A 29-year-old man from Detroit threatened to behead the New York Police Officer who put Eric Garner in a chokehold, that resulted in his death, and he was indicted by a Grand Jury for his actions.
According to a criminal complaint, obtained by BuzzFeed, Alvaro Eduardo Guzman-Telles wrote in a Facebook post, “Kill all cops on sight. No matter the circumstance.” When a commenter brought up the officer who killed Garner, he then responded, “I’m going to personally kill and behead Daniel Pantaleo. This is a written threat and has to be taken extremely seriously.”
The NY Daily News reports that his mother claims that her son has Asperger syndrome, and didn’t mean to write the posts. He was instructed by her to delete the posts after writing them in December 2014, but cops found that never happened when they visited her on January 1st.
The site reports:
He was arrested Jan. 7 in New Mexico and a Michigan grand jury indicted him Jan. 27, officials said.
The bereft mom told the Daily News her son says things he doesn’t mean because of his autism.
Asperger syndrome is a highly functional form of autism and can hinder the ability to behave appropriately in certain social situations.
Before threatening Pantaleo, Guzman-Telles posted general threats against cops, including, “Kill all cops on sight. No matter the circumstances,” according to the criminal complaint from Michigan.
After other posters made comments, Guzman-Telles wrote that he “stands behind his words.”
Guzman-Telles is in police custody at this current time, and his bail hearing is set for this Friday. We will keep you updated with details.
