This allows law enforcement to use surveillance against crime, and allows law enforcement to investigate without terrorists fleeing, or destroying evidence. This act also created better information sharing among government agencies so that they can communicate more efficiently in order to uncover terrorist plots before they are completed.

Based on my knowledge on conspiracy I believe that the RICO act is necessary but can also be not useful depending how the defendant pleads his case. Conspiracy is defined as a secret plan by a group to do something unlawful or harmful.
