Terror ‘hot spots’ in the U.S.

U.S. Terrorism Hot Spots Map

 

A study by university researchers on terror attacks in the U.S. between 1970 and 2008 found some areas in the U.S. have remained hot spots for the activity.

The study, Hot spots of terrorism and other crimes in the United States: 1970 to 2008, was released on Jan. 31 by the University of Maryland’s National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START). It said during the last 40 years, terrorist activity of many types in the U.S. has been widely dispersed, occurred in every state, with large urban areas seeing a heavier concentration of the activity. The study said Manhattan, Los Angeles, Miami Dade, San Francisco and Washington, DC, are hot spots for terror activity now and have been in the past.

Is Terrorism in the Eye of the Beholder? Animal Rights Extremists Think So.

The first time California animal rights activist and trauma surgeon Dr. Jerry Vlasak endorsed the murder of scientists who use animals in their medical research (click here for audio), he was speaking as a representative of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM). After a U.S. Senate grilling left no doubt that Vlasak was deadly serious, British immigration added him to its “no entry” list.

That’s good news for UK scientists. But the bad news is that Jerry Vlasak is still here in America—and he’s still defending the use of murder as an animal-rights campaign tactic.
