Criminal Justice 2 Questions & Answers
Question 1: Explain the difference between international terrorism and domestic terrorism. Describe an example of each.
FBI identifies international terrorism as an act or the complex of acts which are directed against the safety of a human group due to their social, religious or political position (The FBI, 2015). Such acts are always violating federal and state law and are intended to do a mass humiliation, assassination or kidnapping. International terrorism occurs primarily outside the territorial jurisdiction of U.S. Situations with international terroristic groups conducting terrorism at the territory of U.S. are also considered to be international terrorism. Due to FBI, domestic terrorism is the same thing with the same purposes, conducted by the group of people within the U.S. jurisdiction (The FBI, 2015).

Difference between voluntary and involuntary manslaughter is not as big as both these acts are committed due to person being in high-emotional condition. The most common example of voluntary manslaughter is person killing his/her spouse or a lover when witnessing a betrayal. Thus the voluntary manslaughter can be identified as killing person in a rage or under the other strong emotion (Findlaw, 2015). Involuntary manslaughter tends to be committed due to the same reasons, but the victim in such situation is not the straight target of rage or other emotion. In such cases, a person who is under strong feelings simply can’t control its everyday actions (Findlaw, 2015). He/she may not have a desire to kill, but due to stress, person creates a dangerous environment which leads to death of other people (very often victims are complete strangers). People who …
