BREAKING. Arrest Made In Jewish Community Center Bomb Threats

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The FBI has made an arrest in connection with some of the bomb threats directed at Jewish community centers and schools.

The federal authorities have charged a St. Louis man with making more than half a dozen bomb threats against Jewish community centers, schools and a Jewish history museum, an unsealed court document shows.

The man, Juan Thompson, made some of the threats in his own name and others in the name of a former girlfriend, apparently in an attempt to intimidate her, according to a federal complaint filed by the United States attorney’s office in Manhattan and unsealed on Friday.

In one threat, made on Feb. 1 against a Jewish school in Farmington Hills, Mich., the complaint said, Mr. Thompson claimed that he had placed two bombs in the school and was “eager for Jewish newton,” an apparent reference to the December 2012 school massacre in Newtown, Conn., in which a gunman killed 20 students and six school employees.

Mediaite has some background:

According to the complaint filed by the FBI, Thompson made eights threats as part of a cyber harassment campaign against his ex-girlfriend. Thompson then contacted the Center of American-Islamic Relations with an anonymous tip blaming his ex-girlfriend for the threat. He is also charged with stalking and making false complaints claiming his ex was in possession of child porn.

This is the complaint

The Juan Thompson arrested appears to be the same Juan Thompson who has worked for several progressive publications and has a record of fabulism (funny how frequently that happens).

The important thing to note here is that Thompson does not seem to be involved in the larger campaign of harassing Jewish community centers and schools. This looks like he used the existence of those bomb threats for his own purposes.
