A 21-year-old racist Chicago man was arrested on Monday for threatening to kill 16 white male students or staff on the University of Chicago in retaliation for the shooting last year of black teenager Laquan McDonald by a white police officer, according to law enforcement officials, Reuters reported.
Jabari R. Dean was charged with transmitting a threat in interstate commerce and, if convicted, could face up to five years in prison, the U.S. Attorney in Chicago said in a statement.
Will this be charged as a hate crime? Will the FBI have their own separate investigation?
Jabari is a student, majoring in electrical engineering for which you have to be fairly sane, smart and coherent.
He wrote on www.worldstarhiphop that he was going to “execute” staff, students and police at the university. It was to be his “only warning”, he announced and he’d use an M-14 Carbine. Police searched but haven’t found a gun.
He also hates cops.
“I then will die killing any number of white policeman that I can in the process. This is not a joke. I am to do my part to rid the world of the white devils. I expect you do the same.”
He was arrested Monday and admitted that he posted the threat from his phone. The university canceled classes and was in lock down.
