The paper discusses how terrorist attacks have changed the face of prosecution today. The paper shows how as the nation moves more deeply into the 21st century and the age of terrorism, it will need to step carefully through the landmine of civil rights and other protections while still targeting and eradicating terrorist crime. The paper maintains that the people of America should feel secure that when terrorists are caught they will be vigorously dealt with.

From the Paper:

"For many years, Americans lived in the security of knowing that they were safe from terrorism within this nation's boundaries. They believed that other countries were afraid to attack and for years they built up a false sense of security that it would never happen here. The events of 9-11 brought that sense of security to screeching halt and today, Americans find themselves in the same predicament of many other countries when it comes to acts of terrorism against their nation.
The prosecution of terrorists is a topic that has taken on heated elements in recent years, because it is no longer a theoretical debate, but an actual one."
