Does Gang Violence Count as Terrorism?
What exactly constitutes terrorism? What makes a person a terrorist? While there may not be a clear legal definition, a New York court has ruled on what is not.
FOX News Radio’s Lisa Brady reports:
When someone opened fire at a christening party in the Bronx, prosecutors argued the gunman was trying to terrorize the neighborhood’s Mexican-American community, and the gunman was convicted in the killing of a 10-year-old bystander and wounding of a rival gang member under a terrorist law enacted after 9/11.
Now, New York’s Court of Appeals has ordered a new trial for Edgar Morales, saying the terrorism theory likely prejudiced the jury, and that there’s no indication the law was intended to elevate gang violence to terrorism status.
