Remember: It’s only racist when a white person makes threats.

Aries Woodfin was arrested this week for threatening to murder police officers and “white kids.”
NY Daily News reported:

Aries Woodfin, 33, was arrested after police searched a suburban Chicago home where he stayed and found a gun, several rounds of ammunition and a homemade gun range. But the owner said the gun belonged to her and that Woodfin was only ranting and did not intend to follow through with his outburst.

An Illinois man was arrested after police officers investigated a Facebook post in which he allegedly threatened to “kill cops and innocent white kids.”

Police arrested Aries Woodfin, 33, at a suburban Illinois home Friday after they found a .45-caliber pistol, several rounds of ammunition and what police described as a homemade shooting range in the basement, reports TV Station ABC7 in Chicago.

A message sent to the Cook County Sheriff’s Office was not returned to the Daily News Sunday.

But the owner of the home told the station that gun belonged to her and that Woodfin does not pose a threat to the community.

His post on Dec. 8 on the social media website was merely him expressing his outrage over recent highly publicized incidents in which white police officers killed young black teenagers and were not charged, she said.

“He was speaking his mind,” Beatrice Franklin told the station. “He was expressing how he felt, which is what everyone else was doing on Facebook as well, expressing themselves. They were ranting and they were raving.”
