(KUTV) -If it can happen in Europe, it can happen here.

A southern Utah student was arrested Monday, accused of being an ISIS promotor.

But what turns a high schooler, into an ISIS soldier?

We spoke with Amos Guiora, a law professor at the University of Utah.

He lectures on many topics, including terrorism. He says when it comes to marketing, ISIS excels and it’s clear they are masters of social media.

What’s harder to pinpoint is how those videos are appealing to people. For some reason, the propaganda is inciting a passion in people thousands of miles away.

Guiora says at some point, social media may need to further crack down on these images and ask where is the line between free speech and speech that incites these actions.
