It is not necessary to prove that the behavior was so violent as to cause terror or that the victim was actually frightened.Threat, criminal threatening (or threatening behavior) is the crime of intentionally or knowingly putting another person in fear of bodily injury.FTC spokesman Peter Kaplan declined to comment on the matter.Daugherty blames the defendants for destroying his business.Under that ruling, personal damage awards against federal workers are permitted when, in the course of their employment, they are found to have violated an individual’s constitutional rights.The 1988 Federal Employees Liability Reform and Tort Compensation Act protects federal workers from personal tort claims, but it doesn’t apply to suits alleging violations of the Constitution or federal laws."Use of force is justified when a person reasonably believes that it is necessary for the defense of oneself or another against the immediate use of unlawful force." Intimidation may be employed consciously or unconsciously, and a percentage of people who employ it consciously may do so as the result of selfishly rationalized notions of its appropriation, utility or self-empowerment.
