SNIPPET: “FBI agents swooped into a home on NE 65th and Prescott Monday morning, seizing computers the agents believe were used to post death threats about controversial Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio.
The accused blogger, Clifton Dawayne Brooks, allegedly ran a blogspot site called “Targeting Cops.” According to the FBI search warrant, he is an active commenter on various Portland sites, including Indymedia and here on Blogtown, using variations of the name “Damos Abadon.” Our then-news editor Matt Davis wrote a story about Clifton Brooks’ altercation with police on SE Belmont back in 2008.”
I wonder how much jail time the computers. Will get.
He should have just stuck to making death threats against normal citizens instead of one of our “super citizens” and odds are very little if anything would have been done, and I’m sure the FBI wouldn’t have jumped into action like someone just tossed a beehive in their laps. Equal protection indeed.
