Man arrested after pledging to shoot a passerby for 100 retweets

Recommended Posts

A 20-year-old Los Angeles man has been arrested after he allegedly threatened to shoot someone walking down the street in exchange for 100 retweets on Twitter, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. The Los Angeles Times reports that the man, Dakkari Dijon McAnuff, posted a photo on Twitter showing a rifle pointed out at the street with the caption "100 [retweets] and I'll shoot someone walking."


 


After being alerted to the photo, police tracked McAnuff down at his home in downtown LA and arrested him on suspicion of making criminal threats. An air rifle was found at the home, the Times reports. McAnuff's Twitter account has been deleted.


 


The incident is only the latest example of posts on social media leading to offline arrests. Threats on Twitter have resulted in arrests in Spain, the United Kingdom, and Kuwait, among other places. Last year, a US college student went on trial for threats posted on his Tumblr.

They should give the perp a 6 month jail term and is barred from owning a weapon for life. The same thing should be done to him and see how he likes it.

Hardcore gangsta. Exactly the kind of drop-kick who would shoot someone for retweets.

Scotts are so pale they need a classification to themselves. White isn't white enough.  :rofl:
