* AwesomeButImpractical: The Dominator guns are incredibly powerful and can completely eliminate the target, causing them to blow apart in a shower of LudicrousGibs, but without a wireless connection to Sibyl they are unable to authorize action and are completely useless, so if you can't get a signal you might as well not have one. This is not just a one off problem either, it occurs multiple times in the series. And when switching to a lethal mode, the gun needs a few seconds to complete its transformation sequence. Anyone who has had to fight for their life can tell you that a split second can literally mean the difference between surviving or dying. This is most apparent in episode 11, when the "Lovecraft" attack drone nearly manages to bite off Kougami's face because his Dominator was busy first registering the target as a threat, and ''then'' transforming and ''then'' charging up a shot.

** Episode 8 is the biggest Wham Episode of the entire series. [[spoiler:Kamui's body is composed of various parts from the other 184 children who died in the plane crash. The Tougane Foundation's technology is responsible for the existence of Sibyl. Tougane is a [[DesignerBabies Designer Baby]] who is the personal assassin of the Sibyl System, and Chief Kasei's resident brain at the time is Tougan's mother, Tougane Misako. And they're about to reveal the truth of Sibyl to Mika.]]

** Averted. The PSB has their own therapist who helped inspectors from being stressed and latent criminals to lower their crime coefficient. But again, it's up to the clients if they want to continue the therapy which is TruthInTelevision.
** Played straight with [[spoiler:Kirito Kamui. Once he realized he was becoming invisible to the Sibyl System and that he was in effect, becoming an {{Unperson}}, he tried find help from various doctors and counselors, but they all turned him away since associating with someone not recognized by Sibyl could cause them to doubt the system, which would in turn cause their Hues to darken.]]

* BreadAndCircuses: Holograms, virtual worlds, psychiatric medications, high-paying jobs, {{Kawaisa}} Drones, and anything so that the masses' Psycho-Passes would be reduced. If that does not work, then either rehabilitation (which seems to be pretty comfortable as the rehabilitated were allowed to keep their cherished possessions in life) or enforcement.
