2 years ago, Hipster icons the Tsarnaev brothers attacked the Boston marathon. It tuns out they were linked to a radical mosque in that town. Now another Jihadi related incident has occurred in Boston. Boston Police attempted to arrest Usaama Rahim for his involvement in a potential terror attack. He charged at the cops with Knife and was rightfully shot as a result. Now an associate of Rhaim, David Wright has been arrested and also accused of being linked to ISIS.
A Massachusetts man is in custody in connection with Tuesday’s shooting of a man police say was radicalized by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) propaganda, reports CBS News correspondent Jeff Pegues.
Police led the man, David Wright, out of an Everett home late Tuesday, linking his arrest to the terror investigation of Usaama Rahim.
Just 14 miles away, investigators say, Rahim had pulled out a knife and waved it at officers in Boston. Moments later, police fired, shooting and killing him. He was under 24-hour surveillance at the time he was killed.
Federal law enforcement sources say Rahim had been on joint terrorism task force radar for several months, but in recent weeks they began tracking him around the clock.
Sources tell CBS News Rahim and Wright were communicating with each other about attacks in the U.S., which is why Wright was arrested. Authorities continue to search for other people both Rahim and Wright were communicating with, the sources say.
Wright is expected to appear in federal court in Boston Wednesday, according to Christina Sterling, a spokesperson for U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz.
In the aftermath of the failed attack in Garland, Texas, the FBI increased surveillance and investigations of closed cases and perceived low priority threats.
Recent intelligence bulletins have warned about homegrown violent extremists influenced by ISIS’ online propaganda, which has been urging attacks against law enforcement and military targets.
First the Tsarnaevs and now the incident involing Usaama Rahim. What is going on in the city Boston, that these Jihadists are located there? I suspect the Islamic Society of Boston is a Jihadi front group and helping to encourage these incidents. Kudos to Boston PD for killing this Jihadist savage.
