Since the Twin Tower Bombings in 9/11, the world has woken up to a frightening threat, that has manifested itself into the fears of people around the world. No longer does society feel safe like it once did, and the more Terrorist Acts are displayed on Television Screens, do we feel that Terrorism in general, is now part of our lives.
Terrorism Offences are also becoming more apparent in juveniles under the age of 18. We are seeing more and more cases of younger males being radicalised, and are being easily influenced to carry out Terrorism Acts of Violence on innocent individuals.
However, Terrorism is not just restricted to fundamentalist religious terrorist groups, Terrorism Crime can be seen inflicted by any person or group, without any religious affiliation, as we just witnessed in the atrocious Terrorist Act in Christchurch New Zealand earlier in 2019.
