Boston Police Captain’s Son Sentenced for Plotting ISIS Attack. What His Father Says is Heartbreaking.

It can be chilling to learn what is happening right under our noses.

Within a week of the FBI arresting the four adults behind the New Mexico terrorist training camp for children, a Boston Police Captain’s son was sentenced to 20 years behind bars for plotting a large-scale attack on behalf of ISIS.

While the terrorists in New Mexico were foreign-born, however, this young man was American-born and fully committed to the cause of the Islamic state, which should tell you something about just how capable IS is of indoctrinating angry young people around the globe, even right here at home.

Tragically, it was Cpt. Robert Ciccolo himself who first alerted authorities of his sons’ possible plans.

The Daily Wire reports:

Boston police captain’s son was sentenced to 20 years in prison on Wednesday for plotting a terrorist attack for the Islamic State (ISIS) with firearms and homemade bombs on an unidentified university in New Mexico.

The terrorist, who gave himself an Arabic name that translates to “Ali the American,” pleaded guilty in May to terrorism charges, including attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization and attempting to use weapons of mass destruction, ABC News reports.

Authorities describe the thwarted terrorist as a “committed soldier” of ISIS who wished to inflict “maximum damage.”

In a statement, Hank Shaw, the special agent in charge of the Boston FBI office, stressed that the terrorist “was a committed soldier of ISIS who wanted to kill innocent people at a United States university with assault rifles and pressure cooker bombs, not an unwitting dupe who didn’t understand the gravity of what he was doing.”

The man was contacted by undercover FBI agents after his father, Cpt. Robert Ciccolo, alerted authorities about his son’s desire to fight for ISIS in Syria.

Undercover FBI agents then contacted the suspect, who discussed plots to attack several targets in New Mexico, including a university, a police station, and a gay-friendly bar. He was arrested on July 4, 2015, after accepting two rifles and two handguns from the undercover agents.

It’s very good to know this man is behind bars, and that there are men in blue who are so committed to their line of duty they would make such a difficult decision to turn their own children in.

Cpt. Ciccolo, however, says that that’s simply what he’s been trained to do:

Capt. Ciccolo started to have concerns about his son after he heard him talk about traveling to Syria to fight for ISIS. The captain calls his decision to alert the FBI “heartbreaking,” but says he “understood that he could be preventing harm to innocent people.”

“I’m a cop. You can’t tell me you are going to commit crimes and expect me to take no action to prevent it,” Capt. Ciccolo said.

Let’s keep the Ciccolo family in our prayers in what must surely be a very difficult time.

Minnesota is once again on fire, this time due to the death of Daunte Wright at the hands of now-former police officer Kim Potter. Potter pulled her gun on Wright, but meant to fire her taser. Is the MSM asking why Potter was forced to pull out a weapon in the first place? Meaning, what actions did Wright take that made Potter act? Wright couldn’t have been resisting arrest, right? He was completely compliant…right!?? It’s all a moot point, now. And the Gopher State will continue to burn. From Fox News: Daunte Wright, the 20-year-old Black man shot by a police officer in a Minneapolis suburb Sunday afternoon, had an open warrant for his arrest related to an aggravated armed robbery attempt when he was killed, according to court records. Wright and another man, identified as Emajay Maurice Driver, a high school acquaintance, had both been charged with first-degree aggravated robbery in a December 2019 incident in Osseso, Minnesota, Hennepin County District Court documents obtained by Fox News show. Here’s a little bit more, but CLICK THE Fox News LINK ABOVE TO READ THE WHOLE STORY!! JUST DO IT! Around 2:30 a.m., two women at the home told Wright and Driver they needed to leave, but the two men said they did not have a ride, the documents say. The women reportedly allowed Wright and Driver to spend the night. In the morning, one of the two women left the apartment to get $820 in cash to pay the other for rent. After paying the rent, she left for work. […] Wright then allegedly choked the woman while trying to pull the cash out from under her bra, where she had tucked it away. https://twitter.com/_mattmckinney/status/1382362210702290952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1382362210702290952%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-brooklyn-center-police-officer-to-be-charged-with-2nd-degree-manslaughter%2F BLM and lefties are always, always, always defending criminals.

Dem-Controlled House Unveils ‘Court Packing’ Legislation, Want 13 Justices on SCOTUS

All politicians are crooked. That isn’t exactly a secret. But at least Republicans actually love their country. That’s a huge difference. Not great, but it’s something. These Democrats, though, only care about one thing. They crave it, in fact. Complete control. From Fox News: Democratic lawmakers are set to unveil legislation Thursday to expand the number of justices on the Supreme Court. More from The Intercept: The bill would add four seats to the high court, bringing the total to 13 from the current nine. The bill is led by House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler, Subcommittee chair Hank Johnson, and freshman Rep. Mondaire Jones. In the Senate, the bill is being championed by Ed Markey of Massachusetts. The number of justices on the Court, which is set by Congress, has fluctuated throughout the course of the nation’s history, reaching as many as ten seats before settling on nine in 1869. In 2016, Sen. Ted Cruz suggested that, if Hillary Clinton were elected, the Republican Senate should keep Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat empty, effectively bringing the number of justices down to eight. Republicans currently hold six seats, while Democrats hold just three. Republicans were able to solidify control of the Court under former President Donald Trump, after first refusing to advance Merrick Garland’s nomination under former President Barack Obama, and then confirming Justice Neil Gorsuch after Trump’s election. Then, after Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died in September 2020, Republicans threw out the procedures they had previously embraced and confirmed Justice Amy Coney Barrett in a matter of weeks. By expanding SCOTUS under a radically far-left president, socialists liberals will be able to ensure they get their way on every issue – all. the. time. That is, of course, GOD-willing, until a Republican gets back into the White House. If that…
