A man was arrested Thursday over what he wrote in one tweet about agents of the department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Here’s what he posted
The tweet, posted July 2, appeared to be an offer to pay for the murder of any ICE agent.
“I am broke but I will scrounge and literally give $500 to anyone who kills an ice agent,” the tweet read, according to CNN.
“@me seriously who else can pledge get in on this let’s make it work,” it continued.
The man was identified by police as 33-year-old Brandon James Ziobrowski from Cambridge, Massachusetts.
According to the indictment, Ziobrowski had also tweeted a threat to slit the throat of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).
His account has been suspended by Twitter, and the tweet deleted.
Ziobrowski does not have a criminal record. He was taken into custody in New York and released on an $50,000 unsecured bond.
Here’s a local news report about the twitter threat:
The threat followed upon a political campaign by far left elements of the Democratic Party to “abolish ICE” after President Donald Trump ordered “zero tolerance” policies in immigration enforcement.
