Man Arrested For Threatening to Murder Family of FCC Chairman Ajit Pai For His Role in Repealing Net Neutrality

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai

The Department of Justice announced Friday a 33-year-old California man was arrested for threatening to kill the family of FCC Chairman Ajit Pai.

Per the DOJ, a Los Angeles man was arrested Friday for threatening to murder Ajit Pai’s family over Pai’s role in repealing Net Neutrality.

Another unhinged leftist threatening to kill a Trump official over fake news hysteria.

DOJ press release reads:

“According to court documents, on or about Dec. 19 and 20, 2017, Markara Man, 33, or Norwalk, allegedly sent three emails to Chairman Pai’s email accounts. The first email accused Chairman Pai of being responsible for a child who allegedly had committed suicide because of the repeal of new neutrality regulations.

The second email listed three locations in or around Arlington, and threatened to kill the Chairman’s family members. The third email had no message it its body, but included an image of Chairman Pai and, in the foreground and slightly out of focus, a framed photograph of Chairman Pai and his family. The FBI traced the emails to Man’s residence in Norwalk, California and when initially confronted in May of 2018, Man, admitted to the FBI that he sent the email threatening Chairman Pai’s family because he was “angry” about the repeal of the net neutrality regulations and wanted to “scare” Chairman Pai.”

“Man is charged with a threatening to murder a member of the immediate family of a US official with the intent to intimidate or interfere with such official while engaged in the performance of official duties, or with the intent to retaliate against such official on account of the performance of official duties.”

The FCC’s meeting on Net Neutrality was abruptly evacuated in December amid an unidentified security incident. The meeting resumed after police officers swept the room with bomb-sniffing dogs. 

At around the same time Markara Man threatened to murder Ajit Pai’s family in December, leftists were hurling death threats over Twitter to the FCC Chairman

Liberals want the government to keep this Obama regulation.

After the FCC voted 3-2 in favor of Net Neutrality repeal, the leftists came unhinged and hurled death threats and racial slurs at FCC Chairman Ajit Pai.

Here we are SEVEN MONTHS LATER and the threatening tweets are still up on Twitter:
