    Twenty-five year-old Robert Lorenzo Hester Jr. was arrested Friday in Columbia, Missouri and charged with attempting to give support to ISIS. Hester believed he was participating in a President’s Day terror attack in Kansas City which would be 10 times more deadly than the Boston marathon bombing. From the Kansas City Star:

    “First on social media, then during face-to-face meetings with an undercover FBI employee, this defendant repeatedly expressed his intent to engage in acts of violent jihad against the United States,” U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Missouri Tammy Dickinson said in a written statement. “He believed he was part of an ISIS-sponsored terrorist attack that would result in the deaths and injuries of many innocent victims,” she added, using a common acronym for the Islamic State.

    KPLR St. Louis reports the investigation into Hester began with a tip about things he was saying on social media:

    The FBI first became of aware of Hester in September 2016 following confidential sources informing them of troubling social media posts. The indictment said Hester used multiple online aliases, including “Mohammed Junaid Al Amreeki,” “Junaid Muhammad,” “Rabbani Junaid Muhammad,” “Rami Talib,” and “Ali Talib Muhammad

    The terrorists are accomplishing their goals---to show that folks aren't safe anywhere. The heartland is threatened, as well as the east and west coast.

    Good for the FBI-they caught him before he could hurt or kill anyone. Maybe the FBI has infiltrated the internet enough to really make progress toward preventing our own loons from finding help online to commit acts of terror and mass violence. And catching them when they try to contact ISIS.
