Columbus man arrested for allegedly making anti-Semitic threats toward school

Quote:
A Columbus man is charged with making terroristic threats after anti-Semitic statements and photos were found posted by him on social media.

Court documents say Thomas Develin, 24, posted photos of himself posing with a semi-automatic handgun on March 11 while he was working as a private security guard for Columbus Torah Academy in east Columbus. The posts were found on the social media platform, Discord.

According to the court documents, Develin posted statements that said, "I'm at a Jewish school and about to make it everyone's problem," and, "The playground is about to turn into a self-defense situation."

Court documents also state Develin posted comments saying he "wanted to shoot parents coming to pick up their children."

The Columbus Torah Academy also released a statement to 10TV, saying immediate actions were taken to identify the source of the threat and that there is currently no risk to the campus.

Security will be provided by the Columbus Division of Police on Friday, Columbus Torah Academy officials added.

The Anti-Defamation League said that, while members are thankful no lives were taken, the threat is a "reminder of the ongoing security challenges facing the Jewish community."

Develin enlisted in the Ohio National Guard in October 2016. The guard released a statement to 10TV, saying it was aware of the alleged actions by Develin and no further comment will be provided.

Develin was arraigned Friday in Franklin County Municipal Court and is being held on $1 million bond.

Anger management issues? Mental illness? Racism? White Supremacy? Demonic possession? Immaturity? Just basically a natural born as*hole?
All of the above?
Thankfully he didn't get the chance to pull the trigger.

I suppose the punchline is dependent upon knowing who Nicholas Fuentes is.

He's a notorious, high profile American white nationalist, despite his Latino name.
