ISIS Leads NYPD To Increase Thanksgiving Parade Security
ISIS called the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade "an excellent target."By Ryan Biek | November 24, 2016
New York City police took extra precautions for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade this year.
Although the New York Police Department said it hadn't heard of any "specific, credible threat," in an online propaganda magazine, ISIS called for lone-wolf attacks similar to the one in Nice, France, earlier this year.
In July, an ISIS supporter drove a truck through heavy crowds in Nice, killing more than 80 people.
