A Far Rockaway man was arrested last week for making a Facebook status update with the hashtag "killallwhites," which a nervous NYPD interpreted as "making a terroristic threat," a felony. In the aftermath of the George Zimmerman verdict, Remel Newson's status update caught the eye of an NYPD officer monitoring Facebook; it read: "BLAC NIGGAS CNT GET NO TYPE OF JUSTICE FU**IN WIT DESE CRACCER'S #KILLALL WHITES DATS DA TYPE OF SH*T I'M ON F**K DIS BEEF SH*T LET'S KILL COPS ND NEIGHBO RHOOD WATCHER #FACTS DAT." Cops were at Newson's door with hours.
According to investigators, Newson, 20, admitted he made the Facebook post, as well as another Facebook post quoting Drake, which the Queens DA also views as terroristic. (The Drake lyric quoted was "VASSACI VASSACI DESE HATERS IS WATCHIN DEY WISH DEY COULD STOP ME' DA FLOCCS IN DA LOBBY WE GRIP WITH DA SHOTIE ND WE'LL CATCH A BODY.")
The criminal complaint says Newson told officers "he f**ked up, that he shouldn't have wrote the above statement on Facebook and that it was a stupid complaint." But Tasha Lloyd, the Legal Aid attorney representing Newson, tells WNYC his first Facebook post was merely copied and pasted from someone else's account, and that her client "in no way was trying to intimidate anyone or coerce anyone into doing any illegal act. He just was very upset with the Martin verdict.
Making a terroristic threat is defined as making a threat "with intent to intimidate or coerce a civilian population, influence the policy of a unit of government by intimidation or coercion, or affect the conduct of a unit of government by murder, assassination or kidnapping, he or she threatened to commit or cause to be committed a specified offense and thereby caused a reasonable expectation or fear of the imminent commission of such offense."
Newson has two prior convictions including one for felony assault. He was arraigned on Friday and, in addition to the felony terroristic threat charge, Newson was charged with marijuana possession, after the NYPD allegedly found eight "marijuana cigarettes" in a locked bedroom in his residence.
Definitely one of Obama’s sons. And Holder’s nephew.
It wasn’t the “Kill All Whites” rhetoric that got this son-of-Obama arrested.
It was this.... “...LET’S KILL COPS....”
Maybe Rachel Jeantel can translate that for us... she speaks “jive.”
You should post the whole one, it’s hilarious. Murphy was a pretty good singer.

Wow! Good thing they had the guy on a FELONY, otherwise they would have had to get a warrant to find those joints. Brutha was probably baking in the back of the squad while they thought it was a good idea to ran-sack his crib.
“Just buy my record first”
How can quoting the lyrics of a song be terrorism when the performer doesn’t get charged with terrorism?
Isn’t black militance all about killing white people, and killing the representatives of the white establishment, like cops? Black people kill whites all the time. Why isn’t that called terrorism?
............... you mean the authorities actually DID SOMETHING this time???................................... I cannot tell you how shocked I am.
Actually arrested? A quick phone call from the corrupt ‘justice’ department will put an end to dat. [I mean that]
I just read the part about attacking the police. Now I understand why there was an arrest.
Not the part about attacking crakas.
Grammar and spelling old school, he new school
It aint gon be no hate crime. Dem hate crime laws was past to put crakas in jail for evrytin dey be sayin an doin not ta put da bruthas in jail.
Sorry, I don’t ebonics very well.
I’m glad he got stopped in his tracks, but how did anyone understand what he was posting? Does that person even possess a fifth grade education? He appears to be functionally illiterate...
Well I gather in the second part the rapper is “name dropping” Versace, but this guy can only spell it phonetically.
Yes, he is functionally illiterate, and at 20 years old, likely a high school graduate. Do we really need to wonder how Obama got elected? America, these are your voters...
