Where does security end and paranoia begin?

My first sighting of security shakedowns on the DC metro.

I hate to think of life without The Guardians (in Plato's sense) but worry when clear and present danger turns to paranoia.

In 1987 I was appalled to see heavily armed soldiers on street corners in Cairo. Now, for the past 11 years it's common in Washington and my own DC suburban community.
