Via The Kirkland Reporter:
A Kirkland man with a criminal history was arrested in Seattle after making repeated threats on Facebook to kill white police officers in Ferguson, Mo., including former FPD officer Darren Wilson.
Abdul-Jabbaar eventually came to the attention of the FBI’s International Terrorism squad when he allegedly called for killing cops on his Facebook account. A Philadelphia native, Abdul-Jabbaar also lived in Michigan and claimed on his Facebook page to have just moved into a Kirkland apartment. Investigators were able to confirm his residence through the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, from which he receives subsidized housing benefits.
“Then we can find where that cop’s child goes to school at and hope that the same can be returned back to that white [racial slur],” he allegedly wrote according to the charging documents.
On Aug. 30, Abdul-Jabbaar allegedly reposted a news report claiming video surveillance contradicted the official story of what had happened during the Ferguson shooting, writing “we really need to start killing the police.”
Other messages and posts included “I would love to smoke a white motha [expletive] cop,” as well as “We the oppressed people need to kill this white cop” along with a repost of a news story containing Wilson’s address.
On Nov. 11, Abdul-Jabbaar allegedly wrote “Are there any REAL BLACK MEN that would love to go down to Ferguson Missouri to give back those bullets to Police Officer [D.W.] fired into the body of Mike Brown. If we’re unable to locate Officer [D.W.], then We’ll return them to his wife and if not her then his children.”
Two days before the Grand Jury’s decision whether or not to indict Wilson was announced, Abdul-Jabbaar allegedly wrote “I got my money to go to Ferguson… Who else is going to put in some work?”
When the Grand Jury decision was announced on Nov. 24, Abdul-Jabbaar allegedly re-posted a news report containing Wilson’s name and photograph with the message “Ready to go and kill some cops.” He later allegedly wrote “We need to kill this white motha [expletive] and anything that has a badge on.” A day later he posted a cartoon graphic depicting a black man shooting a police officer in uniform. Above the graphic he allegedly wrote “We black folks shouldn’t been doing this to the police last night. We MUST arm ourselves against the white oppressors that wear guns and badges. It’s time to start carrying guns as well to kill the white oppressors.”
Facebook records show that he allegedly attempted to acquire a handgun in late October despite being a convicted felon for unlawful possession of a firearm in 2009. The conviction stemmed from a shooting arising from a domestic violence incident with his friend’s sister, according to the prosecutors. He was also convicted on drug charges.
