A Rochester man accused of being an ISIS sympathizer planned to kill patrons at a Rochester restaurant/bar on New Year’s Eve, federal authorities allege.
Rochester Cancels Fireworks After Terror Plot Thwarted
The FBI has arrested a man it says was planning to launch an ISIS-inspired attack on New Year’s Eve in upstate New York.
Federal authorities accuse Emanuel Lutchman, 25, of plotting to attack revelers inside a restaurant-bar in Rochester. He has been charged with attempting to provide material support to ISIS.
The fireworks show in the city has been canceled in the wake of the terror plot, but festivities will continue to take place at the convention center, the city said in a tweet.
According to documents, Lutchman has a criminal history dating back to 2006. He describes himself as a Muslim convert.
Since November, Lutchman was allegedly communicating with three paid FBI informants, detailing what the FBI describes as his “strong support” for ISIS and “his hatred for everything in America.”
Over Christmas, he was in contact with someone he described as an ISIS operative in Syria and asked the operative what he should do for ISIS if he can’t make it to Syria, according to documents. The operative ultimately suggested Lutchman plan an operation for New Year’s and kill “1000000s of coffer” — referring to non-believers, according to the FBI.
On Monday, Lutchman allegedly met with one of the FBI informants and told the informant he was “getting amped up to accept the fact that’s what I gotta do.”
“We just gotta show our allegiance [to ISIS]. I’m ready to lose my family,” he allegedly said. Later in the day, Lutchman and the informant discussed placing a bomb in a club-bar and then drove past one, picking it out as the target, according to the FBI. The two also allegedly discussed a plan to kidnap and then kill victims.
“I will take a life, I don’t have a problem with that,” Lutchman said, according to the FBI.
On Tuesday, the pair allegedly went to a Walmart in Rochester to purchase supplies, including ski masks, zip-ties, a machete and duct tape. The next day, Lutchman was arrested — and the FBI seized a video he made on his cellphone taking responsibility for the attack and pledging his allegiance to ISIS.

So, there it is, 2016, and the terrorists have won the first leg of the war. They have achieved their goal of turning our nice orderly Western cities into the West Bank during the Intifada. Now it’s not just Israeli Jews who have to run around worrying about the next suicide bomber, it’s everybody on the planet Earth. That’s what the Muslims have succeeded in doing to us. And of course, as planned, we are even getting used to it. The next generation will soon be thinking that there’s always been a nightly car-burning report and that nobody ever got onto an airplane without all sorts of security theatre. They just keep winning and winning and winning…
And then, of course, when we’re all so sick of terrorism that we just can’t stand it any more, the nice Imam will step in and offer us the peace and mercy and order of Islam. It’s all in the Quran, folks. That is what they are planning to do to us. It’s what they’re always planning. That is how Islam works…
The bog problem is that the various political leaders are treating this as a crime problem instead of a war, with crimes you are reactive and not proactive. Keeping us on the defensive can have only two possible ends, 1) there is a revolt of the people because the government isn’t performing its first obligation to the public, keeping them safe from foreign attacks. 2) we lose and Islam conquers the world.
