A street gang leader in Illinois was arrested for trying to make a donation to a terrorist organization.

Sometimes the police will catch a criminal for something unexpected. For example, mob boss, Al Capone, went to jail for tax evasion and not for the numerous evil things he did.

According to chicagotribune.com,

"A reputed gang leader was meeting with an associate when he allegedly counted out $500 in cash under the table he thought was going to be wired to a terrorist fighter overseas. What he didn’t know was that his associate was working undercover for the FBI and the whole transaction was a ruse he’d captured on video. That meeting was at the center of a criminal complaint accusing the reputed leader of a street gang, of handing over a total of $1,500 in cash to the associate over three separate occasions this year, believing the money would be wired to the associate’s cousin, terrorist fighting in Syria."

Sounds like there are many different reasons to get this guy off the streets.
