Denver—September 24, 2009 — No matter where a person lives, it can happen—a terrorist scare. The co-founders of Cyopsis discussed with Studio 12 host Steffan Tubbs last night on Channel 12, the arrest of Najibullah Zazi, a man arrested in Arapahoe County for his alleged involvement in terroristic activity.
Kevin Knierim, a former FBI agent, and his Cyopsis business partner Bill Taylor, stressed vigilance. A terrorist attack can happen anywhere and at anytime. Sports venues and fashion shows are a couple of places the public is being told to heighten their awareness.
“The reaction should not be fear, the reaction should be to educate yourself,” said Taylor.
A preliminary hearing set for today will determine if Zazi should be kept in custody or formally charged with giving a false statement to federal agents. The case can potentially switch gears if the grand jury in New York indicts the suspect. Stay tuned.
Last night’s program is available for free video-on-demand viewing on the KBDI-Channel 12 website at www.KBDI.org.
