Clearly a Law Enforcement Approach to Terrorism Can’t Work
NYPD and the FBI busted an apparent homegrown terror cell in the stages of plotting to blow up two synagogues in the Bronx. As someone who used to occasionally hang out in Riverdale — the northwest Bronx Jewish neighborhood in question — I have no shortage of four-letter words for these anti-Semites, and congratulations to the law enforcement officials for a job well done. Should the four men be found guilty of anything like what the criminal complaint against them charges, they’ll be justifiably sentenced to a long time in a federal prison, which is magically capable of incarcerating dangerous felons.
How long until we hear speculation from conservatives that these guys would have succeeded in their murderous rampage had they been exposed to ex-Guantanamo detainees in prison?
