Facebook Threats Against Darren Wilson Lead to Arrest

Oliver Darcy, The Blaze, December 2, 2014

A Washington state man was arrested this week for posting multiple messages on Facebook threatening to kill former Ferguson officer Darren Wilson and other members of law enforcement.

Jaleel Tariq Abdul-Jabbaar, 46, started posting the threatening messages after Wilson fatally shot Michael Brown in August, according to a criminal complaint filed in a U.S. district court Monday.


“Are there any REAL BLACK MEN that would love to go down to Ferguson Missouri to give back those bullets that Police Officer Darren Wilson Fired into the body of Mike Brown. If we’re unable to locate Officer Wilson then We’ll return them to his wife and if not her then his children,” the 46-year-old wrote in one Facebook post, according to investigators.

“We need to kill this white motha f**ker and anything that has a badge on,” he allegedly wrote in another.

In yet another message, the man allegedly professed that he was “ready to go and kill some cops.”


According to Abdul-Jabbaar’s apparent Facebook page, he works as an associate at Nintendo. The 46-year-old’s profile also appeared to have the Islamic State’s flag serve as the header image on his page.
