Acts of Deviance
Terrorism is is another use of the word terror. Most of the time the acts of terrorism are a very violent act performed on another party. These acts are created just to make fear for another group they are against.
One of the main terrorists that comes to mind is Osama Bin Ladin. He was an al-Qaeda leader for many years, that was responsible for many deaths that have occurred in various countries.
Notice how I said he was the leader of Al-Qaeda. May 2nd, 2011, Osama Bin Ladin was shot and killed inside a private residential impound he was trying to hide in. He was a major target of the War on Terror. Osama had a $25 million dollar bounty on his chest by the Federal Bereau of Investigation. Bin Ladin was known for organizing many bombings to other countries to either get revenge or orders from other countries who couldn’t do it themselves. September 11th, 2001 Bin Ladin was responsible for the attack on the World Trade Center in New York City, New York. He organized a hijacking of four commercial passenger aircrafts that flew into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, New York. Right away he denied having anything to do with these attacks, and denied it for four years. The US finally got ahold of some footage that had him discussing this plot to another man on what he planned to do. This put an even bigger target on his back. He was responsible for the deaths of 2,973 people, not including the 19 hijackers. That’s close to 3,000 deaths due to him in just one attack. He organized the hijacking of these plans by dividing these 19 people into groups of four. He hired people to train them how to fly and what the plan was to take over the planes. They had the “muscle” people of the team who would distract, or restrain anybody so the hijacking pilots could get to the cockpit to do their job. With the crashing of the Twin Towers, this shook the world. Other countries were now afraid of what could happen to them due to the power, and evil he holds. Other leaders of different countries including the US, declared they wanted justice. They wanted him dead or alive. And sure enough the power of the US over ruled Bin Ladin and took over the job. This is a major act of deviance, but with this happening, it increases our security and we don’t take anymore threats lightly.
