Seattle: Muslim Arrested for Threats to Kill Ferguson Officer
By Pamela Geller – BarbWire guest contributor
Apparently CAIR’s jihad calls for #Ferguson incitement and violence has paid off for those Muslim Brotherhood trolls. They almost had it — but not quite. The relentless cries by designated terror groups CAIR, ISNA and foreign terror groups like ISIS to wage jihad in Ferguson nearly took one of our finest.
An axis of evil and hate. What do all of this disparate players have in common? A shared goal, the destruction of America.
Kirkland man arrested for threats to kill Ferguson officer,” by Martha Bellisle, Associated Press, December 2, 2014
SEATTLE (AP) – A man was arrested Tuesday on federal charges of posting Internet threats against a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, after a black teenager was shot and killed.
Defendant Jaleel Tarik Abdul-Jabbaar, 46, of Kirkland began posting threats on Facebook soon after the shooting of Michael Brown, according to the criminal complaint.
The complaint includes FBI Special Agent Brett Grover saying, “the threats relate to the widely publicized events of Aug. 9 during which Officer D.W. fatally shot Michael Brown.”
The complaint does not specifically name then-Officer Darren Wilson as the victim of the threats. It’s a policy to withhold the names of victims in such cases, said Emily Langlie, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle.
Wilson later resigned from the Ferguson Police Department.
Abdul-Jabbaar made an initial appearance in U.S. District Court and was appointed a federal public defender. The judge set a detention hearing for Friday.
On Aug. 30, Abdul-Jabbaar posted, “we really need to start killing the police … OOooopppss I mean our oppressors,” the complaint said.
Federal prosecutors said Abdul-Jabbaar posted inflammatory messages for months that called on others to join him on a trip to Ferguson to “give back the bullets” that were fired at Brown.
Acting U.S. Attorney Annette Hayes said Americans have a right to speak out about current events and criticize the government, but “our freedom of speech does not, however, extend to making threats to kill or injure law enforcement officers. …
The U.S. Attorney’s office has announced a Washington state man was arrested on three counts of making interstate death threats against former Officer Darren Wilson. Jaleel Tariq Abdul-Jabbaar was arrested at his home this morning by authorities. The complaint alleges multiple threats to kill Wilson along with his family and other law enforcement officers.
The New York Times published Wilson’s address last week, making it easier for lunatics like this to hunt him down and kill him.
According to the criminal complaint, ABDUL-JABBAAR started posting threats on his Facebook page shortly after the August 9, 2014 shooting of Michael Brown, through late November. ABDUL-JABBAAR posted various statements about killing police officers and traveling to Ferguson, Missouri. Among others, ABDUL-JABBAAR stated: “We need to kill (the officer) and anything that has a badge on.” ABDUL-JABBAAR also used Facebook communications to attempt to acquire a firearm.
Making interstate threats is punishable by up to five years in jail.
