The NYPD and FBI nabbed three Brooklyn dudes who were plotting to ruin everyones lives and/or summers by plotting to bomb Coney Island. The wannabe jihadists, who also planned on joining the Islamic State and threatened to assassinate President Obama, were captured on Wednesday. Two of the suspects are expected to be arraigned in Brooklyn Federal Court.
The trio were planning to join ISIS by “flying to Turkey in a vain attempt to evade detection,” FBI Assistant Director in Charge Diego Rodriguez told the Daily News. But detected, they were, thanks to blabbing to informants about some highly scary intentions.
“I will just go and buy a machine gun, AK-47, go out and shoot all the police,” one suspect, 19-year-old Akhror Saidakhmetov, allegedly told an informant. “We will go and purchase one handgun … then go and shoot one police officer… boom! Then we will take his gun, bullets and a bulletproof vest … then we will do the same with a couple of others. Then we will go to the FBI headquarters, kill the FBI people.”
Ack. Another suspect, 24-year-old Abdurasul Juraboev, not-so-sneakily posted online that he was targeting Obama because of the President’s support for Israel. “What I’m saying is, to shoot Obama and then get shot ourselves, will it do? That will strike fear in the heart of infidels,” he wrote. Yikes.
