US soldier arrested in Hawaii for alleged ties to ISIS, FBI says

An active duty Army soldier was arrested over the weekend by the FBI in Hawaii on terrorism charges for allegedly providing material support to the Islamic State terror group, officials said.

Ikaika Kang, 34, was arrested late Saturday night by an FBI SWAT team at the Schofield Barracks in Honolulu, the FBI said in a news release. 

Kang was with the 25th Infantry Division. The FBI believes that Kang was a lone actor, and that he is not associated with others who may present a threat to Hawaii.

"Terrorism is the FBI's number one priority," FBI Special Agent in Charge Paul D. Delacourt said in a statement. " In fighting this threat, the Honolulu Division of the FBI works with its law enforcement partners and the Joint Terrorism Task Force. In this case, the FBI worked closely with the U.S. Army to protect the citizens of Hawaii."

Kang has been under investigation by the U.S. Army and the FBI for over a year, according to Delacourt.

A criminal complaint filed Monday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Hawaii alleges that Kang swore allegiance to ISIS, attempted to provide military documents to ISIS, and attempted to provide training to the terrorist organization

Kang is currently in federal custody, and will make an initial appearance in federal court on Monday. 

Officials have sealed off the door of Kang's apartment as part of the investigation, Hawaii News Now reported.

Hopefully if guilty he will never see the light of day.

DAMN,   Looks like any other normal High School kid.    What drives these kids to resort to turning to terrorists.     

I remember being young and dumb and wanting to revolt against "the establishment".  But not to the degree of turning towards terrorism or betraying my country.

Try him for treason and hang him. Or, firing squad. Doesn't matter to me, either way. 

He's a piece of shit traitor, in my book.

Of course, there is no possibility that Fox News, or the FBI may be wrong?

They have never, ever, got anything wrong in the past?

No need for a trial to determine if this guy is guilty?

Who needs law and legal systems anyway? Waste of taxpayers time and money!

Don't y'all miss them good ol' lynch mob days?

 

Given some recent ruling by  our judicial system skepticism of a logical decision can be very understandable

So, who is to be believed then?

You? ...  some un-named Skeptics? .. LinC posters?

If (as you are implying) the US judiciary is incompetent then the US has some pretty serious problems to deal with.

Meantime, mob rule?

You're right, we are in trouble - our courts have become more and more liberal -  as I said look at the recent rulings  - on civil liberties are prime examples, even had a SCOTUS judge makes jokes about making laws from the bench not interpreting  them.

Unlikely that any country has a perfect judicial system.

Or anything else perfect for that matter.

But is the solution .... assumed guilt (without trial) and punishment according to uninformed public opinion?

Mob rule?

I think he will be tried in a Military court, and if found guilty, be confined to Ft Leavenworth.

Hopefully no nation!

My comments are not targeted at nations.

But are in response to posters who show support for such extrajudicial methods.

Anyone who, apparently doesn't believe in laws and  "the right to a fair trial"
