Medaille Professor Discusses Lackawanna Terror Arrest on Local TV and Radio
Steven MacMartin, director of Medaille’s bachelor's degree program in homeland security and a clinical assistant professor at the College, appeared in-studio on WBEN-AM radio on July 30 to discuss the arrest of a Lackawanna, New York, resident on charges of attempting to provide material support to a designated terrorist organization. MacMartin has also spoken about the arrest with WKBW-TV and WIVB-TV.
During his radio appearance, MacMartin discussed the complex issue of radicalization. In this specific case, federal authorities believe the suspect attempted to join the terrorist organization ISIS.
“Radicalization is a very complicated topic,” he said. “I think it’s a popular misconception that radicalization targets the unintelligent, the person living in poverty or the mentally ill. Radicalization is a process that’s seeking different target switches in people. There are lots of people out there who have a grievance, or a perceived grievance, that are a danger to become radicalized.”
He cautioned listeners to remain vigilant in their communities, and to report any suspicious behavior to authorities: “I don’t think we should let our guard down. If you see something, say something. This is an example that things like this can happen in your own backyard.”
The latest book from Medaille assistant professor Dr. Matthew H. Bowker was released in February.
