How ISIS Is Shaking Up Transatlantic Views on Surveillance and Counter-Terrorism


The country’s heightened security didn’t prevent a bloody July. Why not?

The following point is likely the best bet:

“Attacking this criminal dimension would probably be more effective than attacking the ideological aspect,” Gaub continued, whether that means toughening punishments or making sure that the punishment isn’t a step towards a greater crime. The Brussels attackers, for example, met in prison during short sentences. “Little networks formed in a situation with a shared experience, and that fosters the bond even further,” Gaub said, suggesting that authorities could devote more resources to tracking “what happens to people in prison, whom they interact with,” and “criminal career development[,” where “suddenly joining the Islamic State becomes the next step in their criminal career.”

Recidivism rates are important, a very small percentage of folks are responible for very large percentage of crime.
