As if Flint needed anymore trauma.
June 21, 2017 By Tim Wiley
This morning, (click here) law enforcement officers from a number of organizations, including the FBI’s office in Flint, Michigan, responded to Flint’s Bishop International Airport after receiving the report of a stabbing of an airport police officer who is presently considered to be in stable condition.
The suspect was taken into custody at the airport and is currently being questioned by law enforcement officers.
The FBI, with our local, state, and federal law enforcement partners, is jointly investigating this incident to determine the nature and motive for the attack. We are aware of reports that the attacker made statements immediately prior to or while attacking the officer, but it is too early to determine the nature of these alleged statements or whether or not this was an act of terrorism.
Based on the information that we have at this time, we believe this to be an isolated incident. We currently have no specific, credible information that there is a threat to the Flint community.
If you have any information about this incident, please call the FBI’s Detroit Field Office at (313) 965-2323 or submit information at tips.fbi.gov.

It seems to me increasingly second generation immigrant Americans and now a Canadian are identifying with the suffering of the impoverished in the USA. I hope this is more about an air flight as Flint, Michigan itself. The Orlando killer was sympathetic with minorities in the club. They were allowed to leave the building while he assassinated others. It is a 'thing.' People are feeling it and acting on it.
The attack Wednesday at Bishop International Airport in Flint, Michigan, is being investigated as an act of terrorism, but authorities have no indication at this time that the suspect was involved in a "wider plot," said FBI Special Agent in Charge David Gelios. "At this time we view him as a lone-wolf attacker," Gelios said. "We have no information to suggest any training."... Ftouhi is charged with committing violence at an airport....
