Talking Terrorism with Troy Riggs

The Public Safety Director for the city of Indianapolis says that it does make a difference whether Monday’s explosions at the Boston Marathon were the results of domestic or foreign terrorism.

So far, three people were killed and nearly 200 injured in two explosions at the Boston Marathon.  Federal authorities are investigating.

Troy Riggs explains  that if the acts were a result of foreign terrorism, the perpetrators may be trying to flee the country, whereas if they were domestic terrorists, there is a greater sense of urgency by law enforcement to find them.

In his 12-minute interview, Riggs also discusses the steps the city is taking to remain safe and he also talks about the impact of social media such as Twitter in breaking the news as well as how it can be used to help solve the crime.
