A quick definition of domestic terrorism:

Domestic terrorism is when people use violence or threats of violence to scare others and influence politics within their own country. It can also mean when people attack their own government or fellow citizens. Cyberterrorism is a type of domestic terrorism that involves using computers to harm others. International terrorism is when people commit acts of terror outside of their own country or across borders.

A more thorough explanation:

Domestic terrorism is a type of terrorism that happens within the United States. It involves using violence or threats of violence to intimidate people and cause fear, especially for political reasons. This can include attacks on people, buildings, or other targets.

For example, the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995 was an act of domestic terrorism. Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols used a truck bomb to destroy a federal building, killing 168 people and injuring hundreds more. They were motivated by their opposition to the government and its actions.

Another example is the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017. White supremacists and neo-Nazis gathered to protest the removal of a Confederate statue. Violence broke out between the protesters and counter-protesters, resulting in injuries and one death. This event was considered an act of domestic terrorism because it involved using violence to intimidate people and advance a political agenda.

Domestic terrorism can be carried out by individuals or groups, and it can target the government or other citizens. It is a serious threat to public safety and security, and law enforcement agencies work to prevent and respond to these types of incidents.

i've heard great things about UVA! I visited upenn and hated it so much / felt so uncomfy there and the starbucks by campus got robbed while i was there waiting for my tour to start lol
@OptimisticOutlier That sounds terrible, I'm sorry you had to experience that lol. Can I ask what made you feel uncomfortable? Like the sketchy vibes of the city or like the camp\us itself etc.?
penn is in a nice area
right next to drexel
it was campus itself, honestly i can't explain what it actually is. I felt the same way when I was touring schools for undergrad, pretty much pulled up to upenn and told my mom i knew i didn't like it and didn't need to take the tour lol
would argue with the nice area piece lol i think all of philly is kinda scary, someone pulled a gun on my team while we were down for a football game at upenn and walking around at night
but that said, i'm pretty happy i moved to pa after school and i know lots of people love upenn!
