Need help with my Law question – I’m studying for my class.

1.We in the United States have very present what it is to be a victim or target of domestic terrorist and transnational terrorist. I believe that many of the mass shootings that have happened here in the United States are acts of terror. Specially the one that happened here in El Paso, Tx. Having someone travel from across the state to target certain people I would consider that a domestic terrorist attack. The difference between terrorist and organized crime is the political views that are involved. Criminal Organizations do not have a political view that strive the organization to do what they are doing. They both are looking for power and plant fear in the people but in different ways. Narco-terrorism is the trade of narcotics internationally.

2.Both terrorism and organized crime have many similarities as they are there to cause harm and terror amongst the public, they both have agendas but both also have differences and different agendas from one another. Organized crime is exactly that organized in which they specialize in dealing drugs, human trafficking and any other crimes you can think of, they run at a business level with different tiers of responsibilities from the head man or woman that runs the operations to the simple run of the mill ground hand in finding recruitment and dealing drugs making money for the business. Terrorism is both foreign and domestic meaning that it can happen by its own countries citizens and citizens from other countries. They usually have a political agenda in which they want to cripple the country in a way so devastating that the country may or may not be able to recover. In a way organized crime can be considered terrorism as they may not have a political agenda but they will and will try to do everything in their power to make money to support their business like function.
