“There were 372 mass shootings in the U.S. in 2015, killing 475 and wounding 1870” BBC News reports. According to the statistic, mass shootings are happening everyday and even every minute an hour. Mass shooting is a huge public concern. Therefore, when a shooting occurs, media would often report the shooting with bloody detail, surprised statistics, and influential old shooting. Moreover, the media are the biggest fear mongers which create public panic to the society by using various methods.
A great terror struck our nation September 11, 2001, two aircraft’s hit the world trade centers, killing 2000 people and injuring over twice as many. A third aircraft flew into the Pentagon while a fourth crashed in a rural area in Pennsylvania. This day will forever be engrained into history as one of the worst terror attacks faced in this nation. Nearly three years later, in an attempt to figure out what happened on that tragic day, scholars came together to discuss the possible parallels between foreign and domestic terrorist. The author, Michael Kimmel, outlines the possible cause of the 2001 attacks and offers us a link between both foreign and domestic terrorism.
As television watching increased severely over the past half-century, it also became more violent. In 1969 the National Commission on the causes and prevention of violence indicated that ‘The preponderance of the available research evidence strongly suggests…that violence in television programs can and does have adverse effects upon audiences’ (cited in Berkowitz, 1993, p.199.) Since that time, television violence has increased largely. Research reports in 1970, published that children has seen over 11,000 murders on television by the age of 14. More recent researches and reports have demonstrated that now, the average child sees more than 100,000 violent crimes on television every year and about 200,000 crimes when they reach their teens.
In the essay "We're Safer Post 9/11" written by Eric Holder, Janet Napolitano, and James Clapper, a very intelligent, well descriptive work is published based on the days after the tragic 9/11 event. We all know that 9/11 was a very sad day and it destroyed the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Shanksville, Pa. The writers gave great examples as to how the United States has increased the safety of our country. We have took down most of the people and groups affiliated with the 9/11 attack and that is a great achievement accomplished. The attempt of proving how we have increased our safety was well expressed.
Ideally, the discussed vice is complicated and could easily link with other kinds of cybercrime such as cyber-warfare or cyber-terrorism. In explaining the disturbing nature of organized cybercrime, the author compares the operations of ordinary physical world criminal organizations such as ISIS to the use of hackers by state agencies. Similarly, the author uses information from known online groups such as Anonymous, LulzSec, and Unlimited Operations to explore the connection between the internet groups and their physical world
Throughout his article, Krugman continually supports that “the goal of terrorists is to inspire terror, because that 's all they’re capable of” (Krugman). Krugman manages to downplay the fear terrorism instills by using “more amorphous and elastic” (Nunberg) word, terror; consequently, he is able to manipulate the audience into thinking an event was just an act of terror, rather than using the loaded word, “terrorism.” In addition to choosing intentional diction, Krugman also uses the propaganda technique, cardstacking, to underemphasize and omit the possible outcomes of terrorism by explaining, “terrorism is just one of many dangers in the world” (Krugman), allowing him to avoid the real issue at hand, terrorist attacks. (*****). Additionally, Krugman rewords the phrase “organized attempt to destroy Western civilization”(Krugman) and replaces it with “organized attempt to sow panic” (Krugman), allowing him to effectively make his statement more convincing and appealing (Luntz) by replacing “destroy,” a powerfully connotated word with “panic” which has much less emphasis.
My opinion on law enforcement is people doing their job and that job is enforcing the law and keeping the peace. The way law enforcement is being portrayed in the media lately is negative. The media is making it seem it that law enforcement should not be trusted. When I think about the police officers who have shot innocent civilians because they believed the civilians were a threat, I think about what they were doing their job. Police officers are humans too and humans make mistakes.
Introduction Terrorism is a phenomenon that has developed fairly recently in human history. Especially in the recent decade (2010-present) we have seen a massive surge in terrorist activity in the world and online. The United States hit a turning point after 9/11 that would change our security procedures and laws forever. With the current threats of ISIS and state sponsored terrorism, the need for discussion about terrorism is paramount. This paper aims to establish what terrorism is and provide examples of terrorist events in the past, as well as establish the relationship of criminal activity and terrorist acts and the risk of emergency responders and terrorism.
In today’s society, media coverage on events in our local communities, nationwide and worldwide play an influential part of everyday life. However, media coverage on criminal justice matters are both negative and positive influences in policy making in our country. Banks (2016) explains media coverage on crime gives a public thought to what causes crime and what is criminal. Media gives the message to legislators and policy makers considered as morally and socially acceptable in media. Create an ethics policy for the media in handling the reporting of criminal justice issues and news First, the ethics in policies for the media in the way it handles reporting criminal justice issues and news is that the media decides on what coverage of crime and criminal justice matters are to be covered.
With computer technologies and the internet has connected the world together with the ability to communicate with people in different countries. As a society, we have become very dependent on computers and when the systems go down we cannot function as well, businesses cannot conduct their business. With the internet connecting the world together, it gives concerns for cyber-terrorism and cyber-attacks. Cyberterrorism is when a group attacks a target with intention of causing harm and further political, social, religious, or other goals. Cyber-attacks are attacks on a target system carried about by different people and may not be associated with a terrorist group.
Cybersecurity has become a growing cause for concern in the United States and indeed countries around the world. On February 9, 2016 President Barack Obama announced his Cybersecurity National Action plan (CNAP) to further the nations efforts to protect government agencies, citizens, and businesses from cyber threats domestic and abroad. However, cybersecurity is not a new issue in fact it is as old as the internet itself. With that said, I keep thinking back to that warm September day stained with the image of an enormous fireball engulfing our small TV set. This horrific day changed the course of history forever along with my future career path.
Decades ago, people felt that cyber war was not a serious threat. However, in recent years, there have been numerous instances of cyber warfare that viewed as significant threats to security. In December 2010, a group calling itself the Pakistan Cyber Army
3. Mass Media Relations (the Press) with the Government Press and government are interdependent with each other. The press and society are the same. The press is impossible to live and thrive in an area without any government and society. Because the territory without regulatory power and so-called government, will tend to be a jungle for the human wolves that inhabit it.
