    There's never a shortage of nut jobs. Glad he was caught now before he could have done a whole lot of damage.

    According to authorities, Young has been with the Metro police since 2003 and has been monitored regularly by the FBI, working with Metro police, since 2010.

    He told law enforcement at one point that he had traveled to Libya twice in 2011 to join a revolt against strongman Moammar Gaddafi, who was later killed by rebels.

    A Washington, D.C., Metro Transit police officer who was a convert to Islam and once dressed up as Jihadi John for Halloween was charged on Wednesday with trying to provide material support to ISIS -- the first time a law enforcement officer has been charged with an ISIS-related crime.

    The criminal complaint connects Young to two convicted Washington, DC-area terrorist sympathizers, Zachary Chesser and Amine El Khalifi.

    As police searched Young's townhome in Fairfax on Wednesday, neighbor Dina Ahmad described Young as standoffish. He had occasional run-ins with the homeowners' association over his cluttered front lawn, she said.

    He often worked on his car at late hours, and the car was adorned with anti-Israel bumper stickers, she said.

    "We knew something was weird about him," Ahmad said. "You just kind of got that creepy vibe off of him."

    During one conversation with an undercover officer, Young said if he was ever betrayed by someone, "that person's head would be in a cinder block at the bottom of" a lake.

    He praised the 2015 Paris terrorist attacks at the Bataclan music hall and elsewhere, as well as the earlier Charlie Hebdo attacks, the document said.

    Young tells an undercover officer he is aware he is under surveillance.

    Young tells an undercover officer he “used to torture animals when he was a child,” Budding anti social!

    A judge has ordered a one-week delay in the trial of the first law enforcement officer in the U.S. ever to be charged with a terrorism offense. Jury selection was scheduled for Tuesday in federal court in Alexandria, Virginia. Nicholas Young was a police officer in the region's Metro system when he was arrested last year in a government sting.

    Judge Leonie Brinkema ordered the delay after defense lawyers asked for more time to review a new batch of evidence.

    Jury selection begins today in federal court in Alexandria, Virginia, in the case against Nicholas Young, who was a police officer in the region's Metro system when he was arrested last year in a government sting.

    Prosecutors say Young bought nearly $250 in gift cards he intended for the Islamic State group, giving the cards to an individual who turned out to be an FBI source.

    Young's lawyers say the sting amounts to entrapment after their client was under surveillance for six years.

    Documents show Young had been under surveillance since 2010.

    Former police officer argues FBI pushed him to support terrorism

    Prosecutors say that Nicholas Young is a dangerous believer in not just radical Islam but neo-Nazism.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/loca...812230-deaf-11e7-8679-a9728984779c_story.html

    “Nicholas Young was a police officer, sworn to uphold the law,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Gordon Kromberg said in his opening statement Monday, but instead helped a man he believed was trying to join the Islamic State. “Young didn’t arrest [his friend], he didn’t report him, but he said, ‘Let me give you some advice.’ ”
