A ‘Black Lives Matter’ supporter who threatened to massacre 16 white students as part of a revenge attack for the shooting of Chicago teen Laquan McDonald has been allowed to return to campus by a federal judge.
21-year-old Jabari Dean was arrested on Monday after threatening to kill students and staff at the University of Chicago.
Dean posted a message on social media over the Thanksgiving weekend in which he laid out the details of his plan to carry out the racially-motivated rampage.
“This is my only warning,” wrote Dean. “At 10 a.m. on Monday mourning (sic) I am going to the campus quad of the University of Chicago. I will be armed with a M-4 Carbine and 2 Desert Eagles all fully loaded. I will execute aproximately (sic) 16 white male students and or staff, which is the same number of time (sic) Mcdonald (sic) was killed.”
“I then will die killing any number of white policemen that I can in the process. This is not a joke. I am to do my part to rid the world of the white devils. I expect you to do the same,” the post stated.
The threat led the University of Chicago to take the decision to close the campus after consultation with the FBI.
Dean was released to his mother on Tuesday morning from U.S. Dirksen Federal Courthouse pending a charge of transmitting a threat in interstate commerce.
However, U.S. Magistrate Judge Susan Cox has “allowed him to attend class,” according to reports, a privilege that presumably would not have been granted to a white student who had threatened to massacre over a dozen black people.
