Innocent

Doing the wrong things can practically get you labeled as a terrorist in the making! It's the very sort of thing that Americans used to criticize the communists for during the Cold War-the paranoia, suspicion and obsessive distrust that characterized the Soviet Union.
    
Of course, it hasn't reached Soviet standards yet, but it wouldn't take too long to do so at the rate things are going.
And now they're talking about making "proactive efforts" to track down potential terrorists-or up and coming drug addicts, gang members, and maybe any class of people that society considers undesirable. That might catch a few bad guys and evildoers, but it's sure to ensnare many innocent people as well and ruin a lot of lives.
