[Ed. – The Flint, Mich. story that didn’t get much national attention]
Amor M. Ftouhi, 51, of Quebec, Canada, was found guilty of three crimes, including an ‘act of terrorism transcending national boundaries’, in conjunction with an attack on a Bishop Airport officer in Flint, Michigan on June 21, 2017.
“Ftouhi conducted research in Canada and entered our country with a plan to obtain a weapon and kill American police officers. With today’s guilty verdict, he will be held accountable for his brutal knife attack on an airport police officer in Flint,” said Assistant Attorney General Demers. “I want to thank the prosecutors and law enforcement partners who made this result possible. The National Security Division remains committed to holding accountable all who seek to carry out terrorist attacks on our soil and target our men and women in uniform.”
“Investigating and prosecuting terrorists remains the Justice Department’s highest priority,” stated U.S. Attorney Schneider. “The Assistant United States Attorneys who prosecuted this case to trial, as well as our federal and state law enforcement partners, worked tirelessly to investigate this case and bring this would-be murderer to justice.”
