My idea is important because the loss of our civil liberties as a result of the 'war on terrorism' is not making us safer but causing increasing resentment across all sections of our society. In the past, people gave up their lives for these rights and we led the world in our open democratic government and laws protecting our civil rights.
This sort of thing proved useless in the past through inappropriate and over the top use against ethnic minorities. It caused massive ill feeling between those people and the police which has never been resolved. There must be an appropriate reason for it and it must be done in a respectful professional way.
