‘Do Terrorists Have Goatee Beards?’ Contemporary Understandings of Terrorism and the Terrorist

  • James W. McAuley
Part of the Palgrave Studies in Political Psychology Series book series (PSPP)


On 5 February 2005, the Washington Post revealed the latest image of terrorism in the United States. It took the form of Edgar Morales (a.k.a. ‘Puebla’), a member of the Mexican ‘St James Boys’ street gang, resident of the Bronx and described as about five feet tall with a goatee beard and dressed in baggy clothes. Morales had been arrested following the fatal shooting of a ten-year-old bystander after the outbreak of inter-gang violence at a Church christening in August 2002 and was later convicted of attempted murder, manslaughter, possession of dangerous weapons and conspiracy to murder.
