A Black Lives Matter supporter will appear in court on charges of making “Terroristic threats” and using a computer to commit a crime (presumably a hate crime).
“F them racist a** cops!!! Kill them ALL. Black Lives Matter. Black people should start killing all white cops just like they are killing us!!! Then and only then will this s*** stop. Why you ask? Because white people will be dropping like flies!!!”
In what is becoming the fast demise of a group once courted by former President Obama and Hillary Clinton, this is just the latest in a series of racist comments, actions and arguably “Hate Crimes”.
As reported in the Daily Caller, Attorney General Bill Schuette said that Nheru Gowan Littleton’s post endangered the lives of law enforcement.
“These charges are solid and substantive. I stand with the cops. These threats are serious. They provoke violence. We filed these charges; they’re solid, and this is a fight worth fighting for,”
The ACLU has waded into this case in support of Littleton saying:
“He was sharply critical of the police, and it’s understandable that some found what he said to be inappropriate and disturbing. But let’s be clear: he didn’t hurt anyone, nor did he plan to.”
“In America, we don’t arrest people, or prosecute them as ‘terrorists,’ just because they say things the police don’t like. We’re not a police state.”
Well actually, we do. Incitement to commit murder is a crime. Incitement to commit racially aggravated assault is a crime. As to whether it is a “Terrorism” crime is up to the courts to decide, but make no mistake, calling for the execution of people based on their skin colour is criminal (as are calls for executions in general), and the ACLU would do well to distance themselves from this.
