The American Terrorist: Everything You Need to Know to be a Subject Matter Expert

Speaker: Dr. Terry Oroszi
Date: January 16, 2019

Dr. Oroszi, member of the Dayton Chapter Infragard, is returning as a guest speaker to update our audience on the American Terrorist. For the last four years Oroszi has been collecting data on American citizens (men and women) charged with acts related to terrorism, since 9/11. For each terrorist she researched the following variables and discovered patterns in the data:

  • Age at time of crime (M/F)
  • Allegiance to Domestic Organizations
  • Allegiance to International Organizations
  • Awlaki Influence
  • Cells/Partners
  • Citizenship Type (Birth/Nat)
  • Convert to Islam
  • Crimes Involving Violence
  • College Education (STEM)
  • FBI involvement
  • Gender
  • Have Children
  • Marital Status
  • Mental Health
  • The Military Terrorist
  • Official Charges (Top 12)
  • Parent’s Birth Country
  • Prison Location
  • Profession
  • Residence at time of crime (City/State)
  • Sentencing
  • Social Status
  • Terrorist Training Camps
  • The Terrorist’s Target
  • Top Ethnicities of American-Born Terrorists
  • Weapons Used
  • Year of Crime (Timeline)

Come with your preconceived ideas about American Terrorists and be prepared to have some of them proven inaccurate. Leave knowing the real, statistically proven demographics, so that you can speak with authority on this emotional and controversial topic.

In her presentation she will work through the 8-marker profile of American Terrorists she created based on her research. Statistically, the risk of being victim to an act of terror is quite small, but the fear of terrorism is inescapable. The 8-marker profile will give power to the community (coaches, teachers, family members) to identify at-risk individuals and will offer tools to steer them away from becoming radicalized.

The presentation will conclude with a focus on Ohio terrorists and will compare them with the national averages.
