Indiana police arrested a man who claimed an affiliation with Las Vegas cop killers, Tea Partiers Jerad and Amanda Miller, after social media threats to “blow the Tippecanoe County Courthouse to pieces,” according to court documents.
Acting on a tip from a concerned citizen, police discovered that Samuel Bradbury, 22, of Pine Village, IN, allegedly posted death threats against a county judge, an Indiana Supreme Court justice, and two law enforcement officers on Facebook.
Bradbury claimed to be the leader of a group called “765 Anarchists”–a group the would-be Freedumb Jihadist says counted Jerad and Amanda Miller among its membership. He says that the group has been forming for years for the purpose of killing local law enforcement officers.
In some posts, Bradbury discussed gathering thermite and other explosive devices for his suicide bombing.
Bradbury’s Facebook likes include “No Tears for Dead Cops,” “I HATE COPS,” “Illuminati Exposed,” and Ron Paul. His profile is largely private, but it does include a rather attractive photo of him wearing a loincloth.
In one of diaper fetishist Jerad Miller‘s insane YouTube videos he describes the Tippecanoe County Courthouse as a “monument to authoritarianism.” Bradbury agreed, apparently, and planned to remove that monument from existence.
Police executed search warrants at residences frequented by Bradbury, and found chemicals that resting indicates are components of explosive devices.
Bradbury was booked on June 21 at Tippecanoe County Jail, where is is being held on a $100,000 bond. He faces four Class C felony intimidation charges–one for each official he threatened by name.
He will face federal charges; further information on those will be available after he appears in District Court.
