What Are Acts of Terrorism?
Terrorism involves engaging in dangerous or violent activity with the intent to coerce or intimidate the public or to influence government policy. Examples of acts that may constitute terrorist activity include:
- Hijacking an airplane, train, bus, or other common carrier transportation
- Detonating nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons, or threatening to detonate weapons of mass destruction
- Kidnapping or assassination of government officials
- Attacking government or public facilities with explosives or vehicles
- Attacking mass transit systems
- Committing arson or bombings
- Harboring terrorists
- Providing financial or material support to terrorist organizations
- Financing terrorist activity
- Destroying or sabotaging power plants or public utilities
18 U.S.C. s. 2331 defines both international and domestic terrorism. International terrorism involves violent or dangerous acts that violate federal or state laws that appear to be intended to intimidate or coerce the public, influence government policy, or affect government operations through kidnapping, assassination, or mass destruction, and that occur primarily outside the United States or transcend national boundaries. Domestic terrorism is defined as terrorism that occurs primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the U.S.
Section 2332b is the criminal statute outlawing international terrorism. The statute makes it illegal to commit terrorism that transcends national borders and uses the mail or interstate/foreign commerce, affects interstate or foreign commerce, victimizes a government official or member of the uniformed services, affects federal government property, or occurs within the maritime and territorial jurisdiction of the U.S. Illegal conduct includes killing, kidnapping, maiming, assaulting and causing serious bodily injury, or assaulting with a dangerous weapon any person in the U.S. or creating a substantial risk of serious bodily injury by damaging or destroying property in the U.S.
Federal prosecutors also frequently charge groups of individuals engaged in terrorist acts with conspiracy. In addition, any one who helps others commit an act of terrorism may face charges of aiding and abetting.
