Comment Share Tweet Stumble Email
A St. Louis man has been arrested in connection with recent threats made against Jewish community centers across the country, authorities said.

New York Police Commissioner James O’Neill said Juan Thompson, 31, was arrested by the FBI Friday.

The NYPD said in a statement that Thompson appears to have made at least eight threats against the centers.

The threats were allegedly made as part of a harassment campaign against a woman who was in a romantic relationship with Thompson, authorities said.

Thompson has been charged in federal court with cyberstalking the woman. The charge carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison.

The Editor-in-Chief of the Intercept, Betsy Reed, told BuzzFeed News that based on Thompson’s Twitter feed, he was a former writer at the site. She added that the publication has not been in touch with Thompson since he was fired.

Thompson worked at the Intercept from November 2014 until January 2016. He was found to have fabricated a story about Dylann Roof, and to have created fake email accounts to impersonate other people.

ROTFLMAO, this is not breaking news, they call this domestic abuse and hate crimes, seeing that Trump's racist bigoted ideals and rhetoric have put a spotlight on these lesser known incidents which have existed for decade, people are now listening to the concerns. The best thing that Trump's ignorance has created is a heightened awareness regarding crime against Women, minorities, religious & ethnic groups.
