Episode Description

Terror is violence or threat of violence perpetrated by private individuals or small groups from the hegemonic strata against members of negative reference groups and that enjoys the tacit approval if not active participation of members of the security forces. A terrorist is an individual who carries out or threatens to carryout acts of terror, for hire or not for hire. The act of harming or killing others, who are direct enemies or innocent victims, may be for monetary gain, gain of group principle, gain of personal principle, or any combination. In the author’s research and consulting, he has categorized terrorists into four areas: Psychopathic, Ethno-geographic Religious, Ethno-geographic Political, and The Retributional Terrorist, a term of identification he coined while a Visiting Fellow at University of Maryland in 1986.
