Son Of Boston Police Capt. Charged With Plotting ISIS-Inspired Attacks On College Campus

BOSTON (CBS) — The son of a Boston Police captain is facing charges “in connection with a plot to engage in terrorism” on behalf of ISIS, prosecutors said Monday.

A criminal complaint was unsealed charging Alexander Ciccolo, also known as Ali Al Amriki, 23, of Adams, with being in possession of firearms. Ciccolo was arrested on July 4.

Sources told WBZ-TV Ciccolo’s father, Police Capt. Robert Ciccolo reported his son to the FBI. His son had previously undergone mental health treatment. The father and son are estranged.

“While we were saddened and disappointed to learn of our son’s intentions, we are grateful that authorities were able to prevent any loss of life or harm to others,” the Ciccolo family said in a statement.

United States Attorney Carmen Ortiz said Ciccolo told witnesses about his “plans to commit acts of terrorism” inspired by ISIS.

Those acts “including setting off improvised explosive devices, such as pressure cookers filled with black powder, nails, ball bearings and glass, in places where large numbers of people congregate, like college cafeterias.”

The affidavit said that before his arrest, Ciccolo bought a pressure cooker similar to ones used in the Boston Marathon bombings of April 2013.

Capt. Ciccolo was supervising more than two dozen officers in Kenmore Square during the Marathon bombings.

The affidavit also stated that Ciccolo originally planned to target a police station, but later decided to target a university. He planned to attack, “before Ramadan was over, and no later than July 31,” according to the affidavit.

“The attack would be concentrated in the college dorms and cafeteria, to include executions of students which would be broadcast live via the internet,” the report says. “If a student was Muslim, then they would be permitted to help, sit tight, or leave.”

Ciccolo’s arrest is the 55th in the U.S. this year linked to ISIS inspired terror plots.

This is the second plot foiled in Massachusetts this year.

In June, Boston Police shot and killed Usaamah Rahim when he confronted them with a knife. Investigators say Rahim plotted with another Massachusetts man and others to behead law enforcement officers.

The liberal elite ... know that the people simply cannot be trusted; that they are incapable of just and fair self-government; that left to their own devices, their society will be racist, sexist, homophobic, and inequitable -- and the liberal elite know how to fix things. They are going to help us live the good and just life, even if they have to lie to us and force us to do it. And they detest those who stand in their way."

Glad they stopped this madman before he injured or killed anyone.
