Massachusetts man arrested for threatening ICE agents on Twitter

Source: NBC News

A Boston-area man has been arrested by federal agents in New York after threatening U.S. immigration agents on Twitter.

Brandon Ziobrowski, 33, of Cambridge, Massachusetts, was arrested Thursday morning after posting on Twitter in July that he would give $500 to anyone who would kill an Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent.

According to the indictment, Ziobrowski had previously tweeted his desire to "slit" Sen. John McCain's throat. Starting in February, he began to post tweets promoting violence against law enforcement.

In March he began tweeting threatening messages about ICE, according to the indictments.

4. I doubt he is part of the resistance

Apparently he has been twitter-attacking LEO in general per the OP article, and then escalated to ICE.

5. The Trumplodytes will try to find a way to blame it on us somehow.

Because you know, they don't read past the headlines.

"That guy's a few bricks short of a load, ain't he?"
