The threats circulating on Twitter originated from the account @brownclown42, under the name of John Mackenzie. The account has since been deleted. The local newspaper reported receiving the emails, which were titled “I am going to kill more police.” The author claimed that he and his partners were “getting our Sig Sauer MCX .223-caliber rifles ready” as they were going to “shoot and kill as many police officers as they can.” The emails specifically mentioned police headquarters on Middle Street and an adjacent parking garage on Newbury Street. “Very soon, my partners will head down to Portland Police Department ... there they will shoot and kill as many police officers as they can,” one message read, according to the newspaper. He also threatened to “get into position at the top of the parking garage,” while also claiming that the Cumberland County parking garage was booby-trapped with explosives. However, the police did not find anything. Thank god that local police in Portland Maine took this social media threat on killing police officers serious, even though most of these threats are bogus. The thing is their are perhaps hundreds of thousands of these like threats on police officers all over the country on social media since the Dallas slaughter of police officers took place in the beginning of July, that left five dead in a Black Lives Matter attack on the DPD. These threats on police officers are taking place when the Obama administration has stated that people of color are being treated unfairly by police in America, when minorities in America make up for 50 percent of the violent crime in the United States. More threats like this are occurring online on police officers, which seem to be getting ignored over the internet since the Dallas incident.
