Interlinear Defense Strategy
The Departments of Homeland Security and Justice must operate to the highest standards in prosecuting criminals including terrorists. In so doing, they seek an iron clad case before prosecution.
Terrorists, however, operate in the shadows of justice, below the radar, and like a serpent, they strike at the last second with little or no warning.
Should we the innocents expect our government to wait until the last second to intervene, if they can, or should we expect accurate anticipation and timely intervention?
When circumstantial details mount that may not yet reach the threshold required by the justice system, yet still very convincing, should there not be a preemptive strike or means of thwarting the attack?
It seems to me that the threat is sufficiently great to warrant improving the intervention process, and if that means supporting an interlinear defense, so be it.
Police agencies, as a critical part of the criminal justice paradigm, have played a very important role in promoting public safety, reducing crime, and maintaining social order. In addition to the more traditional interpretation of the responsibilities of policing in reducing crime, increasingly police are called upon to contribute to the protection of the United States from terrorist attacks. Over the years, police agencies have evolved in their philosophy towards the maintenance of social order to progress from a reactive style of policing to a more proactive style of policing. Reactive policing has not impact on minimizing damages to victims or preempting criminal and terrorist activities. On the other hand, proactive policing is a strategy to preempt or disrupt criminal activities before a crime or attack takes place. Two of the most cited forms of proactive policing are situational policing and intelligence-led policing. This study will illustrate and discuss lessons learned from the European countries such as Great Britain and Ireland in their successful implementation of intelligence-led policing, as well as information on situational policing from Delaware.”
