Son of Boston police captain allegedly involved in terror plot

July 13, 2015

The son of a Boston police captain was an ISIS supporter who planned to set off an improvised explosive device and was arrested after illegally purchasing four firearms on July 4, according to a Justice Department press release and MyFoxBoston.

Authorities say 23-year-old Alexander Ciccolo, who also went by the name Ali Al Amriki and posted about martyrdom on Facebook, spoke about setting off an explosive device “in places where large numbers of people congregate, such as college cafeterias.” He was seen purchasing a pressure cooker similar to the kind used by the perpetrators of the Boston Marathon bombing.

Ciccolo’s father reported his son to the FBI after noticing suspicious behavior, according to MyFoxBoston.

    Terrorists are victims of what they believe, making victims of those who do not believe as they do. Freedom is not believing what they believe. There is no stronger argument for the Judeo-Christian heritage than this!

    I’ll have to say his dad made a tough decision to report his son, but I’m sure he realized his son was lost. And turning him in will bring him less harm than leaving him like a loose cannon. The dad is a hero in that he saved many innocent lives.

    What is the matter with these people? How can anyone sympathize with ISIS and plan to kill and hurt their own countrymen? I guess this kid has mental issues ( obviously) and could get up to 10 years. I think he should be declaired insane and put away for good. A lighter sentence for treason, right? I feel badly for his parents.
