I think that's too much of a simplification. Labeling people according to their "criminality" is not all there is to this system. The system also dictates what to do with these people.

I mean, it's obvious a rape victim would be unstable enough to be a potential threat to herself and others. You don't need a futuristic speaking gun to tell you that. The issue is, what do you do with such a person? Do you treat her like the victim she is and provide her with the appropriate psychological and physical help, or do you put a paralyzing gun on her head and send her to their hellish "rehabilitation" camp?

It doesn't take much to realize this "system" is pile of cr@p.
