Is the “General Deterrence Theory” Up to the Challenge of Domestic Political Extremism?

This weekend, we remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice defending our freedom. In November of last year, OODA Network Member Brian Jenkins spoke to the OODA Network Member membership  on the threat posed by domestic political extremism. – which was followed by an OODA Network Q&A Session on Domestic Political Extremism and Violence.  We pull the string on these previous internal discussions here, exploring the role of recent convictions and sentencing as a general deterrent to extremism.  We also catch up with the latest research and findings from the Rand Corp., including an article by Brian Jenkins that warns against the inadvertent creation of martyrs.
