Accused NYC terrorist’s boss was subject of mystery Homeland Security probe

The Paterson, NJ address found on the ID of the terrorist who killed eight people on October 31, 2017 on a Tribeca bike path is associated with a July, 2017 terrorist investigation.

Neighbors report that Sayfullo Saipov never lived at the address given, but that it had been part of a Homeland Security probe this summer, investigating the trucking company that employed Saipov. The trucking company is registered as doing business at the same Illinois Avenue address on Saipov’s license, federal documents show.

The FBI is investigating, reports Erin Banco in the NJ Advance Media.

Rylie Golgart wants to be known as a survivor, not a victim

Eighteen-year-old Rylie Golgart wants to be known as a survivor, not a victim. She was shot in the back at the Las Vegas Route 91 Harvest Festival, one of the youngest people wounded there, reports Shakala Alvaranga in Las Vegas Now. Rylie is now receiving treatment at a spinal institute in Colorado.

The Terry Farrell Firefighters’ Fund organized a benefit to raise funds for Rylie, who is the daughter of a police officer and the stepdaughter of a firefighter. The Farrell Fund, named for a firefighter killed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks, helps firefighters in many ways.

The NYPD Aviation Unit is cracking down on illegal drones, investigating as many as 10 reports daily, reports Joseph Ostapiuk in the Staten Island Advance.

Drones flown illegally can be potential terrorist threats and put the many aircraft in metropolitan airspace at risk.
