In the early 1990’s programmers were able to develop software that tracks and provides timely analysis of criminal activity called COMPSTAT (COMPuter STATistics). This analysis has enabled police departments to tailored their responses to the data and rapidly deploy officers and resources to deter criminal activity. An accountability structure is vital to ensuring the analysis is acted upon and the responses are implemented properly and assess whether their responses were effective in reducing crime and disorder (Weisburd, Mastrofski, McNally, Greenspan, & Willis, 2003). COMPSTAT’s success has been widely touted, and its model has been broadly shared throughout police departments across the United States’. The COMPSTAT tool has enabled police departments to not only predict crime but deter crime before it occurs and properly assign officers to quickly respond to the threats when they occur.
The mission of the Bureau is to promote national security of United States of America (Kraft and Edward 6). It achieves that by taking the leading role in developing strategies and approaches that are coordinated so as to defeat terrorism and also to secure counterterrorism within the United States of America.

The 90’s saw an unprecedented number of natural disasters that would put FEMA’s resolve to the test. West coast earthquakes and mid-west floods are incidents that defined FEMA between 1992 and 1995. In 1993, America witnessed the first bombing of The World Trade Center. Then, in 1995, America was witness to home grown terrorism (the Oklahoma City Bombing), which would lead to the reintroduction of the fundamentals that was the framework of FEMA in the 1980’s, national security.
Hate crimes have an established set of laws that 's extremely enhanced and severe if crime is committed. According to Howard P. Berkowitz hate crimes are constitutional. “Current hate-crime laws are both valuable and constitutional” (Berkowitz).

The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 had an effect on the entire world and especially the United States, One important effect in our country was on the development of immigration policies, as U.S. took measures by adding policies to protect the country from another terrorist attack. Migration has always been a substantial part of human life. For ages, humans have traveled from place to place in search for a better life. Human migration is mostly due to starvation, or war, but also to re-unite families, escape persecution, and better employment opportunities. Since 9/11, policies regarding terrorism have misappropriated U.S. immigration laws to promote anti-terrorism goals and this has had profound impacts on people’s rights by limiting the right to privacy, criminalizing undocumented immigration and creating a culture of fear and discrimination towards Arab immigrants.
The historical event Pearl Harbor was a surprise military strike on December 7th, 1941. It was from the Imperial Japanese Navy upon the United States naval base that was located in the United States Territory of Hawaii. The attack was forceful, and something the world had never seen.

A tragedy is an event that is horrific and often can be never be healed. However, with the presence of the correct type of leadership, a tragedy can progressively produce a better world for mankind. For example, the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington D.C. were horrific tragedies. After the attacks on September 11, 2001, world leaders, such as President George W. Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair, produced speeches that motivated people to prevail over tragedy and instead take the opportunity to make a greater and more prosperous future for the world. President Bush and Prime Minister Blair also had to use their speeches to turn the world from terrorism to a more positive course.

Increasing Surveillance or Increasing Infringement In the novel, Little Brother, Marcus states, “Governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness” (Doctorow 220). Not every aspect of life can be monitored; when the government begins to abuse their power of surveillance, privacy becomes lost and democracy no longer prevails. People often debate the idea of increased surveillance because
Each plane had a distinctive destination. These locations included The World Trade Center, The Pentagon, and an undisclosed location, which we will never know. The terrorist had a calculated plan and initiated an attack so horrible that three hundred and forty three firefighters and paramedics lost their lives. Twenty three New York City police officers and thirty seven Port Authority police officers were also killed. Could we have had less casualties if we, our nation, was better prepared?
Mike Brown is the modern day Emmitt till, the six little girls burned in the church, and Trayvon Martin combined into one. The events that happened soon after arguably changed the lives of Ferguson citizens forever. Ferguson citizens was justified in their response due to the death of Mike Brown, police brutality, and the results of the indictment.

That fear translated into thousands of United States’ citizens suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. The death toll is still climbing today as New Yorkers and rescue workers from across the country battle cancer due to the environmental hazards suffered in the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001. Not only has the government been dramatically changed, but every American has been affected in some way from the events of
