By Scott Malone BOSTON (Reuters) - A Massachusetts man slain by law enforcement officers on Tuesday had discussed plans to kill police officers with an associate arrested the same day, and the associate advised him to destroy all electronic records of their discussion, according to papers filed in Boston federal court on Wednesday. Usaamah Abdullah Rahim, who was shot to death by police officers after allegedly confronting them with a large knife, had told David Wright "I'm just going to, ah, go after them, those boys in blue," an FBI agent involved in the investigation said in an affidavit. Wright, who was arrested late Tuesday in the Boston suburb of Everett, advised Rahim to destroy his computer and smartphone to ensure there was no record of the plot, the affidavit said.
