Was Laurie Dann a terrorist?

If all it takes to be a terrorist is to do something big and scary, does that mean anyone who has committed any kind of mass murder is a terrorist?

  • If it is politically driven then yes! the term “terrorism” means premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or clandestine agents; From U.S. Code Title 22, Ch.38, Para. 2656f(d)

  • I would say yes. He was angry at the government.

    Did you even read the question? Laurie Dann was a woman who tried to poison a bunch of people, then went and shot up an elementary school outside Chicago.
