FBI TERRORISM unit joins probe into cop stabbing in Brooklyn – report
The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force has reportedly joined the investigation into an attack on a NYPD cop amid massive riots in New York where one officer was stabbed and two more shot.
The federal agents were seen at the crime scene. They arrived at the apartment building where the suspect was living and apparently collected evidence in some other areas near the place of the violent confrontation, according to media reports.
The FBI also investigated the scene where the police earlier found “ACAB” graffiti — an acronym meaning “All Cops Are Bastards.” The graffiti reportedly could be related to an anti-brutality demonstration that took place in the area last weekend as America was gripped by massive protests over the death of George Floyd at the hands of the police.
