Berkeley Man Arrested After Threatening to Kill, Beat and Rob Asians on Social Media
A Berkeley, California man was taken into custody after using social media to exchange threats about the killing of Asians. Reginald Jackson, a former gang member, allegedly wrote about the beating, blowing up and robbing Asians before the lunar new year.
His Twitter and Instagram posts, which have now been deleted, are being used in an investigation by the Oakland Police Department, according to ABC7 news anchor Dion Lim. Authorities identified Jackson as a suspect with a list of charges, including possession of an AR-15 assault rifle and attempted robbery as a minor. At a hearing on Monday, a Dublin judge expressed "incredible concern" about the frequency of Jackson's cases. Social media users, the Oakland Police Department, the Alameda District Attorney's Office, and the Alameda County Parole Department worked together to arrest Jackson. The judge has reportedly given bail of $ 190,000. Jackson's next appearance in court is Tuesday morning.
