Rochester Man Charged With Planning Attack on Behalf of ISIS

 

A 25-year-old man in Rochester has been arrested and charged with preparing to stage a New Year’s Eve machete attack on diners at a local restaurant on behalf of the Islamic State.

 

The man, Emanuel L. Lutchman, is accused of gathering knives, a machete, ski masks and zip ties as part of his plan to raid the restaurant and possibly kidnap someone, taking advantage of what a self-identified Islamic State member overseas described as his position “behind enemy lines.”

 

Mr. Lutchman appeared in federal court in Rochester on Thursday on a charge of attempting to provide material support and resources to the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, as he pursued a goal of eventually joining the terrorist organization overseas.

 

Good Job by those involved with stopping this before it took place.

When I was in NYC I couldn't help but wonder about all the stuff that was going on that I didn't know about. Such a massive place and so many people. I feel like there was a continuous siren in the background the entire time that I was there

NYPD has their own in-house version of the FBI and CIA, as well as anti terror special forces like units known as Hercules Teams that are constantly roaming the city.

I seen a couple of things that made me think to myself "I wish I knew what those guys are up to". But then again, I love stuff like that.
