Law Enforcement Warning About ISIS And American Youth Sent Out

The FBI and Department of Homeland Security sent out a joint warning to law enforcement across the country last weekend concerning a growing trend of girls and boys wanting to fight with ISIS, according to CNN.

One official said there was no increase in U.S. government threat levels, although there is heightened concern lately about recruitment of American and other foreign fighters by Islamic State, also known as ISIS.

A DHS official, commenting on background, said the bulletin was issued “to provide further information on the continuing trend of Western youth being inspired by ISIL to travel to Syria to participate in conflict,” says Reuters.

The warning comes in the wake of the detention of a 17-year-old Northern Virginia teen last week, says a law enforcement official who has read the report.

The source says law enforcement is tracking “lots of cases” like that around the country and they’re growing increasingly concerned about the threat.

The warning lays out motivations for boys and girls to join ISIS.

Boys tend to be older when they leave to fight and be a part of foreign fighters, or they want to attack in the U.S.  Girls tend to be younger and have a fanciful notion of what life is like in Syria, and they often want to go over and be Islamic brides.


Odd: Local Station In Tennessee Says There Was An FBI Bulletin Regarding ISIS Terror Plot In Tennessee


The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Memphis Division reportedly warned police officers about a threat to blow up the Memphis-Arkansas Bridge sometime in December.

FOX13 News obtained the FBI bulletin sent to Mid-South Law Enforcement agencies warning about a possible Islamic State terror plot targeting the I-55 Bridge.

“According to an anonymous complainant, as of December 2014, ISIS instructed an ISIS member, a presumed USPER in Memphis, with a direct order to blow up the Memphis-Arkansas bridge on an unknown date, activating ISIS terror cells in the United States,” the warning reads.

USPER is a law enforcement acronym for U.S. person.

Described as “an unsubstantiated, anonymous threat,” the Federal Bureau of Investigation has warned authorities in Tennessee and Arkansas about a threat made by the Islamic State to blow up an expansion of the Mississippi River bridge that connects the two states.

The question remains: Why would a terror group choose a bridge between Arkansas and Tennessee?


NY Representative Grimm Convicted Of Felony Tax Charges

According to ABC News, after pleading guilty to a felony tax charge in federal court, Republican congressman Michael Grimm made it clear he has no plans to resign from office despite mounting pressure from Democrats.

Grimm pleaded guilty to a single count of aiding in the preparation of a false tax return in 2009 and agreed to pay an undetermined amount of restitution to the IRS and New York State on tax returns dating from 2007 to 2010.

Grimm faces a maximum sentence of three years in prison and is set to be sentenced on June 8 in arguably the highest-profile public corruption case in New York in decades.

Facing reporters after the hearing, Grimm owned up to making some “big mistakes,” explaining that he “underreported” sales receipts to pay business expenses, including compensating employees “off the books.”

“As a result, the taxes were inaccurate,” Grimm admitted. “It’s wrong…I should not have done it.”

Did A School In Alabama Hire An Ex-FBI Agent To Spy On Students?

Huntsville City Schools in Huntville, Alabama, seemed to be so concerned about what students were posting on their social media accounts that they paid a former Fed $157,190 a year (or $110 an hour) to spy on the students’ Instagram and Twitter accounts.

According to, the Huntsville City Schools paid the former agent, Chris McRae, to monitor its students over the past year through a program called SAFe, Students Against Fear. Six hundred of those students were flagged by students and teachers. McRae then examined their online accounts for “for images of guns or gang signs.” They also looked for evidence of drug use and mentions of sex. This led to the expulsion of 14 students.

Beyond a blatant attack on student privacy, critics are also saying that there was a racially motivated undercurrent to the expulsions through the spy program and throughout the system.

According to Huntsville City Schools records, the school expelled 305 students last year, 238 of whom were Black. So 78 percent of all expulsions involved Black children in a school system where they make up just 40 percent of students. And the of the 14 expulsions related to social media, 86 percent involved Black students.

Law Enforcement Problems In New Mexico

Law enforcement in New Mexico is having some problems.   

A man accused of shooting another man and sexually molesting a child in Albuquerque last year was an active U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration informer who was improperly supervised, a new lawsuit alleges.

The family of Jason Estrada recently filed a $50 million lawsuit against the U.S. DEA, the second suit in recent months alleging problems with the DEA’s handling of informants, the Albuquerque Journal reports.

Edward Quintana, 31, has been charged with killing Estrada. He also is charged with criminal sexual penetration of a child under 13.  He has pleaded not guilty in both cases and is being held on a $600,000 bond.


Albuquerque police said Estrada was killed when he confronted Quintana over the sexual assaults of a child.

A spokeswoman for U.S. Attorney’s Office in Albuquerque said the office had no comment on the lawsuit.

The lawsuit and attached documents show Quintana became an informant for the agency in 2011 after Bernalillo County sheriff’s deputies served a search warrant on his home and seized nine ounces of heroin, $12,000 and three loaded semi-automatic handguns.

Another lawsuit filed last month said DEA agents also paid a struggling addict in crack cocaine during an undercover investigation into a Las Vegas, New Mexico, drug operation.

Erlinda Ocampo Johnson, attorney for Aaron Romero, said the 38-year-old was unknowingly targeted during an undercover investigation because he was a struggling addict and did not know he was helping agents break up the drug ring.

A northern New Mexico sheriff who has had brushes with scandal throughout his career has been indicted for civil right violations and falsifying documents.

U.S. Attorney Damon Martinez announced Rio Arriba County Sheriff Thomas Rodella and his son, Thomas, Jr., were arrested in their Espanola home early Friday for their role in a March traffic stop that injured a motorist.

The indictment says the men engaged “in a high-speed pursuit and unreasonable seizure” of a motorist.  Court documents say the sheriff was not in uniform when he jumped out of his Jeep SUV armed with a silver revolver and assaulted the victim.  Martinez says both men then falsified documents related to the case.

Both men pleaded not guilty at an arraignment in U.S. District Court in Albuquerque.
