Bolingbrook teen's lawyer: ISIS isn't a threat, so neither is my client

Tom Durkin, attorney for a Bolingbrook teen accused of heading to Syria to join ISIS, has a lot to say about the terrorist group. "If anyone hasn't noticed, ISIS went from a group that supposedly wasn't a threat to the United States to being our existential enemy in a matter of weeks, which I think is a lot of political grandstanding," he said. "I happen to think this type of prosecution is a misuse of the criminal justice system to really advance our geopolitical purposes."
