FBI claims there is no threat, but should we really trust them? After all, the Orlando terrorist slipped through their fingers.
Authorities in California are investigating a Craigslist ad that threatened to carry out an Orlando-style massacre in San Diego.
10News reported that a viewer discovered the advertisement in the men-seeking-men section of the Craigslist San Diego personal ads, took a screenshot of it and sent it to the station.
According to the station, the post is title “We need more Orlando’s (sic),” and is accompanied by a hand firing a weapon.
“Orlando was long overdue. Cleanse your community of the filth that gives decent gay men and women a bad name. Those people were walking diseases, bug chasers, and thank god for AIDS and 9-11 and now Orlando. San Diego you are next,” the post read.
10News forwarded the screenshot to the San Diego Police Department and the FBI.
San Diego police Lt. Scott Wahl said the department will investigate the ad. Wahl said that police have extra police officers on patrol in place where people are known to gather in wake of the Orlando massacre.
FBI Special Agent Darrell Foxworth told the station that the bureau’s Joint Terrorism Task Force is also investigating the post. He said law enforcement officials will band together to find out who made the threat.
