Hate Crime? Terroristic Threat?
- For each of the 16 bullets that hit Laquan McDonald, Jabari R. Dean allegedly took to the Internet and promised to “execute” a white student or staff member at the University of Chicago.
But his uncle said he’s simply a “stupid kid” with nothing to do. And the feds don’t think he could have pulled off the shooting.
Regardless, U.S. Magistrate Judge Susan Cox told Dean, 21, that he’d spend the night in federal custody after authorities arrested him for making chilling comments on the website worldstarhiphop.com that shut down the University of Chicago’s Hyde Park campus Monday. Dean admitted he used his phone to post the comment Saturday but quickly deleted it, according to the feds. Someone sent a screenshot of the post to the FBI, and the words are contained in the criminal complaint filed against Dean...
So let's see how this plays out. The smart money is on the complete and utter double standard we've come to expect. Any takers?
