Harrisburg teen accused of Islamic State support
A Pennsylvania 19-year-old pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group, used Twitter to spread its propaganda and had a backpack with ammunition that suggests he might have been plotting an attack, federal authorities said Thursday.
Jalil Ibn Ameer Aziz, of Harrisburg, was arrested Thursday and charged with two counts of attempting to provide material support to terrorists. He had an initial court appearance and will be held pending a detention and preliminary hearing next week.
Court documents said a "go bag" or "tactical-style backpack" found in Aziz's closet during a Nov. 27 search contained a high-capacity magazine loaded with ammunition, a modified kitchen knife, a thumb drive, a tin filled with medicine and a full face mask similar to those worn by Islamic State militants. Aziz may have been "preparing to conduct or assist others in conducting an attack in the United States," according to a criminal complaint.

Does anyone else see that this is ridiculous. He hasn't actually committed a crime, yes he may have supported Isis and that's his option but other than that I don't see any crime. I'm not supporting Isis I'm not here saying that at all all I'm saying is he has the right to support them even if everyone else disagrees. To me this is just yet another way the government is trying to come in and take over. What reason did they have for searching his place and finding said "weapon's", a modified kitchen knife and a single magazine of high capacity ammo. If they went in and found a bomb or a armory I would say OK that's a good enough reason to try to charge him. My main concern is how long will it take for the government to decide that they will start doing the same thing to people who support anonymous.
>He has used 57 different Twitter accounts — all traced to the home he shares with his parents — to advocate violence, encourage people to fund jihadist groups and express a desire to travel to territory controlled by the Islamic State group, the complaint said. Aziz would create a new account each time Twitter suspended him for violating its terms of service, court documents said.
>Aziz has also tried promoting himself online as "someone who can facilitate travel on behalf of ISIL," said the complaint, using an acronym for the Islamic State group. In one case, Aziz passed maps and a phone number between someone in Turkey and several well-known members of the Islamic State group, according to the complaint.
>He allegedly posted a link containing the names, addresses and other identifying information of 100 reported members of the U.S. military and called for violence against them.
This is who you're defending? Why?
>the KKK is still a thing
Nigga I grew up in bum fuck South Carolina, and I'm telling you, there is no KKK. If I have had 0 interaction with them in my lifetime, you can bet the only place you'll ever see them is a "rally" (with 12 people), or on the internet.
So it's an open secret that this whole domestic ISIS thing is basically just the same old "edgy teen/young person shoots up location because fuck you Kevin from 3rd period geometry class", but in a burka instead of a trench coat?
Why are we acting like this is something brand new then? Because the veneer of motive is different? It's just Columbine but now in hummus and falafel flavor.
Because ISIS is a group those other crimes were done alone by the individual, plus this person was helping ISIS and giving them information that could help them, this is new because it's pretty much a recruitment into a terrorist organization.
