One of the reasons good Law Enforcement people don’t jump to conclusions…Is life can be strange, and the unexpected happens frequently.
This clown was apparently pissed at a woman for dumping him (with it now revealed as good reason)…so he called in some bomb threats in the woman’s name!
The FBI is searching for more suspects in the dozens of calls to Jewish institutions around the nation.
A former staff reporter for The Intercept is accused of making eight threats to Jewish community centers and the Anti-Defamation League’s New York headquarters in an attempt to harass a former girlfriend, according to the FBI and the publication.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation worked with the New York Police Department and New York State Police to arrest Juan Thompson in St. Louis, Missouri, on one count of cyberstalking, according to an FBI press release. Thompson, 31, allegedly stalked a woman by making the threats in her name, court documents said.
While Thompson is accused in eight of the incidents, there have been dozens of others. An FBI spokesperson told The Huffington Post that a suspect or suspects who have been making sweeping calls in waves to Jewish community centers across the country are still on the loose.
The harassment began in July, immediately after the woman ended her relationship with Thompson, according to the documents. On July 27, Thompson allegedly sent an email to the victim’s employer at a social service organization in the greater New York area, claiming that she’d been pulled over for drunk driving and was being sued for spreading sexually transmitted diseases.
Thompson then made eight threats over the course of a month, using two different methods, authorities said. He would either make the threats in the victim’s name, or in his own name and then claim the victim was trying to frame him. According to the FBI, he sent the first threat via email to the Jewish History Museum in Manhattan on Jan. 28.
On Feb. 1, he allegedly threatened a Jewish school in Manhattan twice, and another Jewish school in Farmington Hills, Michigan, once. He allegedly threatened a JCC in Manhattan on Feb. 7; a JCC in San Diego on Feb. 20; and sent an email to the Council on American-Islamic Relations to threaten a Jewish center in Dallas on Feb. 21.
Thomson is accused of sending an email to the ADL on Feb. 21 saying the woman “is behind the bomb threats against Jews. She lives in NYC and is making more bomb threats tomorrow.” The next day, the ADL got a phone call from a person claiming that “explosive material” had been placed at its office in Manhattan, according to the FBI.
Court documents mentioned the tweet below, in which Thompson accuses “this nasty/racist #whitegirl” of sending “a bomb threat in my name.”
Know any good lawyers? Need to stop this nasty/racist #whitegirl I dated who sent a bomb threat in my name & wants me to be raped in jail.
