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.”
