Man arrested in Las Vegas for anti-cop Facebook rants

Posted by Neil Shouse | Jan 20, 2015 | 0 Comments

Recently Dustin McCaskill of Colorado was arrested in Las Vegas for reportedly making death threats to police on Facebook. Prior to arrest, the FBI had warned him to cease publishing threats on his Facebook page, which is dedicated to showcasing corrupt law enforcement. Presently McCaskill is in federal custody and facing charges of interstate communications with intent to extort.

Some of the defendant's reported Facebook postings include: “Hey FBI, how about I kill one of your foot soldiers next time they try to raid me at gunpoint on a warrantless raid? How's that sound?”; “I'm threatening to kill a cop or FBI agent. They have put me in fear for my life with warrantless raids at gunpoint … Now, come arrest me you (expletive) cowards. I just made a threat. I'm going to be the pigs worst nightmare. Come get me.”; and “I'm going to kill an officer or two and let them take me out. What the (expletive) are they going to do? Die with me. We can just have some suffering families.”

McCaskill was staying at the Riviera casino while in Las Vegas. After the FBI saw that he was making new anti-cop postings, he was arrested. He reportedly admitted to making the Facebook postings.
