What are the warning signs of mental illness?
A Kent man suspected of threatening synagogues, President Donald Trump’s family and members of the media in Southern California was arrested Wednesday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.
Chase Bliss Colasurdo, 27, was scheduled to make his initial court appearance Thursday.
According to a press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office:
He allegedly posted on social media and sent messages to media organizations that he was going to execute members of Trump’s family, and someone reported the posts to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in March.
He also posted a photo of a hand pointing a gun at a photo of a Trump family member.
When investigators contacted him, Colasurdo allegedly said someone had hacked his social media accounts.
However, he kept making threats, including a post where he said it was time to bomb synagogues.
He also bought a gun holster, bulletproof vest and ammunition, and tried unsuccessfully to buy a gun.
FBI agents arrested him without incident.
