Horatio, it's not fantasy. As it happens, I am reading an account of a "preventive arrest" from almost 40 years ago. While that case is local police run amok, it happens, even at a policy level.
Read William Sampson's account of a recent detention. And then consider whether your thought is over the top.
I don't think it is at all.
