This paper will seek to explain and discover if there is any correlation between what the general public thinks of religious extremists as related to terrorism. First, it needs to be deter-mined if there is a history of any religious belief, media, or social influence to affect the public’s idea as to what a religious extremist is and does, whether positive or negative. Second, it needs to be determined if the public has a positive view of religious extremists (as related to terrorism). Finally, it needs to be determined if law enforcement (local, state, federal) either does a great job at educating the public sector about religious extremists or if law enforcement needs to be edu-cating more so as to avoid confusion or fear by the public in regards to misinformation related from any other source.
