Public protection is becoming something of an exclusive club! Justified loss of rights? It should of course be remembered that the whole edifice of public protection is built upon the possibility that something might happen in the future. It may be based upon an event, or a pattern of events in the past, but it is by definition about predicting the future. This in itself may not appear to be too problematic, but it is the consequence of being predicted potentially dangerous that is very serious.
As we have implied above, the development of what has become known as the risk society is closely linked with fear of crime. As fear grows, invariably fuelled by media-fed moral panics, the pressure is on the government to do something. However, if serious consideration is given to trying to do something about possible future events, it is not difficult to see that this is essentially an impossible task. It is not possible to predict what people might do and when they might do it. This, however, is precisely what the public expect, and therefore is something that governments have to be seen to deliver.
