In the recent news, everyone’s heard of the rise in hate crime. Most hate crime is “motivated by racial, sexual, or other prejudice, typically one involving violence,” (Dictionary.com). Hate crimes have spanned across the country and impact thousands of lives each year. The FBI started investigating hate crimes at the turn of the 20th century. The FBI define hate crime as, “criminal offense against a person or property motivated in whole or in part by an offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, or gender identity,” (FBI).
ISIS terrorized for the radical beliefs of Islam and their religion. Recently ISIS carried out an attack in Egypt on Rawdah Sufi mosque in Bir al-Abed. CNN news states, “Between 25 and 30 armed men carried out the assault, and the death toll climbs above 300.” Another ISIS attack happened in Kabul, Afghanistan. On January 4th of 2018 New York Times states that "A suicide bomber working for ISIS attacked a market where shopkeepers were protesting against the police killing 20 and wounding two dozen." Here, again we see two instances where a group of people twists their religion to kill these people and cause terror.

Most estimates places the number of insurgents killed at around 1,200 to 1,500, with some estimations as high as over 2,000 killed. Coalition forces also captured approximately 1,500 insurgents during the operation. Multiple medals of heroism were rewarded, such as First Sergeant Bradley Kasal and Sergeant Rafael Peralta, who both received Navy Crosses for actions made during the battle. The city itself suffered immensely from the loss of residences, mosques, city services, and businesses. Once called the "City of Mosques," Fallujah had around 200 mosques, of which sixty were completely destroyed during the fighting.
The Mc Martin Trials Mass hysteria has been known to influence people’s behavior throughout history. There are many known cases in the world; for instance, there is the infamous Salem Witch trials, a mass delusion that killed over 40 people in 1692. It is believed to have such power that it can pilot entire nations. One of the best known cases in mass delusions in the past decades in the United States happened in the small town of Manhattan Beach in California in 1983. Virginia Mc Martin, founder of the Mc Martin preschool, jointly with her family and staff were accused of child molestation, sodomy and satanic ritual abuse toward their students.
“Enraged by the bombings, the United States government responded by raiding the headquarters of radical organizations and arresting thousands of suspected radicals. Several thousand who were aliens were deported. The largest raids occurred on January 2, 1920 when over 4000 suspected radicals were seized nationwide. Over 800 were arrested in New England from locations that included Boston, Brockton, Chelsea, Fitchburg, Lawrence, and Lynn.” (www.mass.gov). The bombings only confirmed what the Americans had feared.
(Question 7) There is a vast degree of ways in which our culture’s traditional definitions of “masculinity” can do harm to social relations and people’s well-being. An example of this is shown in the film Tough Guise. Tough Guise presents the issue of violence in America, and how that issue spans beyond simple violence or guns, but instead is an issue of the patriarchy and the cultural norm of “masculinity.” When violence is discussed in America, “real or imaginary,” (Tough Guise Film) it is almost always male violence that is being discussed. However, when the media talks about this violence, it becomes a “youth problem instead of a men’s issue” (Tough Guise Film), and the few times that gender is acknowledged, it is excused as testosterone, or boys will be boys. The reality of this mindset, and the violence that goes along with it, is that the traditional idea of “masculinity” is portrayed through male dominance and aggression, this in turn is presented throughout the violence we see in the media.
Successful international counter-terrorism efforts against terrorist organization like al-Qaeda have inflicted heavy casualties and decimated much of their senior leadership over the last decade (Sageman, 2008, p. 131). These efforts have forced many terrorist organizations to adopt a highly decentralized cellular model in order to survive. Starting in the mid 2000’s, al-Qaeda began to adopt this new concept of unorganized terrorist cells and leaderless jihad (also known as the lone wolf concept) (Spaaij, 2012, p. 26). This concept was further refined and formalized in a 1,604 page book written by Mustafa Setmariam Nasar, a high ranking al-Qaeda operative at the time, titled Call to Global Islamic Resistance which can be found in PDF format on many radical Islamists websites (Zackie, 2013, p. 1). This new strategy endorses smaller scale, less complicated attacks which are well suited for the lone wolf concept (Barnes, 2012, p. 1649).
There are many reasons as to why a large population is on the opposition as to having doxing being acceptable throughout the nation. The leading reason for these thoughts is that doxing can lead to more horrific acts such as, inducing acts of terror. On July 6, 2015, a man “…admitted to “swatting” and “doxing” numerous individuals, to communicating a false shooting and bomb threat on a university campus in Arizona, and to committing a pattern of online harassment against a university student” (U.S. Attorney of Columbia 1). What started off as harassing people over the internet, quickly modified into terroristic threats that put not only the lives of the victims in harm’s way, but also the first responders who thought they were actually walking

In this phrase we get an idea of what is currently happening in Nigeria and how it is politically driven. The military uses its power to

Nevertheless, with the increasing risk of more home-grown radical Islamic terrorist turning up on United States soil, great levels of distress have recently been expressed by Americans because of the looming risk of what could result from this prisoner radicalization. The recent uprising of the radical Islamic extremist group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), has resulted in a significant rise in the number of annual domestic terrorism- related arrests. The ideology implemented through ISIS’s methods of teaching, has
The death toll among these police brutality victims is extremely alarming. Every year police in the United States kill hundreds of people—461 in 2013, according to incomplete FBI statistics based on self-reporting from local law enforcement agencies, and more than 1,000 in 2014 according to Champion, which combs through media reports. The fatal shooting in August of 18-year-old Michael Brown by a Ferguson, Missouri, police officer in an interaction that began over jaywalking propelled the issue of police violence and excessive force into the national news cycle. The police response to subsequent protests similarly propelled the issue of militarized police into the national news cycle (Champion,
