In a recent Gallup pole, less than one-half of one percent of respondents ranked terrorism as the most important issue facing the United States.

While we want citizens to be vigilant and to report suspicious activity to law enforcement, we do not want them to be preoccupied with concerns about terrorism. And, while we want them to be partners with law enforcement in the coproduction of safety, we do not want citizens in a free and democratic society to be fearful.
