Intimidation is the use of force or superior power to discourage people from certain activities or thoughts, or to enforce other activities or thoughts against their will. Intimidation may be physical or psychological and may relate to a wide range of situations. It induces fear, apathy and alienation, reinforces barriers to progress and facilitates exploitation.
Terrorizing is threatening to commit any crime of violence or dangerous act or falsely informing another that a dangerous situation exists with the intent of keeping another person in sustained fear, causing evacuation of a building, facility or transportation means, or causing serious other public inconvenience. This includes phone and mail threats as well as bomb scares.
