Many get angry over breakups. They do not take well the hurt and rejection that they feel because their significant other has moved on. Many have sought to get revenge. They go on to make much of themselves. They have made it their point to be with as many beautiful people as possible. They have even put graphic pictures on the web.
But not many have gone to the lengths that Juan Thompson has gone.
Heat Street reports
Juan Thompson, 31, of St. Louis, Missouri, has been charged with cyberstalking and making at least eight separate bomb threats against Jewish organizations. Thompson formally worked for Glenn Greenwald’s The Intercept and has written for the popular liberal blogs like Daily Kos.
The FBI’s complaint alleges that the bomb threats were connected with Thompson’s anger over the breakup of a romantic relationship. Shortly after Thompson and his ex-girlfriend split, Thompson embarked on “a sustained campaign to harass and intimidate” the woman, including making bomb threats in her name, the complaint says. According to the FBI, Thompson made four bomb threats in his ex-girlfriend’s name and then four in his own name, with the intention of misleading people into thinking she was orchestrating an attack campaign against him.
This points to Juan’s hate for the Jewish people and in particular the state of Israel. He not only wanted to attack his girlfriend, but he also wanted to terrorize the Jewish community. This is not the way ordinary people think and act.
Thompson will face charges and will likely face jail time. This is followed on the heels of Trump’s acknowledgment that there have been threats against the Jewish community. This is not the first time that this man has lied, and hopefully, this will be the last opportunity that he has to spread his hate.
His former employers at the Intercept released this statement upon learning of his arrest:
We were horrified to learn this morning that Juan Thompson, a former employee of The Intercept, has been arrested in connection with bomb threats against the ADL and multiple Jewish Community Centers in addition to cyberstalking. These actions are heinous and should be fully investigated and prosecuted. We have no information about the charges against Thompson other than what is included in the criminal complaint. Thompson worked for The Intercept from November 2014 to January 2016, when he was fired after we discovered that he had fabricated sources and quotes in his articles.
