Paris police were able to use information found on a phone, but what details can be found that could tackle future attacks?
The response must be resolute, but it must be rational.
Less is often more – acting quickly in the wake of atrocities rarely leads to good laws.
Addressing violent extremism requires more than police simply knowing about the signs of radicalisation.
We cannot ignore or underestimate the important role police can play in community-based efforts to tackle radicalisation and violent extremism.
Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull said counter-terrorism measures should be right and effective, not just tough.

Theresa May's latest extremism bill means citizens can be punished even before they commit a crime.
Governments need to focus their counter-terrorism strategies on strengthening community relations and trust.
Despite significant budgetary constraints, the government announced in Tuesday's budget that a further A$450 million in counter-terrorism strategies. But something significant is lacking in its approach.
The federal government wants to stop terrorists groups recruiting Australians online.
A crackdown on terrorist groups that use the internet and social media to recruit Australians is part of the federal government's new budget.
When Australians hear about Foreign Minister Julie Bishop’s dire warnings and counter-terrorism raids, they could lose historical perspective on the threat posed by Islamic State.
Dire government warnings and counter-terrorism raids in our suburbs paint a picture of the worst threat Western nations have ever faced. A little historical perspective is in order.
Melbourne teenager Jake Bilardi was troubled and thus susceptible to Islamic State propaganda well before he joined them and died as a suicide bomber.
The instinctive response to Islamic State propaganda is to counter it with more propaganda. But my analysis shows that's not working. We should not play their game on their field with their ball.
Australian Muslims feel that they are being targeted as a group by counter-terrorism laws.
The majority of Muslims in Australia condemn terrorism and extremism. But they feel that counter-terrorism policing and laws unfairly target their community, causing a troubling community backlash.
The story of Jake Bilardi (centre) has distorted the characterisation of what most people think of as a radicalised individual.
There will be more Jake Bilardis to come, and Australia must realise that no two cases will be entirely the same. Radicalised individuals will come from all areas of society.

Amid debate about expanded national security laws, political leaders have yet to explain why terrorism is a more important threat than other challenges such as climate change or domestic violence.
Tony Abbott’s proposed national security measures include significant changes to Australia’s citizenship regime.
The proposal to revoke the citizenship of dual citizens who fight for terrorist groups would materially expand upon the existing grounds for citizenship loss.
Tony Abbott’s proposed national security changes have the potential to exacerbate the underlying causes of violent extremism and further damage Australia’s social cohesion.
Australia’s response to terrorism must not be rooted in short-term political gains, but in a larger strategy that takes into account the problems leading to social disaffection.
