The NYPD said today that it is increasing its presence in Times Square after a blog post to an ISIS chat room called for attacks on the famous tourist spot.
"We are as prepared as any entity can be to deal with threats," said Police Commissioner Bill Bratton, according to WABC-TV. "But the reality is that we are living in a newer era of potential terrorism."
The NYPD said it believes this is nothing but propaganda, one of many such postings over the years.
However, Bratton said that the ability to inspire lone wolves is the biggest threat ISIS poses to the United States.
Bratton added that none of the posts are specific or worrying in and of themselves.
