Finch created it in order to prevent the events of 11/09/2011 from recurring. But later on, it turned out that the system can foretell the common civil crimes. The information about usual threats was recorded detachedly and then erased every midnight.
In the course of time, Finch came to a conclusion that a large amount of common crimes could have been averted if the data had been used. Finch, however, didn’t offer this idea to the government as he was and his friend Nathan Ingram became the victims of an assault. Nathan went west and Finch was declared to be dead.
After a serious injury which has paralyzed Finch partly he hires John Reese, the former so-called “dead” agent of CIA, in order to be supported in his intentions to bring these crimes to the end by means of using the resources and technical facilities of Finch and the intelligence of Reese.
