The stabbing of a police officer at a Michigan airport on Wednesday is being investigated by the FBI as a possible terror attack, officials said.
Bishop International Airport in Flint, Michigan, was evacuated after Officer Jeff Neville was stabbed in the neck. He’s currently listed as being in stable condition, according to Michigan State Police.
The FBI says the suspect is in custody and is being questioned. They are working to determine a possible motive for the attack.

If ruled a terrorist attack, the question is what kind of terrorist attack? It may have been the result of an Islamic extremist or it could be an attack by a domestic terrorist who hates police. Barack Obama worked hard to create an atmosphere of hating law enforcement and ever since then, more police are being attacked than they have in years.
