This week in Florida, the 13-year-old son of discredited conspiracy theorist and twice-failed Democrat congressional candidate Rebekah Jones was arrested for allegedly threatening to shoot up a school.
Jones wrote on Twitter that her son had been removed based on the governor’s order. She even claimed that in order to protect her husband and daughter, she sent them to live in another state. Her tweet said this was the reality of living in Florida under DeSantis.
She alleged they hauled her son away because he had a political target on his back and for sharing memes with classmates and friends. After all, she defeated that short ******* who wants to be president, so DeSantis is targeting her whole family. She said that they abducted her son because this is what Florida has resulted in taking the offspring of your political opponent as a form of political retaliation.
NBC News reported that police apprehended and charged Jones’ son with written or electronic threats to conduct a mass shooting or terrorist act, which is a second-degree felony in Florida.
Santa Rosa County Sheriff Bob Johnson told local media that one of the students in the school received a Snapchat from this individual that read, ‘I’m feeling silly today,” “I may kill a bunch of people.” It also said that the individual might blow up a building with a bunch of people in it. The student showed it to a resource officer, who then contacted a resource officer at Holley-Navarre Middle School, where this individual formerly attended. The police department took it from there.
The execution was issued for a search warrant on the suspect’s Snapchat account led to the recovery of several messages in February that generally referenced the following:
- Shooting up the school
- Obtaining a firearm, and shooting
- References to always carrying a weapon
- References to stabbing people
- References to murdering people and then committing suicide.
- Buying a natural selection shirt,
- Mentioning the fact that many people don’t recognize the Columbine gunmen.
Lastly, he mentioned taking new antidepressant medicines for three to four weeks. He said they aren’t working yet, but they’re supposed to by now. He said that since he had no prospect of getting better, he might as well murder the failures at school.
Clearly, they were far more than memes. Furthermore, video footage contradicts Jones’ claim that DeSantis “kidnapped” her son because she is seen bringing him to the police station.
