Surely we’ll be told by supporters of these animals that he’s a lone wolf and we shouldn’t let one thug tarnish the image of this hate group.
A Maryland man is custody after police say he threatened to kill residents in the town of La Plata in a social media post.
Police say 20-year-old Carlos Anthony Hollins posted the threat on Twitter. According to the La Plata Police Department, the tweet read, “IM NOT GONNA STAND FOR THIS NO. MORE. TONIGHT WE PURGE! KILL ALL THE WHITE PPL IN THE TOWN OF LA PLATA.” The tweet also included the hashtag #blacklivesmatter.
“Purge” is a reference to the “The Purge” series. Both the original film and its 2014 sequel depict a night in which crime is legal for 12 hours without any consequences.
Authorities were able to identify Hollins as their suspect and took him into custody. He has been charged with threats of mass violence.
His tweet was screencapped here and snagged on Twitter:
