Sevdet Ramadan Besim, 19, of Hallam, is accused of plotting an Anzac Day terror attack in Melbourne that would have included a beheading.
He was committed to trial in the Supreme Court on Thursday after pleading not guilty to four charges.
Federal police allege Mr Besim and a person overseas had been in a series of communications in the lead-up to the alleged plot for Anzac Day.
Mr Besim allegedly said he was “ready to fight these dogs on there [sic] doorstep” in online communications with the person overseas, according to court documents.
“I’d love to take out some cops,” Mr Besim is alleged to have said.
“I was gonna meet with them then take some heads ahaha.”
In a prosecution summary against Mr Besim tendered to court, police allege the pair spoke on March 16 last year, during which they discussed packing a kangaroo with explosives and letting it loose on police.
“The conversation continues with Besim detailing what he did that day and they have a general discussion around animals and wildlife in Australia, including a suggestion that a kangaroo could be packed with C4 explosive, painted with the IS symbol and let loose on police officers,” the summary says.
Besim seems to fancy himself as quite the Wile E. Jihadi.
