Police arrested a 45-year-old Army veteran after he made violent threats, which included promising to “murder as many people as I can.”
According to the Miami Herald, Leo Arong Jr. of Daytona Beach, Florida, was taken into custody on Thursday. He made several threatening statements in a video posted to YouTube.
“I hate jews because I am an inbred LOSER. We have to kill jews in order for LOSERS like me to feel relevant. Thank you,” police quoted Arong as saying.
“I should have been aborted at birth, to save this country from my coming mass killings of Americans. Thank you.
“I don’t want Red Flag laws passed because the FBI might raid my residence and confiscate the weapons I will use to kill other Americans. Thank you.”
He added, “I hate myself. I am uglier than the El Paso shooter, and girls don’t like me, so I will murder as many people as I can. Thank you.”
Police searched Arong’s home and did not locate any weapons, but he was charged with making written threats to commit a mass shooting.
