One arrest has been made in the threats, a St. Louis man accused of making eight of the calls in an effort to harass his ex-girlfriend. Juan Thompson has asked a federal judge in Missouri to release him on bond as he faces the federal charges out of New York. Thompson’s lawyer declined comment.
Miller said the New York Police Department is working with federal officials who are the lead investigators on the case. He said he’s working with institutions in New York to help them manage responses to the threats.
He’s from St Louis. He was fired from the Progressive Web site The Intercept for “fabricating” (I read that as lying!) He is a BLM guy (naturally) and wanted to run for Mayor of St Louis.
