DALLAS (AP) — Several people around the country have been arrested for making threats against law enforcement in the wake of shootings by police in Louisiana and Minnesota and the killings of five officers in Dallas.
A suburban Chicago woman is accused of posting a threat on Facebook to shoot any police officer who pulls her over and asks her to get out of the car.
Police in Louisiana say a man was jailed after posting a social media video in which he says he wants to shoot and kill a police officer. Police in Bossier (BOH’-zhur) say the man made the video while sitting in a car that was behind a police unit at a fast-food drive-thru.
And in Racine, Wisconsin, police say they arrested a man who posted calls for black men to kill white police officers and their families.
