N.Y. College Student Arrested for Alleged ISIS-Inspired Terror Plot

June 18, 2015  | 

The FBI has arrested a New York City college student, accusing him of plotting to carry out some kind of unspecified terror-related attack in New York, reports NBC News.

The student, Munther Omar Saleh, age 20, is a U.S. citizen living in the borough of Queens, and authorities say he was searching the Internet, looking for information on how to acquire knives, guns, or components that could be used to help build a bomb.

He was arrested last Saturday, after he confronted law enforcement officers who were conspicuously tailing him.

When he was arrested, the FBI says, he was carrying a Smith & Wesson folding tactical knife.

There's no suggestion in court documents that he had actually acquired any explosives or formulated a plan.

Investigators say they began paying attention to him in late March, after he was twice seen walking around on the George Washington Bridge.

This is where the art of profiling comes in so handy however our President does not want law enforcement to profile because they might violate someone's civil rights and actually catch him or her before they can do damage.
