Mini-Quiz: Reasons for Attacks

by Ron Kurtus (updated 23 November 2022)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. What brought about the "going postal" expression?

Numerous cases where postal employees went on killing rampages at work

Situations where people sent threatening post cards to others as revenge

A person who was a mailman by day and a serial killer by night

2. Why would a person advocating a peaceful cause harm another person?

They are usually paid to stamp out opponents

Fanatics often irrationally justify their actions 

That would never happen

3. Why are thrill-seekers difficult to stop?

They may shoot the victim, if recognized

They are usually teens who can run fast

Their acts are random, without cause and difficult to predict

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Security. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
