police, potential and 'protection'

Of police and potential and 'protecting' the rest of us....
A 24-year-old man has been charged over an alleged plan to attack US military personnel in the UK.
Junead Ahmed Khan has also been charged, along with his uncle Shazib Ahmed Khan, 22 [sic], both from Luton, over attempting to join Islamic State militants in Syria.
Prosecutors said the men were charged with the intention of committing acts of terrorism.
Both men will appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court later on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, in Egypt:
Dozens of people in Egypt have apparently disappeared after being detained secretly by security forces, Human Rights Watch (HRW) has warned.
The US-based group said in some cases state officials either denied holding individuals or refused to reveal their fates.
It called on the authorities to immediately disclose their whereabouts and hold those responsible to account.
Enforced disappearances constitute a serious violation of international law.
If carried out systematically as a matter of policy, they are a crime against humanity.
Once "disappeared" in Argentina. Now "disappeared" in Egypt. "An alleged plan" in England....

And I am supposed to feel safer? 

Whose "terrorism" is this?
