As described in the Module 7 Power Point presentation, criminologist Gwynn Nettler outlined all terrorism shares

six characteristics:

  1. No Rules-No moral limitations on the type or degree of violence that terrorists can use.
  2. No Innocents-No respecter of persons; from soldiers to children; all are game.
  3. Economy-Kill one, frighten 10,000
  4. Publicity-Terrorists seek publicity, and publicity encourages terrorism.
  5. Meaning-Terrorist acts give meaning and significance to the lives of terrorists.

Please be very sensitive to the issues of plagiarism! All of the written work submitted must clearly be your own. Keep in mind transcription of material (copying), followed by parenthetical identification of the source with little or no original thought added does not constitute an adequate essay. You are expected to provide some evidence that at least a significant portion of the each essay is your own reaction to, thought about or evaluation of the subject of the essay, composed in your own words. Agreement, disagreement, examples, etc. are appropriate – as long as evidence of some thoughtful and pertinent independent thought, reaction, or response to the term or question is included.
