Presumption of guilt?

The US "war" on terror and erosion of freedom is fascinating to watch.

They both learned the same astounding piece of information about the little things that can set the threat sensors to beeping and blinking.

They were told, as they moved up the managerial ladder at the call center, that the amount they had sent in was much larger than their normal monthly payment. And if the increase hits a certain percentage higher than that normal payment, Homeland Security has to be notified. And the money doesn't move until the threat alert is lifted.

While I grudgingly accept the inevitability of surveillance systems for security, the presumption of guilt by America's Homeland Security should be ringing alarm bells everywhere. Why the money freeze? Is it to stop potential terrorists from purchasing JCPenney's new range of multi-pocketed suicide bomber apparel?
