FBI Arrests Teen Threatening To Murder CNN Employees
The folks at CNN have dodged a major bullet, or perhaps several according to CBS46.
A 19-year-old Michigan boy, Brandon Griesemer, has been apprehended by the FBI after he made 22 phone calls to CNN headquarters in Atlanta making threats of violence that appear to be inspired by the 45th President of the United States.
Griesemer told a CNN operator, among other things, “Fake news. I’m coming to gun you all down.”
That’s right. A potential terrorist invoked the catchphrase of the President in the midst of plotting multiple murders. What would be said if this was a brown boy yelling verses from the Quran? Exactly.
Brandon’s threats didn’t end there:
“I’m smarter than you. More powerful than you. I have more guns than you. More manpower. Your cast is about to get gunned down in a matter of hours.”
Griesemer continued, “I am coming to Georgia right now to go to the CNN headquarters to f—ing gun every single last one of you.”
The FBI traced the call and was able to arrest Brandon before he was able to drive to Atlanta.
Again, IMAGINE IF A BROWN PERSON HAD PULLED THIS S#!T!
