*Trust me. I am just as upset as a lot of folks that Darren Wilson will not be held accountable for what he did. But blabbering on Face Book and posting threatening messages about killing him is just plain stupid.
So why has a man who calls himself “D.W.” allegedly posed this threat?
Perhaps he can explain that to somebody, now that he’s behind bars.
The Kirkland, Washington man now known as Jaleel Tariq Abdul-Jabbaar made his threats to kill Wilson on a Facebook post, according to Talking Points Memo.
“Are there any REAL BLACK MEN that would love to go down to Ferguson Missouri to give back those bullets that Police Officer [D.W.] fired into the body of Mike Brown. If we’re unable to locate Officer [D.W.] then We’ll return them to his wife and if not her then his children,” read one of the threats cited, which was posted on Nov. 11, according to TPM.
But in the criminal complaint filed against Abdul-Jabbaar, “D. W.” is Darren Wilson, and the threats posed “relate to the widely publicized events of Aug. 9, 2014, during which officer D.W. fatally shot Michael Brown,” the site notes.
Also noted in the criminal complaint is that Abdul-Jabbaar tried to get a firearm, a claim that it asserts leads to “additional Facebook records.” It would be prohibited for Abdul to own a firearm. The 46-year-old is a convicted felon, according to the site.
Wilson resigned from the Ferguson Police Department on Monday. Threats are being blamed as the cause for his decision.
If convicted, Abdul-Jabbaar could get up to 5 years in prison for the crime.
