This goes along with the ‘hugs and jobs’.

Faced with a wave of potential homegrown Islamic State supporters, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is embarking on a new approach with some suspects: putting them in counseling rather than handcuffs.
Federal and local officials working on counterterrorism say the logistical challenges posed by Islamic State’s propaganda—its slick online messages are readily available to anyone—make it difficult to address the problem solely through traditional investigations.
Proponents of the intervention model say it provides a possible “off ramp” from radicalization and addresses a hard truth: The FBI cannot effectively investigate all of the thousands of Americans who are believed to be interested in Islamic State, also known as ISIS.
The challenge is particularly acute for teenage suspects, because the federal criminal justice system is poorly equipped to prosecute minors, officials said.
“Nobody wants to see a 15-year-old kid go to jail if they don’t have to,’’ said one official working on the effort. That official said that when the FBI recommends a potential suspect for counseling, the criminal investigation will continue and agents will be prepared to make an arrest if they believe the person becomes more dangerous.
What about the 15 year old jihadists who are seasoned terrorists? This is tantamount to placing them in juvenile detention.
The issue has sparked an intense debate inside federal law enforcement, where many fear deadly consequences if they misjudge a suspect who is sent to counseling instead of being arrested.
“I get the principle, but there are a lot of potential problems with this, and I think it’s a wrong move,’’ said Peter Ahearn a former FBI counterterrorism agent. “I’m not saying it shouldn’t be done but it shouldn’t be done by the FBI. That’s not the mission.’’
The mission, under Obama, has become a humongous clusterfuck.
In Dearborn, Mich., Police Chief Ronald Haddad’s officers were contacted about a month ago by a family worried their son might try to join Islamic State. Police ended up steering the teen toward psychiatric help, the chief said.
Such an intervention doesn’t stop a criminal investigation, but Mr. Haddad said the goal is to avoid any potential violence or arrest, if possible. In a city where roughly a third of the population claims some Arab heritage, several counterterrorism officials said Dearborn’s police department is better equipped than most to do such outreach and intervention.
Dearborn has become quite the muzzie enclave and operating base for Islamic jihad, with ‘Islamic centers’ and mosques that are breeding grounds for terrorism. The main mosque in Dearborn, the Islamic Center of America, is run by Imam Sayed Hassan Al-Qazwini, who has considerableties to Hezbollah, invited Nation of Islam’s lunatic Louis Farrakhan to speak, and openly advocates terrorism.
If the FBI wants to curtail Islamic terrorism in America, it could start right there.
……The approach is increasingly embraced by the Obama administration as part of a broader initiative federal officials call countering violent extremism, or CVE—which focuses on countering terrorist propaganda and spotting problematic behavior early.
Don Borelli, a former FBI counterterrorism official, noted the approach has been used in Europe for years, and said that with proper legal guidance and training, could work here.
They don’t need “counseling”; what they need is a long prison stretch. They act as if this were a symptom of teenage angst, when it’s more of an effort to embrace a violent theocracy hellbent on destroying Western civilization.
On second thought, ff the punks want to join ISIS, Al Qaeda, or any other muzzie terrorist group, I say let them do it, so we can kill the little shitbags along with their mentors.
In past years, he said, “there was a lot of resistance’’ to the idea that the FBI play a role in interventions, Mr. Stanek said. “This new FBI is totally different.’’
Different? That’s a fucking understatement. It’s become a pile of mush.
Yep, the country’s in good hands.
This is what you get when the Muslim Brotherhood Takes Charge of FBI Counterterrorism Training and the FBI Partners With Jihad Groups.
