When it comes to any act of terrorism, who is considered the direct and indirect victims?
Questions that need to be looked at while watching the documentary on “Mug Shots: Timothy McVeigh”
We talked about how we sometimes have to overlap Criminology with Victimology. With that
said we need to look at who Timothy McVeigh was and describe what his childhood was like as
well as his adulthood.
• His military experiences and leaving with Gulf War Syndrome AKA PTSD….what is it and
did it possibly play a role in his actions.
What was his motive behind the bombing
Did he act alone or did he have outside influences that may have backed his cause.
What 2 critical events triggered McVeigh to seek revenge against the government?
o Why did he pick the Murrah Federal Building?
Who were his intended victims? Did he care that there were going to be innocent
civilians as possible victims?
Was McVeigh viewed as a victim? How and Why? Should we as Americans view him as
How was he caught?
What was his sentence?
Is he still alive today?
Questions that need to be looked at while watching “Heroes and Victims of Oklahoma City Bombing”
Are first responders indirect victims of a terrorist attack? If so, how?
Was the picture taken of the police officer, fire fighter and deceased baby portrayed properly in
the media?
How did the media spin the story using the picture and did they do it ethically?
How did that picture affect the people in it?
How did they cope with being “Famous” for doing their job?
How was the mother of the baby treated by other victims?
What type of treatment is needed to overcome the psychological distress brought on by
experiencing this terror and do you think people actually overcome it?
Do some research and look into how Oklahoma City responded to the victims of that terrorist attack.
How did they handle the trial of Timothy McVeigh along with the media coverage? This was the first
time we as Americans had a terrorist attack on our soil by an American citizen. How did that change our
view on safety and response to these types of attacks? Did we learn anything that could have helped us
respond better to 9/11 or did we never expect to experience another attack on our own turf?
