Since Hoeft’s experience, she now says to dial 911 first, then alert student services or other departments of the college because the police are trained for these distressing cases and are not worried about the schools image but only the security of the public (Hoeft).
The attackers were terrorists from Saudi Arabia and many other Arab nations. Osama Bin Laden’s al-Qaeda terrorist organization supposedly orchestrated these attacks, they were acting against Americas support for Israel, our role in the Persian Gulf War, and military presence in the east. Many of the terrorists had lived in America for about a year before the attack. The terrorists smuggled box cutters and knives easily through security making it easy to hijack the planes. Right after takeoff, the terrorists took full control of the planes turning them from normal airliners into weapons. (History)
The terrorist responsible for this attack is Timothy McVeigh. Months before the bombing, McVeigh, along with his accomplice Terry Nichols, was believed to be involved in an “anti-government militia group” (Casey 3). McVeigh believed the government was devising a plan to deprive him and as well as the rest of his country of their rights as Americans to bear arms (Casey).

In any choice that we as humans make, there is always going to be a consequence that comes with that decision; whether it be positive or negative. Making decisions is an ordinary part of our everyday lives, some of those decisions may be bigger than others. The short story I decided to display that contains the idea of choice and consequence is The Second Bakery Attack by Haruki Murakami. Looking at the symbolism and techniques of language in this short story through the reader’s-response theory, I was able to interpret the story from my point of view and give my thoughts and opinions on it as I read it. While reading the story, I was able to identify a recurring theme of choice. Choice plays a huge role throughout this short story.
On Monday November 28, 2016 in Columbus, Ohio on the campus of Ohio State University, an attack took place. The attack was played out by a young man by the age of 18 and resulted in 11 people to be hospitalized. The attacker was known as Abdul Razak All Artan, who came from
Nidal Hasan has been accused of the shooting that occurred at a training center on November 5th 2009, killing thirteen people and injuring many others (Jonsson
On Monday, November 30th at 9:50 am a student at Ohio State University by the name of Abdul Artan attempted to fatally harm both students and staff, forcing the campus to go into lockdown and also resulting in his life being taken away at the scene. Smith and Perez- Pena explain that Artan first was driving at high speeds onto campus, hitting anyone in his way, and not stopping his vehicle until he hit a concrete barrier. In addition, Abdul also hit 6 students in the process, not fatally hurting them, but he continued his reign of terror by getting out of his vehicle and immediately trying to stab innocent bystanders with a knife. However, an even bigger piece to the aftermath is that FBI officials think that this attack may be linked to a
The FBI treated the incident as a terrorist act, but the motive was not determined. The FBI found that Farook communicated with domestic and foreign extremists in the past, including five individuals who had been investigated by the FBI for possible terrorist activities. Law enforcement authorities obtained phones, which were highly damaged, and a computer from the couple’s home. Authorities were unable to determine the shooters’ motive but narrowed it to two possibilities—terrorism or work-place violence. However, aside from the physical evidence found, the couple was radicalized before they got married, had gone to a shooting range days before they attacked the health center, and an explosive was found at the health center. Thus,
The three Americans who recently stopped a terrorist attack on a passenger train in Europe have finally talked about the ordeal. Spencer Stone, one of the people who helped stop the attack, stated that he saw Moroccan Ayoub El-Khazzani holding an assault rifle. That was when Stone and his two friends stopped the attacker by choking him unconscious.
The attack was led by al-Shabab, an al Qaeda's affiliate in Somalia. This is said to be the deadliest attack led by him. More than 500 students managed to escape with less than 80 people who were actually injured
Mid-decade was pretty busy with attacks. I’m quite surprised that so much has happened in American and to Americans abroad. Again, I was completely oblivious to the fact that so many people desired political change. Because we vote on a new president and “control” our government during elections, we have a peaceful way to voice our opinion for change. However, others are not so lucky, so they choose terrorism. Terrorism remains a tool to be used by groups that lack the possibility of these kinds of peaceful or violent protests against a current government (Lutz, James and Brenda J. Lutz. 2011, PG.100
