Anti-police Facebook posts don’t constitute terrorism threats, prosecutors say
Three Detroit men under investigation for allegedly posting threats against police on their Facebook pages will not face criminal charges, as prosecutors found their messages did not constitute true threats under terrorism statutes and that in two cases police fouled their investigations by failing to read the men their Miranda rights.
In one case, a 40-year-old man admitted to posting “All lives can’t matter until Black Lives Matter!!!! Kill all white cops!!!!” while he was drunk on vacation in Puerto Rico.
Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said her office could not bring charges in that case because the post was made outside her jurisdiction and it did not constitute a true threat. – READ MORE
