NYC Terror Plot Arrest Photo Tweeted by Mayor's Office
The @NYCMayorsOffice Twitter account posted this Cops-like image (with an odd text overlay) this afternoon, presumably to show the public the most action-packed part of taking down Ahmed Ferhani, who bought firearms and a hand grenade from an undercover cop in an alleged plot to blow up a synagogue. Something about the image seems overly celebratory considering the man has not yet been tried in a court of law. Related: "Were the Newburgh 4 Really Out to Blow Up Synagogues? A Defendant Finally Speaks Out." Just saying! [h/t Capital NY]
