The Powder Springs (GA) Police Department arrested a man who made “terroristic threats” toward police officers, according to Fox 5 News.
Joshua James Bolieiro, 37, shared a video titled ‘Police Department Bloodbath Continues,’ and posted a comment, which read, “The next police officer that speaks to me will die. You cops better resign, because if you speak to me, I will consider that a threat, and I will defend myself, in the manner that you guys defend yourselves. I will shoot first, and I will have no guilt.”
A subsequent post read, “If you are a police officer in Georgia, I suggest you pray to your god Satan that you don't accidentally speak to me," he continued in a second comment. "You will just have to roll the dice with every single traffic stop. Im (sic) aiming to kill ANY police officer that dares speak to me, with absolutely zero questions for you. You speak, you. Its (sic) that simple. Go ahead and test me. See how far you get.”
Powder Springs PD spokesman Dwayne Prosser said that the investigation began over the weekend when police from Manchester, New Hampshire, alerted Powder Springs police to threatening Facebook posts.
Prosser said that while investigating, Powder Springs police alerted all metro Atlanta law enforcement agencies of the threats Bolieiro had made to kill the next cop who talked to him, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
