As a special agent of the Counterterrorism Task Force, you get a call at home to respond to the municipal airport in Centervale. You are asked to talk to a terrorist suspect.
The individual claims to have planted several bombs throughout the airport. The individual has also threatened to take his own life along with the lives of the passengers who have boarded the aircraft, using grenades strapped to his body, if the authorities don’t accept his demands. He demands one million dollars in unmarked bills and a plane ride to Aruba.
By the due date assigned, in a minimum of 250 words, post to the Discussion Area your response to the following:
- How would you respond to this type of scenario?
- Should you negotiate with this individual? Why?
- Discuss the type of risks that this type of threat would pose to the airport patrons?
- Discuss the short-term and long-term consequences of a bomb detonation at an airport?
Through the end of the module, read all of your fellow students’ postings and respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts.
