A Los Angeles man was arrested for allegedly offering to shoot someone for 100 retweets.
March. 14 (UPI) –
A Los Angeles man who allegedly offered to shoot someone in exchange for 100 re-tweets and then post the results on Twitter, was arrested when police were able to trace the account back to his home.
Dakkari Dijon McAnuff was arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of making criminal threats.
A tweet from the @StillDMC account, which has since been taken down, showed a picture of a rifle pointed down at a street accompanied by a caption reading, “100 [retweets] and I’ll shoot someone walking.”
When police arrived at the 20-year-old’s home, they discovered an air rifle.
He was being held on $50,000 bail and either posted it, or got access to the Internet in jail.
Man threatens others for re-tweets,
Cops got him later on their beat;
He wasn’t so nice,
Please take my advice,
It’s something he should never repeat.
Why shoot someone for recognition?
That’s really a psycho condition;
Be kind toward all folks,
Just smile; tell some jokes,
Engage in a little cognition.
He was caught for making some threats,
Would he do it is anyone’s bet;
He was holding a rifle,
And that is no trifle,
Now the guy is under arrest.
