A Massachusetts man was arrested in New York on Thursday after trying to hire a hit man on Twitter to kill ICE agents for $500 and sharing his desire to slit the throat of Sen. John McCain, federal officials said.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Massachusetts said that Brandon Ziobrowski, 33, from Cambridge, Mass. was charged with one count of use of interstate and foreign commerce to transmit a threat and injure another person for the alleged Twitter posts this year.

Federal officials said Ziobrowski tweeted a murder for hire solicitation to kill Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents for $500, and repeatedly tweeted his desire to slit the throat of McCain, R-Ariz.




"The agents and officers out there enforcing federal laws are doing their job, plain and simple," U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said at a news conference. "There is a difference between public debate and putting others in fear of their lives."

Federal officials said Ziobrowski in March started tweeting threatening messages against federal agents that work for ICE.

On July 2, the 33-year-old allegedly tweeted: “I am broke but will scrounge and literally give $500 to anyone who kills ICE agent. @me seriously who else can pledge get in on this lets make this work.”

Luckily this one was from an idiot that was easy to catch before they could cause any harm.

Hire a hit man on Twitter?  Another Darwin Award winning candidate

Oh please, not only does this nut case not represent the "left", he's obviously damaged in the head. As if anyone was actually going to respond and follow through with the killing of an ICE agent for $500. It's utterly ridiculous. Trying to use this as an example of "left wing" violence is a testament to how little actual left wing violence there is.

There's no drought when it comes to right wing violence, but all the right can do is deflect and distract from those who share their values who continually commit violent acts of terror against real Americans. Nice try, but the poor attempt to pin this on "the left" is beyond sad. Now when it comes to right wing violence all we ever hear from the right is "crickets"...

He is as representative of "the left" as Dylann Roof is of "the right".

There are serious nutcases identifying with both sides.

So now a dumb ass tweets he'll pay $500 to kill someone is equivalent to a racist kid who planned a mass murder, walked into a church and shot 9 black Americans? Just more false equivalence from the right.

*sigh*

Once again....please do at least attempt to follow along this time.... 

O'l Brandon here is inventing new types of batshit crazy.  But he's not representative of "the left", now, is he?

Roof just relied on old types of batshit crazy.  Similarly...he's not representative of "the right".

So what we have here are batshit crazy nutcases attaching themselves to political causes/viewpoints, even though they don't represent 99.99% of the rest of the people with whom they claim to identify.  Roof and Ziobrowski have that in common.

Do you see how this works now?

WTF?  You still trying to equate mass murder with tweets?  I'm not even remotely trying to defend the tweeter, arrest him and give him the full force of the fricken law.  But to try to make those two on the same level?  Fuck no!  One is also a HATE CRIME!  STOP WITH THE FALSE EQUIVALENCIES!

*facepalm*

If you will endeavor to READ, you will find that I never suggested you were doing so.

But to try to make those two on the same level?  Fuck no!  One is also a HATE CRIME!  STOP WITH THE FALSE EQUIVALENCIES!

*double facepalm*

Political parties rarely in America have ever used or condoned violence.

Blaming a political party for the actions of thugs and lunatics is rather foolish.
