    I've been out since I posted about the stabbing at Bishop Airport. At the time, it was a local story with few facts beyond the initial report on WDIV. Over the past two hours, it's become apparent that this was not an isolated incident and may have wider implications. Thanks for updates.

    As part of the police investigation they will likely go to his Mom and Dads house and haul down to the police station his parents, brothers, sisters, friends etc and haul them all in for questioning.

    Even if none of them have any extreme ideals they will likely be interrogated and hauled down to the police station.

    To help stop these attacks, I think the media needs to advertise and publicize that and make sure it is known to future terrorists that they will be placing undue hardships to their own family and friends when they do this sort of thing.

    If we can make that very public and make sure they know this then maybe just maybe it will give the next potential radical second thoughts before they do this crazy insane thing.

    This has been the only thing I have been able to come up with to help slow the tide of this insanity.

    Well pretty much IMO if you're screaming Allahu anything you're a terrorist. They also say he was yelling about killing people in Syria, etc. I am just SO done with FGM, the radical imam, the Hezbollah scouts and probably a half dozen sleeper cells and various lone wolf radicals we probably have living here. I am about OUT of understanding and compassion for these people.

    The officer is extremely lucky, the knife was a 12-inch serrated knife.

    U.S. and Canadian authorities have launched a joint terrorism investigation into the stabbing.

    Ftouhi, whom the FBI described as being about 50 years old, entered New York state from Quebec on June 16 before making his way to Michigan.

    Moments before the FBI publicly named Ftouhi as the suspect, Montreal police swarmed a site in that city's east end.

    Earlier in the day, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Ralph Goodale said Canada condemns the "heinous and cowardly attack" and that the RCMP are co-operating with the FBI, which is leading the investigation
    Cherie Carpenter, who was awaiting a flight to Texas to see her new grandchild, told Flint TV station WJRT she saw the attacker being led away in handcuffs. She described the man in custody as appearing "blank, just totally blank.

    Amor Ftouhi, 50.

    Police in Montreal descended Wednesday afternoon on an apartment in the city's St-Michel neighbourhood in an operation connected to the stabbing of a police officer at Bishop International Airport in Flint, Mich., Radio-Canada is reporting.

    The operation targeted an apartment on Bélair Street that is connected to the suspect in the attack, who has been identified by U.S. authorities as Amor Ftouhi, 50.

    ITA. Well Dearborn will probably have more actions such as this (if it actually involved a terrorist act) to come out of the Michigan area, unfortunately. Glad the officer will be ok!
