Operation Sudden Impact targets terrorists


More than 50 law enforcement agencies gathered in Memphis late Saturday and early Sunday to catch criminals.      

The purpose of the multi-agency crackdown on crime, dubbed “Operation Sudden Impact,” was to expose terrorist activity in the Midsouth.  The sweep resulted in the arrest of almost 80 people, 31 of which were fugitives.  Now, the federal government will determine if any of the suspects have ties to terrorism.

“Potential terrorists are smart people,” said Chief Jeff Dyer of the U.S. Coast Guard. “They utilize every advantage that they can find.”  More from WMC

The last line is the most important: “Terrorism is an event that could happen anywhere,” Luttrell said.
