Wasn't the main objective of treaty was to deal with terrorists? And is it not true that US is misusing it to harass the citizens of UK charged with minor crimes?

Extradition Laws to deal with terrorist

The Treaty was never intended to deal only with terrorism cases. In fact, renegotiation of the treaty
began before September 11, 2001.The new treaty updated the formal extradition relationship between the
U.S. and UK following changes in the UK’s own extradition laws and corrected a previous imbalance that
required the US to present its evidence in "prima facie" form, when the U.S. had never required that from
the UK. The treaty strengthens each country’s ability to extradite serious offenders for a wide variety of
crimes – including terrorism and other violent crimes, organized crime, and white-collar crime.
