Illinois Police Stop Keaun Cook From ExecutingTerrorist Attack

Godfrey, Illinois – Keaun Cook was arrested on charges of providing material support for terrorism and making a terrorist threat.

Keaun Cook was described by Madison County’s state’s attorney, Tom Gibbons, as a dangerous individual who was planning a “mass casualty event.”  Cook planned to kill multiple people throughout the country, possibly in multiple locations.

County Sheriff John Lakin advised that police became aware of the threat on August 24th after deputies did a welfare check at the home of Cook’s grandmother. Due to the pending trial, Lakin did not go into specifics about how they received the information. However, Cook’s grandmother did provide two letters to police where she stated that Keaun Cook suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and had been acting strange for quite some time. Within the letters, she informed police that Cook had spent more than 300 days in isolated confinement at a county detention center. She believes that the center did not treat her grandson for his condition and left him in solitary confinement with no help; further contributing to his mental illness.

“When he’s on his medicine he is the sweetest person you know, when off like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,” she wrote.

Although she wanted to provide help to her grandson, she advised the media that she would never have called 911 if she knew that the police would get involved and take custody of Cook. If she had failed to report Cook’s behavior, she potentially could have very well led to the deaths of numerous innocent victims.

“I’m very proud to stand here today and say that we stopped an event that could have caused a very, very, very serious situation,” Sheriff John Lakin stated during a press conference.

The investigation is currently still ongoing therefore, many of the details of this case have yet to be released, but thanks to the swift action of Sheriff John Lakin’s deputies and Madison County’s state’s attorney, Tom Gibbons, a possible major terrorist fueled attack on innocent American lives was prevented.

    what did the grandmother think was going to happen when she called 9-1-1?
    it says: she would never have called 911 if she knew that the police would get involved and take custody of Cook.
    Glad no one was hurt and glad he’s off the streets.
