Criminal Justice Quote: Americans Fear Terrorist Attacks at Sochi Olympics

….[According to a recent survey of U.S. citizens] 57 percent said a terrorist attack on the Sochi Games was likely. That compares with the 51 percent who believed before the 1996 Summer Games started in Atlanta that a terrorist act would occur. Sadly, the latter prediction proved true….[The poll] found that 54 percent have an unfavorable view of Russian President Vladimir Putin, making him one of the least popular foreign leaders among Americans….[Only 54 percent see Putin in an unfavorable light?]
