Meet Jaleel Tariq Abdul-Jabbaar, a 46-year-old man from Kirkland, Wash. who the Feds arrested yesterday on charges of making death threats against former Ferguson Police Office Darren Wilson:
From the Reuters piece above:
[Abdul-Jabbaar] is accused of posting a string of threats to his personal Facebook page targeting police officers, specifically Wilson. The criminal complaint quoted one of the postings as saying: “We the oppressed people need to kill this white cop.”
In another posting, he wrote: “We MUST arm ourselves against the white oppressors who wear guns and badges,” the complaint said.
Federal officials said Abdul-Jabbaar began making threats shortly after the Aug. 9 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, an incident that touched off weeks of angry protests in the St. Louis suburb and calls for Wilson’s arrest.
Abdul-Jabbaar’s arrest, however, is not going over well with some of those angry that Wilson was not indicted in the shooting death of Michael Brown:
And here comes the if he were white argument:
NBC reported that Abdul-Jabbar also tried to use Facebook to buy a gun:
Prosecutors also allege that Abdul-Jabbaar used Facebook to attempt to acquire a firearm, asking an unidentified person in October to “hook a ninja up on the connect.” After Wilson was not indicted, Abdul-Jabbar allegedly messaged the same person that it was “Time to kill a cop.”
Isn’t his arrest exactly the kind of arrest libs want the Feds to be making?
