A man has been arrested for using social media to threaten local police and their families.
Officers from the Chester Police Department in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, say that they received threats on Facebook and Instagram from a man upset about the arrest of a teenage girl, after she allegedly threatened to shoot up several Chester, DA area schools.
David Milbourne, 23, was taken into custody on Wednesday. He is charged with two counts of making terroristic threats, and one count of harassment. He claimed that he instructed the 17-year-old to post threatening messages aimed at several schools, according to NBC Philly. The threats specifically targeted black students at the schools including the statement, “all blacks must die.”
The teen girl confessed to posting the school related threats and also said it was a prank, according to police.
Angered by the arrest, Milbourne, allegedly posted a picture of himself in a black ski mask with his hand making a gun gesture, writing, “tell them stupid Chester cops…they better worry about their family getting murdered…after all who gonna stop me,” according to CBS Philly.
The relationship between Milbourne and the teen was not immediately known.
