Chicago Raid Similar to New York

"A friend says there is no way they could be caught up in anything terroism related"

Uh Huh.

Cops say it was similar to the case in New York. More bomb builders. Just Arab students practicing with their new chemistry set of course.

Glenda Johnson saw so many police and plain clothed federal agents on her block that she thought someone had been shot.

"The police was so crowded, you couldn't even walk past. They was in trucks, they was in cars, they was in regular cars. It looked like someone had killed someone," said Johnson.

That swarm of badges consisted of the FBI, Chicago Police and the Joint Terrorism Task Force. In their sights were two buildings on the 6300 block of North Artesian. People who live in a six flat there say the feds were very interested in its basement, specifically, two storage lockers.

A spokesperson for the FBI confirms a search warrant was executed at the building as part of an ongoing investigation. Glenda Johnson says an FBI agent made the search sound extremely urgent.

“They was looking for someone who lives in this building. So I was like ‘what's the cause?’ They said ‘we don't want to say yet, but it's a life and death situation.’ I was like ‘wow,’” said Johnson.

A source in federal law enforcement told Fox Chicago that the case is similar to one that unfolded in New York yesterday.


Ok. I am having a tech challenged type of day. Want to see the video? (you really should) go here

And, you know, if anyone out there smarter than me (a broomhandle would qualify most days) wants to try to embed this sucker, have at it :)
