How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Boston Police Captain Faced Dilemma When Dealing with Son’s Growing Extremism

Terror Plot Officer's Son

Alexander Ciccolo

Boston Police Captain Robert Ciccolo faced a dilemma when he became concerned that his son may pose a danger because of his growing extremism.

His son, Alexander Ciccolo, was mentally ill and began talking about joining ISIS and fighting in Iraq and Syria, WBUR reports. Although his son hadn’t committed a crime, Capt. Ciccolo took the news to the FBI.

Now his son is charged with plotting to detonate a bomb at an unknown university following an FBI sting.

“Obviously, he struggled with him, and he couldn’t set him straight,” said Boston Police Commissioner William Evans. “So maybe getting locked up was the best thing. Maybe now he’ll get the medical care he needs.”

The son’s attorney thinks the father had a better alternative.

“This is a kid who should have been involuntarily committed in a mental hospital,” said defense attorney Harvey Silverglate, of Cambridge, Mass. “He would have been no danger to society. He would have been no danger to himself.”
