Massachusetts Man Advertised for Cop Killers on Craigslist, Police Say

September 21, 2018  | 

A Massachusetts man who allegedly placed an advertisement on Craigslist inviting would-be cop killers for drinks was taken into custody by Cambridge police, according to Newsweek.

"Sick of Somerville and Cambridge cops who live in Sudbury or some other f--- place? Let’s kill them," the Craigslist post said.

"I want to see people killing cops and Uber drivers in and around Cambridge and Somerville and I'll buy you a drink," the advertisement said.

James Seawell was booked and charged with soliciting and threatening to commit a crime.

This piece of garbage should have been on someone's watch list. Surely he made some kind of statements in the past that would have raised a flag. Maybe he didn't and that is just another reason to be critically vigilant all the time. Profiling is a critical tool although Obama didn't like it, he is not in charge anymore, at least not in the presidency.

We need to get this suspect back into custody and to the death chair. Killing a cop should mean the death penalty for all cop killers. Until we start cleaning out death row cop killers will continue and not think about the consequences.

What was he thinking he was getting into when he advertised it on craigslist out of all places? What a dummy. Glad to see he's behind bars where he should be kept.
