The University of Illinois at Chicago received a terrorist threat this morning that led to the closure of the University.
“This is my only warning. At 10 a.m. on Monday morning, I’m going to the campus quad of the University of Chicago. I will be armed with an M-4 carbine and two desert eagles, all fully loaded. I will execute approximately 16 white male students and or staff, which is the same number of time McDonald was killed,” wrote the commenter, who posted with the initials “JRD” and a Chicago Bulls logo, according to court records. “I will then die killing any number of white policeman in the process. This is not a joke. I am to do my part and rid the world of white devils. I expect you do the same.”
No word as to whether the terrorist is a member of #BlackLivesMatter or whether he just wants to be their next poster-thug.
We should have more details tomorrow because police actually arrested the poster. His name is Jabari R. Dean, 21, and he is an electrical engineering student at UofI-Chicago.
Dean, who appeared in federal court Monday afternoon wearing a red UIC hoodie and blue jeans, will be held in custody until Tuesday, when he will be released to the custody of his mother.
The FBI does not consider Dean a threat and he did not have the resources to carry out the threat, federal prosecutors said in court.
If convicted, Dean, who lives with his mother, faces a maximum of five years in prison.
We’re waiting for the announcement from the Loretta Lynch Department of Justice concerning the FBI probe into Dean’s activities and whether he has any affiliation with #BlackLivesMatter.
We are not, however, holding our breath.
