Tennessee man arrested for threatening to "shoot up" a Planned Parenthood

Source: CBS News

A Tennessee man was arrested yesterday for allegedly threatening a mass shooting at a Planned Parenthood in Washington, D.C. The suspect is the third person to be charged for threatening violence against the abortion provider this month alone.

Authorities say that on August 13, Jacob Cooper, 20, used the website iFunny to post a message that said, "Make sure you tell them about how I plan to shoot up a planned parenthood facility in Washington D.C., on August 19th at 3pm."

Cooper allegedly posted a second comment on the website reading, "If you are a member of the FBI, CIA, whatever, and are on my profile I will trace your IP address and kill you if the opportunity arises. And I am dead serious about this. I'll do it with ricin, a bomb, or .308. Whatever it takes, then end result will be the same. I am serious about this. If I am personally contacted by any federal agents, I will do this. I will kill you. Again, I am serious. Sic semper tyrannis."

Last year, violent crime against abortion clinics hit a record-high, according to the National Abortion Federation, a Washington D.C.-based abortion rights group. Providers reported 1,369 violent acts against their clinics in 2018, up from 1,081 in 2017, according to the group's 2018 report. Incidents of disruption — which includes hate mail, obstruction and picketing — also hit a record-high in 2018, with providers reporting over 100,000 incidents across the country.

6. As an aside

a really great book, and rather important historically, is Crane Brinton's "Anatomy of Revolution". There are definite stages to radical change. I think he wrote it in the 1930s, but it was studied in college classrooms for more than half a century and is likely still a classic today. One of his stage was the Reign of Terror. He compared four Revolutions - American, Russian, French and ... gee the 4th escapes me ... Glorious Revolution of 1688? I guess I better read the book again.

9. There have been warnings for decades

And those who thought they were being very mature and calm about the whole thing came up with lists of reasons not to do anything.

"It's not as bad as Hitler" was a recurring example, even here.

Always forgetting to add: "Yet"

8. Good thing it's not terrorism

since he doesn't have a political agenda.

It is notable that the words terror, terrorist, or terrorism don't appear anywhere in this article.
