot.
New gun purchase on the way to Vegas with a hotel reservation....huh?
I'm saying that current predictive methods could indeed detect this.

I used to work for Digital Equipment Corp.
We were ahead of our time in many ways, one of them was building security.
We used 'DANNY'.
6'4" father of three who could sat near reception, Danny knew everyone who worked there, smiled at most, helped you get in if your"d forgotten your badge, and kept you out if you had no business being inside. He was good at reading 'signals'.
I wonder what Danny would have made of a single man checking, with 10 suitcases, who didn't come out of his room for two days, but did erect a camera to see who was coming down the corridor on the third day?
Maybe the end of the 'Do not Disturb' sign as we know it?
Interesting, so you want more surveillance programming so that all people will

I'm saying that current predictive methods could indeed detect this. Better programming might help, but it is possible with AI.
Also, drawing attention to the fact that we submit to a system that failed to protect us.
Therein lies the contradiction.

Didn't order pumpkin spice latte...
Didn't Facebook much.
Criminal past... nope.
Seems to me the guy didn't take to social media much.
The whole low profile thing.
So no super computer could profile him🙄
