In reaction to the 9/11 attacks, the United States is beginning to lean towards excessive police force to combat terrorism. The article discusses three relatively recent cases (Hudson v. Michigan, Hiibel v. Sixth Judicial District Court of Nevada, and Scott v. Harris) in which courts held for police convenience over citizens’ rights. The author concludes with his desire that citizens not trade their fears of terrorists for fear of police excesses.
