Steve MacMartin ’13, director of Medaille’s bachelor’s degree program in homeland security and a clinical assistant professor at the College, discussed the July 22 Toronto shooting during an appearance on WBEN-AM radio.

He told WBEN hosts Susan Rose and Brian Mazurowski that even though the general public might see the event as a terrorist attack, authorities are hesitant to apply the label: “There are a whole slew of reasons not to mislabel something. It gives people the wrong impression, it may create an undue atmosphere of fear. Acts of terrorism have to be responded to in a little bit different of a way than criminal acts.”
