Annotation: THIS VOLUME CONTAINS STANDARDS AND GOALS THAT DEAL WITH VIRTUALLY EVERY FACET OF THE MATTER OF DISORDERS AND TERRORISM. THEY ARE AIMED AT CIVIL AUTHORITIES, POLICE, COURTS, CORRECTIONS, AND THE COMMUNITY.
Abstract: THERE ARE EXPLICIT PROPOSALS FOR TRAINING POLICE AND LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES IN PREVENTIVE MEASURES THAT CAN BE TAKEN AGAINST MASS VIOLENCE, FOR THE TACTICAL MANAGEMENT OF DISORDERS, AND FOR THE DETERRENCE OF TERRORISM AS WELL AS THE EVALUATION OF THREATS OF ACTS OF DISORDERS AND TERRORISM. THERE ARE VERY DETAILED PLANS THAT THE POLICE IN STATE AND MUNICIPALITIES WILL FIND MOST USEFUL DURING TIMES OF RIOTING OR OTHER EXTRAORDINARY SOCIAL UPHEAVALS. THE TASK FORCE HAS WRITTEN EXTENSIVELY ON THE ROLE THE COURTS SHOULD PLAY DURING AND AFTER SUCH OCCURRENCES, INCLUDING RECOMMENDATIONS ON HOW TO DEAL WITH TRIALS OF CASES ARISING OUT OF INCIDENTS OF TERRORISM. THERE ARE ALSO SUGGESTIONS FOR THE NEWS MEDIA TO FOLLOW IN THE REPORTING OF OCCURRENCES AND OF THE TRIALS THAT FOLLOW. THE NUMBER OF PRISON DISORDERS IN RECENT YEARS HAS PRODUCED A RESPONSE FROM THE TASK FORCE IN TERMS OF INSTITUTIONAL CONDITIONS AND CORRECTIONAL OBJECTIVES, PARTICULARLY WITH RESPECT TO PERSONS CONVICTED OF TERRORIST ACTS. THE APPENDIXES CONTAIN ARTICLES DEALING WITH AN OVERVIEW OF INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM, TERRORISM AND NEW WEAPONS TECHNOLOGY, AND TERRORISM IN ARGENTINA, CANADA, AND WEST GERMANY. THERE IS ALSO A CHRONOLOGY OF TERRORISTIC, QUASI-TERRORISTIC, AND POLITICAL VIOLENCE IN THE UNITED STATES, COVERING THE PERIOD FROM 1965 TO 1976, AND A 40-PAGE BIBLIOGRAPHY.
