September 2017 - Advocacy

The theme of the third issue of 2017 is “The Pathology of Terror” and the Special Guest Editor is Dr. Michael Pollanen. We specifically used the word “terror” rather than “terrorism” to be more inclusive. Forensic pathology is involved in the evaluation of many acts involving “terror,” of which “terrorism” is certainly a subset. This is probably not a topic most people think about in terms of a type of pathology, but it certainly brings to mind special considerations pertaining to injuries in the setting of torture or the approach to dealing with a mass casualty event such as a terrorist act or genocide. 

The issue begins with an article discussing preparedness for mass fatality incidents. This is followed by a pair of articles discussing the forensic examination of the living and the autopsy examination of torture victims. We also feature an article about the pathologic examination of animal abuse. Another invited manuscript discusses the role of forensic pathologists in the evaluation of injuries sustained in armed conflicts. We then move on to specific instances of events of terror; specifically, Jamaica, Cambodia, South Africa, and the Jeffery Dahmer case. We also feature several unsolicited articles.

Finally, we have an invited editorial by Dr. Jonathan Hayes, who wrote a gripping account of his experiences after the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks. It is absolutely compelling and I urge every forensic pathologist to read it.
