BOSTON POLICE CAPTAIN’S SON PLEADS GUILTY TO ISIS BOMB PLOT:

[Alexander] Ciccolo, who went by the name Ali Al Amriki, pleaded guilty to all charges. His lawyer did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

Prosecutors say Ciccolo told the person cooperating with authorities that he planned to commit acts of terrorism to support the Islamic State group, including attacking an unidentified university using assault rifles and homemade bombs similar to the pressure cooker bombs used in the deadly 2013 Boston Marathon attack. The bombing at the marathon finish line killed three people and injured more than 260 others.

Ciccolo was seen buying a pressure cooker shortly before his arrest, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors say agents found partially made ‘‘Molotov cocktails’’ in Ciccolo’s apartment after he was arrested. Authorities say posts on Ciccolo’s Facebook page included a photo of a dead American soldier that said ‘‘Thank you Islamic State!’’

When your father is a police captain, whose job is to maintain order – to maintain civilization – what better way to say “screw dad” than to actively promote de-civilization?
