In the middle of the civil war, for example, Abraham Lincoln suspended the writ of habeas corpus observing that a limb may be sacrificed to save a life, but a life is never wisely given to save a limb.
But it didn't fall. You caught it. The fact that you prevented it from happening doesn't change the fact that it was going to happen.
In 2054, the six-year Precrime experiment was abandoned. All prisoners were unconditionally pardoned and released, though police departments kept watch on many of them for years to come. Agatha and the twins were transferred to an undisclosed location, a place where they could find relief from their gifts. A place where they could live out their lives in peace.
 

Dr. Iris Henimen
I was doing genetic research at the Woodhaven Clinic in Rhode Island on Renning's Syndrome, a neurological condition that affects the cerebral cortex of children. All these kids were born with severe brain damage, most died before the age of 12. Those few, those precious few who survived, they had a gift. They would wake up in the night, curled up in the corner of the room, screaming, clawing at the wallpaper. Because, when these little children, if they closed their eyes at night, they dreamt only of murder. And it didn't take long for us to realize that the real nightmare was that these so called dreams were about to become true, that these murders were actually happening!
It's funny how all living organisms are alike. [She starts crushing a mutated plant] When the chips are down, when the pressure is on, every creature on the face of the Earth is interested in one thing and one thing only: [the plant scars her palm] its own survival.
Well, in my experience, parents often see their children as they want them to be, not as they are.

You still have a choice.
Can you see?
You can choose …

Dialogues from "Minority Report"

Director Lamar Burgess (Max von Sydow)
→ You can't run, John!

Chief John Anderton (Tom Cruise)
→ Everybody runs.

Chief John Anderton (Tom Cruise)
→ You can tell me how someone could fake a pre-vision.

Dr. Iris Henimen
→ How would I know that?

Chief John Anderton
→ Because you invented Precrime.

Dr. Iris Henimen
[laughs dryly] If a series of genetic mistakes and science gone haywire can be called "invention", then yes, I invented Precrime.

Chief John Anderton
→ You don't sound very proud.

Dr. Iris Henimen
→ I'm not. I was trying to cure them, not turn them into something else.

Chief John Anderton
→ Cure who?

Dr. Iris Henimen
→ The innocents we now use to stop the guilty.

Chief John Anderton
→ You're talking about... the Precogs.

Dr. Iris Henimen
→ You think the three in the tank came out of a test tube? They are merely the ones who survived.
