MSNBC Moving Al Sharpton From the Weekly Dayside Lineup to Sunday Mornings

THE REAL QUESTION IS WHEN WILL AL SHARPTON’S LAST SHOW BE, PERIOD!

The Politico is reporting that Al Sharpton and his unwatchable show, ‘PoliticsNation,’ will be moved from its daily spot to Sunday morning. Sharpton stated in an interview,  “I never wanted to be a weeknight pundit. I wanted to be a Sunday morning newsmaker. I wanted to be Dr. Martin Luther King, not Larry King.” Note to Reverend Al, you are neither, you are a race baiter and race profiteer.

MSNBC should have admitted their mistake and just dumped Al altogether. Sorry, but is his is not watchable. Now his new show will be shown at Sunday morning at 8, because that is a big time viewership time slot.

Al Sharpton is leaving MSNBC’s weekday dayside lineup, and moving to Sunday mornings.

Sharpton’s last weekday “PoliticsNation” will be Sept. 4. He moves to Sundays a month later on Oct. 4, according to a memo sent to MSNBC staff by the channel’s president Phil Griffin Wednesday evening.

“I want to congratulate Al and his team. For four years they have done a terrific job bringing his voice and a big spotlight to issues of justice, civil rights and equality. And as many of you know, The Rev never missed a show,” Griffin wrote in the email. “I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do with a Sunday morning newsmaker program.”

This means that Sharpton will only air for one hour a week, rather that been seen 5 times a week on a daily basis. I guess for that we should say thank you to BSNBC. This is all a part of the shakeup at MSNBC in an attempt to get ratings that actually can be measured.

Police Dash-Cam Video in Connecticut Debunks College Professor Minati Roychoudhuri’s Claims of Racial Profiling

OH THOSE PESKY DASH CAMS …  LIAR, LIAR, PANTS ON FIRE.

32 year old Minati Roychoudhuri, a college professor at Capital Community College, in Hartford, CT, accused the Connecticut state police of racial profiling after she was pulled over on May 9, 2015 in Weathersfield. However, her ticket she was given stated her vehicular citation was for failure to drive in the established lane. Of course in the attack police at all chances and call them racist environment, Roychoudhuri sent a letter to the Commissioner of Public Safety claiming that the officer had racially profiled her. As it turns out, the incident was caught on the police dash-cam that proved the 32 year old community college professor was lying through her teeth. Roychoudhuri was subsequently arrested for giving a false statement in the second degree.

minati-roychoudhuri

Not too smart for a college professor … hopefully the kids she teaches are more honest

A college professor who accused a Connecticut state trooper of racial profiling saw her claims fail when audiotape of the stop proved she was lying, police said.

According to Fox CT, Minati Roychoudhuri, 32, was driving on a highway on May 9 when she was pulled over in the town of Wethersfield. She was cited for failure to drive in the established lane. A month later, Roychoudhuri sent a letter to the Commissioner of Public Safety claiming that the officer had racially profiled her.

“The policeman asked me if I could speak English and if I knew why he had stopped me. I said, “yes” to speaking English and “no” to why he had stopped me,” she wrote in the letter. “The officer did not give me any reason as to why had stopped me. His asking if I could speak English shows that he had racially profiled me and was not able to give me a concrete reason for stopping me.”

When Roychoudhuri, who teaches at Capital Community College, in Hartford, gave an in-person interview in regards to her letter a week later, she repeated her claims of racial profiling and that the officer did not explain why she was stopped. She also signed a statement that it is a crime for her to make any claims that she does not believe to be true in an effort to mislead a public servant.

Read the transcript of the dash cam video HERE.

Officer: Hi ma’am, do you know why I’m stopping you today?
Roychoudhuri: No
Officer: OK. There’s that big gore area with white lines painted across it and you cut in front of it, in front of me, thinking it’s a lane or something. You have to wait until it’s a dotted white line. License and registration.

New York Times/CBS News Poll: Nearly 60% of Americans Think Race Relations Are Bad Under Obama

Remember when Barack Obama was elected and people said that it would make black/white race relations better … Hows that Hopey/Changey stuff working out for you America?

In 2008 many Americans, including many whites with liberal white guilt, elected Barack Hussein Obama because they thought it would ease race relation in the United States and some how correct the evils of slavery and past racism and discrimination. However, some seven years later and any thought of black/white race relations getting any better are out the window. According to a recent New York Times/CBS News poll, nearly six in 10 Americans, including heavy majorities of both whites and blacks, think race relations are generally bad. In fact, nearly four in 10 think the situation is getting worse. During Mr. Obama’s 2008 campaign, nearly 60% of blacks said race relations were generally bad, but that number was cut in half shortly after he won. However, it has now soared to 68%. But although blacks think race relations are worse, they could not find it in them-self to say that Obama has done a poor job with race relations. Imagine that. However, under Obama he has brought the racial pressure cooker to the brink and his taking of of one side has been on display for 7 years. It has become evident that with Obama, only black lives do matter, as he can only see himself as Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, rather than his half white side of murdered Kathryn Steinle. Too bad that Obama is supposed to be the leader of all, not just some.

As Instapundit opines, this is Obama’s true legacy.

Obama Divider

Seven years ago, in the gauzy afterglow of a stirring election night in Chicago, commentators dared ask whether the United States had finally begun to heal its divisions over race and atone for the original sin of slavery by electing its first black president. It has not. Not even close.

A New York Times/CBS News poll conducted last week reveals that nearly six in 10 Americans, including heavy majorities of both whites and blacks, think race relations are generally bad, and that nearly four in 10 think the situation is getting worse. By comparison, two-thirds of Americans surveyed shortly after President Obama took office said they believed that race relations were generally good.

The swings in attitude have been particularly striking among African-Americans. During Mr. Obama’s 2008 campaign, nearly 60 percent of blacks said race relations were generally bad, but that number was cut in half shortly after he won. It has now soared to 68 percent, the highest level of discontent among blacks during the Obama years and close to the numbers recorded in the aftermath of the riots that followed the 1992 acquittal of Los Angeles police officers charged in the beating of Rodney King.

Wake up America, this is what happens when you elect a community agitator who’s entire presidency has been based on racial divide and class warfare. In many respects, the only reason why Obama was ever voted into office, especially among white voters, was because of the notion that he would some how make race relations better. It certainly was not because he was qualified to be president. However, how many times must you be reminded, its not about the color of one’s skin, it is about the content of their character.

Kid Rock Tells People that are Protesting Him & Al Sharpton’s Action Network Demanding He Denounce the Confederate Flag to “Kiss His Ass”!!!

LAST TIME A CHECKED THIS WAS STILL AMERICA, KID ROCK IS CORRECT, THEY CAN KISS HIS ASS …

We have now reached critical mass insanity when a flag becomes more important and to blame for all the ills of racism and what has happened to blacks in this country, than the individual and vile acts of people and the liberal laws and policies that have caused blacks to be forever dependent on the government.  Personally, I could care less about the Confederate battle flag, I am from the North. That being said, what is up with the bullying over demanding that private citizens of the United States be forced to do something, or else?

Al Sharpton’s National Action Network has publicly called on Kid Rock to denounce the Confederate flag and stop using it during his performances, claiming the flag is a racist symbol. Kid Rock responded to the group’s request in a statement that Fox News host Megyn Kelly read on the air Wednesday night, well read most of. Kid Rock said …  “Please tell the people who are protesting to kiss my ass”. 

It looks like Kid Rock’s ‘First Kiss’ Summer tour might (VIDEO) just become the “Kiss My Ass’ one instead.

Good for Kid Rock, some one has to stand up to these race-bating bullies. The Detroit chapter of National Action Network (NAN), the NYC based group founded by the Rev. Al Sharpton, also sent a letter requesting a meeting with Mary Barra, CEO of General Motors, which is sponsoring Rock’s summer tour. So if Kid Rock wont kneel down to these fools, they are going to look to extort and harass his sponsors. How unlike Al Sharpton. All these clowns got is some cutely phrased words calling Kid Rock, a home town Detroit hero who is a hero with the Confederate flag. Really? Just curious, when was the last time Kid Rock even used a Confederate flag in concert? Does it even matter to these people?

The Rev. Charles Williams II, who heads the Detroit activist group, insisted that GM withdraw its support from Rock, saying the flag represents racism and hatred.

Rock told the Free Press in 2002 that he used the flag during that year’s tour as a nod to Southern rock and a rebel spirit. It’s unclear how recently Rock has displayed Confederate flag imagery in concert, but some fans have told the Free Press it has not appeared onstage in several years, including Rock’s current tour.

UPDATE I: A note to these idiots who would go after a flag because its easy to deflect attention away from their own failings to their people and the liberal politics that has devastated and destroyed the city of Detroit over the years. To show you how misguided and how absurd all of this is, in 2011 Kid Rock received the organization’s Great Expectations Award, honoring him for his advocacy of Detroit city. He did so by attending with his teenage son Robert Ritchie Jr., who is black, the 56th Annual NAACP Fight for Freedom Fund Dinner at Cobo Hall on May 1, 2011 in Detroit, Michigan. Note to all, it was the NAACP who gave Kid Rock this award and guess what, he was using the Stars and Bars back then as well.

UPDATE II: Don’t forget that Kid Rock played in Washington, DC celebrating the inauguration of President Barack Obama in 2009. No one seemed to care of his use of of the Confederate flag back then. However, since then Kid Rock has basically called Obama a disappointment and a failure as the country has never been more divided. Hey Kid, that is what community agitators do.

Louis Farrakhan Says, “We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag”

I know this is difficult for many of you to say and admit, Rush Limbaugh was right.

It did not take Louis Farrakhan long to prove conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh correct regarding the LEFT going after the American flag next. In an interview with WMAL, Louis Farrakhan stated “We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag”. This hateful race-baiter went on to say, “They Don’t Give a Damn About Them 9.? Just days earlier Rush Limbaugh said, “And I’ll make another prediction to you. The next flag that will come under assault, and it will not be long, is the American flag.”

Hmm, who is spewing the hate?

Louis Farrakhan stated “We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag” in remarks before the Metropolitan AME Church in Washington, DC on Wednesday first reported by DC’s WMAL.

Farrakhan said, “White folks march with you because they don’t want you upsetting the city, they don’t give a damn about them nine.”

He added that when the police took suspected shooter Dylann Roof to Burger King they were saying “You did a good job. Kill all them [bleep.]”

Later, he declared, “I don’t know what the hell the fight is about over the Confederate flag. We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag,” comments that were meant with cheers and applause.

C’mon LEFT, c’mon Media Matters, c’mon race-baitors, says it … RUSH WAS RIGHT!

eBay to Ban Sale of Confederate Flag Merchandise … Really, They Missed A Lot and They Seemed to Have Forgot to Remove the 2008 Hillary Clinton Campaign Buttons

This is what the slippery slope of censorship looks like … Its one thing for a State not to fly it at the Capitol, but now comes the purge of all things with the Confederate flag.

The hypocrisy of Hillary Clinton and the Confederate Flag …

It would appear that eBay has jumped on the band wagon to ban the sale of Confederate flag merchandise. According to eBay spokesperson Johnna Hoff, “We have decided to prohibit Confederate flags, and many items containing this image, because we believe it has become a contemporary symbol of divisiveness and racism.” REALLY? Because as of this morning, a simple search on eBay of “Confederate flag” brought up over 10 pages, 50 items on each page, of Confederate flag merchandise. So what is next, pretending like Civil War never took place and the scrubbing of Southern history?

I personally think slavery was one of our darkest hours in the United States and this existence of racism and bigotry is reprehensible; however, I find the exploitation of a heinous crime disgusting as well. This country has made great strides from the days of slavery, more so than many other countries where it continues today. I am not a fan of the Confederate flag, I am not from the South, I am more of a “Don’t Tread on Me” flag fan. But how long will it be before that symbol offends people? Hell, we have people in this country that are offended by the American flag, Old Glory.

Hillary Clinton_Confederate Pin

How About this One?

hillary Clinton alabama-pin

Even Hillary Clinton chimed in on South Carolina’s removal of the Confederate flag from the Capitol building, but maybe Hillary would like to discuss her 2008 Hillary Clinton campaign buttons with the Confederate flag on them complete with Stars and Bars. By the way, that button is for sale on eBay. Oh, but that’s different, that was 8 years ago, what difference does it make. Right? In the video below Hillary Clinton said, “recognizing  it as a symbol of our nation’s racist past, that has no place in our present or our future.” Did she feel that way when Bill Clinton signed a Law Honoring Confederacy in Arkansas Flag?  Then comes Hillary’s anti-free speech comment, “It shouldn’t fly there, it shouldn’t fly anywhere.” Sorry folks, as long as people are allowed to burn the American flag as an example of free speech, flying a Confederate flag has to be allowed as well. You don’t get to allow one and not the other.

Hillary Clinton Says she appreciates the removal of Confederate Flag, but what about her campaign buttons?

eBay will ban the sale of Confederate flag merchandise, the auction site announced Tuesday, in a decision that follows in the steps of major retailers like Walmart and Sears.

“We have decided to prohibit Confederate flags, and many items containing this image, because we believe it has become a contemporary symbol of divisiveness and racism,” eBay spokesperson Johnna Hoff said in an email to CNN. “This decision is consistent with our long-standing policy that prohibits items that promote or glorify hatred, violence and racial intolerance.”

Hoff added that the company continually monitors and evaluates its 800 million products on its site to ensure that they are “consistent with our core purpose.”

The company’s decision mirrors that of Walmart and Sears, which have also removed Confederate flag products from their stores.

The controversial flag has come under intense scrutiny following a racially motivated mass shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, that left nine African-Americans dead in a historic church. On Monday, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley also called on the Confederate flag to be taken down from the state’s capitol grounds.

Rachel Dolezal Resigns from Spokane NAACP

STEPPING DOWN …

Rachel Dolezal, the woman who faked her racial identity, has resigned as the president of the NAACP Spokane chapter. Rachel Dolezal portrayed herself as a black woman; however, she was outed by her parents as being white. Much of her past was made up. Her estranged parents told reporters last week that she is “Caucasian by birth,” with Czech, Swedish, German and a trace of Native American ancestry, even though she has been representing herself as black for years. The revelation that the Spokane NAACP chapter president was in fact white only had one conclusion. THIS WAS IT. You pretty much knew the handwriting was on the wall when Dolezal was scheduled to address the matter at a chapter meeting on Monday night, but the meeting was postponed.

So how much of this resignation was internal pressure? They can say all the right things externally, but as one can plainly see from the VIDEO below, there were some if not many who were openly upset that a white woman dare pass herself off as black. The activists stated, “I am sorry, you may not copy ‘MY’ people’s struggle.”  So why is it being reported that she faked her racial identity, rather than she feels like she is a black woman? Hmm, isn’t that bigoted?

Dear Executive Committee and NAACP Members,

It is a true honor to serve in the racial and social justice movement here in Spokane and across the nation. Many issues face us now that drive at the theme of urgency. Police brutality, biased curriculum in schools, economic disenfranchisement, health inequities, and a lack of pro-justice political representation are among the concerns at the forefront of the current administration of the Spokane NAACP. And yet, the dialogue has unexpectedly shifted internationally to my personal identity in the context of defining race and ethnicity.

I have waited in deference while others expressed their feelings, beliefs, confusions and even conclusions – absent the full story. I am consistently committed to empowering marginalized voices and believe that many individuals have been heard in the last hours and days that would not otherwise have had a platform to weigh in on this important discussion. Additionally, I have always deferred to the state and national NAACP leadership and offer my sincere gratitude for their unwavering support of my leadership through this unexpected firestorm. [...]

It is with complete allegiance to the cause of racial and social justice and the NAACP that I step aside from the Presidency and pass the baton to my Vice President, Naima Quarles-Burnley. It is my hope that by securing a beautiful office for the organization in the heart of downtown, bringing the local branch into financial compliance, catalyzing committees to do strategic work in the five Game Changer issues, launching community forums, putting the membership on a fast climb, and helping many individuals find the legal, financial and practical support needed to fight race-based discrimination, I have positioned the Spokane NAACP to buttress this transition.

UPDATE I: NAACP Statement on the Resignation of Rachel Dolezal.

From Cornell William Brooks, NAACP President & CEO:

“The NAACP is not concerned with the racial identity of our leadership but the institutional integrity of our advocacy. Our focus must be on issues not individuals. Ms. Rachel Dolezal has decided to resign to ensure that the Spokane branch remains focused on fighting for civil and human rights. This resignation today comes amidst the real work of the NAACP and the real challenges to our democracy. (more)

Rachel Dolezal, NAACP Leader & Civil Rights Activist Outed as White By Her Parents … Accused of Falsifying Race (VIDEO)

HMM, JUST CURIOUS … IF ITS OKAY FOR BRUCE CAITLYN JENNER TO GO FROM A GUY TO A GIRL BECAUSE HE SHE FEELS LIKE ONE, WHY IS IT NOT OKAY FOR A WOMAN TO GO FROM WHITE TO BLACK?

Wouldn’t that be something if Rachel Dolezal, Washington states most prominent civil rights activist and president of the Spokane NAACP was white? So says Rachel Dolezal’s parents who have outed their daughter as being white. Her biological parents claim she is misrepresenting “major portions of her life,” including being born white. Her parents say that their daughter “is primarily German and Czech and of European descent.” Dolezal dismisses the controversy as little more than an ugly byproduct of family dysfunction.

This gives playing the race card a whole new meaning.

Rachel Dolezal

Controversy is swirling around one of the Inland Northwest’s most prominent civil rights activists, with family members of Rachel Dolezal saying the local leader of the NAACP has been falsely portraying herself as black for years.

Dolezal, 37, avoided answering questions directly about her race and ethnicity Thursday, saying, “I feel like I owe my executive committee a conversation” before engaging in a broader discussion with the community about what she described as a “multi-layered” issue.

“That question is not as easy as it seems,” she said after being contacted at Eastern Washington University, where she’s a part-time professor in the Africana Studies Program. “There’s a lot of complexities … and I don’t know that everyone would understand that.”

Dolezal is credited with re-energizing the Spokane chapter of the NAACP. She also serves as chairwoman of the city’s Office of Police Ombudsman Commission, where she identified herself as white, black and American Indian in her application for the volunteer appointment, and previously was education director for the Human Rights Education Institute in Coeur d’Alene.

In recent days, questions have arisen about her background and her numerous complaints to police of harassment. Members of her family are challenging her very identity, saying she has misrepresented major portions of her life.

Interesting. Of course there are some legal issues of knowingly falsifying your race on job applications, especially if they are government ones. However, the real test will come if it is determined to be true that she is white and not bi-racial as Rachel Dolezal claims. Will the NAACP do the racist and bigoted thing and fire her from being president of their Spokane, WA chapter? Does one have to be black to be an NAACP president? Wouldn’t that be racist and against federal laws of job discrimination? James Wilburn, former president of the Spokane NAACP chapter said that Dolezal’s race was not what had qualified her for the position in the organization. Really, we shall see.

 City’s NAACP leader accused of falsifying race.

Her parents, Ruthanne and Larry, live in a rural home in Troy, Montana. Her father described a young Dolezal as blonde, blue-eyed and freckled-face.

“No way to get around it,” he said. The couple say their daughter is pretending to be someone she’s not.

“Rachel has wanted to be somebody she’s not. She’s chosen not to just be herself but to represent herself as an African-American woman or a biracial person,” Ruthanne said.

A serious question has to be asked … if Bruce Jenner can become Caitlyn Jenner and celebrated as some cause celeb because he feels like he is really a woman, why can’t Rachel Dolezal make the claim she is a black woman trapped in a white woman’s body? Seriously, what’s the difference? If a man can think he is a woman because he feels so, why can’t a white woman be a black one, or vice-versa? Sorry, but the LGBT opened Pandora’s Box.

Rev. Ronald Wright of Justice Seekers Texas Warned Americans That a Domestic Terror Attack is Coming “And the Group is Not Going to be ISIS, It’s Going to be USIS”

DID THIS BLACK ACTIVIST PASTOR JUST THREATEN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WITH A DOMESTIC TERROR ATTACK?

In the aftermath of the out of control pool party in McKinney, Texas caught on VIDEO, the subsequent police reaction to the mob of unruly kids, the protests  and the resignation of the police officer Eric Casebolt comes the following disgusting, race-baiting and UN-Holy comments from Rev. Ronald Wright of Justice Seekers. Really, is this type of race-baiting rhetoric really necessary?

“We’re setting the stage for a terrorist attack in this country. And the group is not going to be ISIS, it’s going to be USIS, us against these unjust law officers and people who continue to allow racism to grow into this city.”

 Rev. Ronald Wright, executive director of Justice Seekers Texas, warned of ISIS-style terror attacks in America from “us” because of “unjust law officers and people who continue to allow racism to grow into this city.” Where is his aarrest for making a terrorist threat? They forgot to mention is their mission statement, focusing on Domestic Terror attacks from USIS.

Founded February 2010  a newly formed Civil Rights and Social Justice Organization which focuses on Civil Rights and Social Justice (for all citizens), Education, Health, Employee Rights, Veterans Affairs, Domestic Violence, Juvenile Delinquency/Recidivism, Assisting ex-felons with employment opportunities, Rights of the incarcerated, probationers, and parolees.

Terror Suspect Usaama Rahim, Shot Dead By FBI & Boston Police After Refusing to Drop Military-Style Knife (Update: Brother of Boston Imam Ibrahim Rahim, Claims Brother Shot in Back)(Update: Second Suspect David Wright [Dawud Sharif Abdul Khaliq] Arrested)

WILL THE LEFT AND LIBERAL MSM CALL THIS AN UNJUSTIFIED TERRORIST SHOOTING, WHAT’S NEXT, DO TERRORIST LIVES MATTER?

An armed individual, being tracked by Boston police and the FBI counterterrorism unit was shot dead yesterday in Roslindale, MA when he refused to drop his weapon, a military-style knife, and came at police in an aggressive manner.  The man shot was the 26 year old brother of Boston Imam Ibrahim Rahim, who claims he was shot 3 times in the back. For the record, The Boston Globe reports that Usaama was shot twice, once in the chest and once in the stomach. Also police sources state, Usaama had been radicalized by ISIS propaganda and may have been preparing an attack on law enforcement.

From the Jawa Report, the family of Usaama is crying racism and Islamophobia and claiming Usaama was ‘shot in the back’. Usaama was a grievance hustler’s twofer. Imagine that, a completely different story from a criminal and in this case an individual being tracked by counter-terrorism. Wow, will this give rise to #Terrorist Lives Matter?

An armed man in his 20s being surveilled by the FBI counterterrorism unit was shot and killed by an FBI agent and a Boston police officer in Roslindale this morning, according to Boston Police Commissioner William Evans.

“He was on foot, under surveillance,” Evans said. “The officers have been surveilling him and again they wanted to speak to him … and he turned and our officers gave several commands for him to drop the weapon and unfortunately he came at the officers and they did what they were trained to do and that’s never an easy decision for any officer to make.”

One FBI agent and one BPD officer fired, FBI Special Agent in Charge Vincent B. Lisi said.

Evans said the suspect was wielding a large military-style black knife that he could have “done a lot of damage” with.

“I think our officers tried their best with the FBI to try to convince him to put down the knife but he didn’t leave us a choice,” Evans said. “It’s an active investigation with the joint terrorism task force … It’s very fluid it’s ongoing, but we have one male shot and as you can see it is a very active scene.”

The Boston Globe – Man shot in Roslindale was under 24-hour surveillance.

Usaama Rahim, 26, had made threats against law enforcement, according to two law enforcement officials with knowledge of the case. Officials declined to explain what had led to the ongoing antiterrorism task force investigation or detail its scope, although they said it had been going on for a while.

“We believed he was a threat,” Boston Police Commissioner William B. Evans said. “He was someone we were watching for quite a time. The level of alarm brought us to question him today. I don’t think anybody expected the reaction we got out of him.”

Rahim allegedly wielded the knife after being approached on Washington Street in Roslindale by task force members. Evans said the officers did not have their guns drawn when they approached.

UPDATE I: Man arrested in Everett in connection with terrorism investigation.

A man was arrested in Everett in relation to a Joint Terrorism Task Force investigation.

In Everett, police blocked off Linden Street, unsettling neighbors, and officers entered a home there late Tuesday afternoon.

Just after midnight, authorities confirmed that they arrested David Wright, who will face federal charges in court on Wednesday. Officials said the investigation was potentially an “ISIS inspired plot to harm law enforcement officials.”

UPDATE II: Boston terror probe widens after police arrest suspect.

A Massachusetts man is in custody in connection with Tuesday’s shooting of a man police say was radicalized by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) propaganda, reports CBS News correspondent Jeff Pegues.

Police led the man, David Wright, out of an Everett home late Tuesday, linking his arrest to the terror investigation of Usaama Rahim.

Just 14 miles away, investigators say, Rahim had pulled out a knife and waved it at officers in Boston. Moments later, police fired, shooting and killing him. He was under 24-hour surveillance at the time he was killed.

“We believed he was a threat,” Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said.

Evans says the shooting was caught on nearby surveillance cameras, and the video shows police guns weren’t drawn at first.

UPDATE III: Police seek third person in Usaamah Rahim’s Boston terror plot.

Rahim, 26, and Wright, 25, were apparently tight — Rahim called him his nephew on Facebook, where he thanked him for attending his wedding. Both of them used aliases on Facebook. Rahim went by “Abu Sufyaan” and referred to Wright as “Dawud Sharif Abdul-Khaliq.”

And they spoke in coded language, too, the FBI said, but Rahim’s meaning in recorded phone conversations with Wright seemed obvious to agent Joseph Galietta, who listened in.

Rahim would come out swinging with a knife soon to kill police officers — probably Tuesday, Wednesday at the latest, Galietta said in an affidavit.

“I’m just going to, ah, go after them, those boys in blue. Cause, ah, it’s the easiest target,” Rahim told Wright, according to the affidavit.
