Extremism examined

The FBI recently arrested a young Bolingbrook man accused of trying to join ISIS. The case of Mohammed Hamzah Khan is currently in the courts. He’s one of numerous young Americans - most them young men - accused of joining or trying terror groups overseas. We wanted to look more deeply into why someone might allegedly become an extremist, and how to prevent this. Tom Mockaitis, a DePaul University history professor and expert on terrorism and WBEZ’s Lynette Kalsnes, who’s been covering the ISIS case, join us to talk about the matter.
