Not only did we see the new peacekeepers arrive in D12 in trucks, but in MJ1 Gale says they left in them before the bombing. I assumed when I read the books that they arrived by train or maybe hovercraft.

If they didn't have satellites, it seems like they would have to have some kind of large antenna to pick up the Capitol broadcasts. Which would then be wired to the homes. And not have individual antennae on each house. One thing I've speculated on is each home's TV might be bugged. So the government could spot check for seditious conversations.

Other things that don't add up. How did they heat their houses in D12. Electricity was spotty. They were not officially supposed to go to the forest for wood. I guess coal was just something else that had to be bought. And if it was a choice between starving to death and freezing, that was just tough. I don't think the book said anything other than Katniss telling Rue that they couldn't get as much coal as they wanted. When she erroneously assumed that D11 got as much food as they wanted.

Speaking of population. Did you ever have an idea of how may out district people there was supposed be? In your fictional interpretation of a work of fiction. LOL.

One thing the movies did get right. When they go to D11 on the victory tour. That fence really drives the point home that for all intents and purposes it is exactly what it looks like, a forced labor camp.
