This chapter analyzes criminal justice scholarship studies on Muslim Americans. It combines structural, sociopolitical, and codal perspectives that have dominated discourse related to Muslim Americans with social psychological principles. These principles must be given a more prominent position in explaining deference, defiance, and the effective rule of law. Law enforcement scholars and practitioners must transcend the so-called “United States of Fighting Terrorism”—an orientation that blinds the system from seeing how the interpersonal and intrapsychic processes that received considerable support in explaining trust in the law among Whites, Blacks, and Hispanics must be applied to Muslims who have experienced differential treatment in the years since 9/11.

Keywords:   law enforcement, criminal justice, Muslim Americans, United States of Fighting Terrorism, differential treatment, 9/11, law enforcement
