Man Makes Social Media Threat To Kill Cops After Getting Warning On Traffic Stop

Marcus Jackson was stopped by police for expired license plates and then threatened to kill the officers on Facebook.

Muncie, IN - A 29-year-old man, who was previously convicted of resisting arrest and battery on law enforcement, posted on Facebook that he was going to kill a police officer after a traffic stop on Monday.

The series of events that led up to the social media post began when Marcus Deonte Jackson was pulled over by Muncie police at about 1:30 a.m. on Nov. 12, according to the Muncie Star Press.

Two officers stopped Jackson and informed him that his license plate was expired.

It had, in fact, expired exactly 90 minutes earlier, the Muncie Star Press reported.

Jackson told police he didn’t own the vehicle but would tell the owner.

Police then noticed a black .40-caliber handgun in the vehicle, and questioned Jackson about it, the Muncie Star Press reported.

It turned out that the driver had a license to carry a firearm.

Police said neither Jackson nor his passenger were cited or arrested during the stop, and afterwards, they went their separate ways.

Almost an hour later, at 2:20 a.m. the same night, the officers who had stopped Jackson learned he had posted a threat against them on Facebook.

The Muncie Star Press reported that Jackson wrote that the officers could be found as “civilians” – meaning off-duty – at a bar near Ball State University’s campus.

“Muncie police harassment has got to go where we need to kill a few cops,” Jackson wrote in an exchange with the man who had been in the car when he was stopped.

Then, ten minutes later, Jackson volunteered “I’ll kill a cop!!!!!” according to the Muncie Star Press.

Someone on Facebook asked Jackson to take down his comment, but he refused and confirmed his intentions in another message.

“You know I mean what I say. Jail ain’t... but a vacation away from loved ones and true responsibility,” Jackson replied.

Police arrested Jackson for the social media posts at 4:20 p.m. on Monday.

He told investigating officers that he had written the posts because police “keeps harassing everyone,” according to the Muncie Star Press.

Jackson also said he had since deleted the Facebook post “because it was stupid.”

He was charged with intimidation, which is a felony that carries a sentence of up to six years in prison, and released after he posted a $5,000 bond, the Muncie Star Press reported.

Jackson had an extensive history with police prior to his arrest for the social media threats.

He was previously convicted of battery on law enforcement, carrying a handgun without a permit, driving while suspended, possession of marijuana, and resisting law enforcement, according to the Muncie Star Press.

Wait a second,, Whoa!, This character has that kind of history and yet he is legally allowed to carry a gun?? Talk about a tragedy in the making. Why would anyone allow a nut case like this to carry a gun? A history of battery on law enforcement,carrying a gun without a permit, driving while suspended,,possession of marijuana and resisting law enforcement.. Am I the only one who sees something utterly crazy about allowing this psycho a permit to carry a gun???

A true moron. He and his passenger were let go without any citations yet the cops harassed them.

The thing I found most appalling was his attitude toward incarceration. If jail/prison is nothing but a great vacation to him then what is the deterrent?

Hey, my man wouldn’t mind a “vacation” to prison so he can visit family and “true responsibility”? Send his ungrateful ass there. He wasn’t as hard when he got arrested since he deleted the post and said it was “stupid”. He would be no loss to society. Especially one like this who has a permit to carry. Awesome work. And in the mean time, he’s the negative to us law abiding citizens who’ll be blamed when another shooting happens.

If he was convicted of those thing how come he was a LEGAL owner of a gun?

Typical display of his kind's attitude defending their unlawful behavior with or with the threat of violence.

Typical big mouthed thug. They like to think that they are intimidating because of their mouth. He needs to be in prison to discover being a tougher man’ Bitch. BTW: he apparently was not convicted of battery on a LEO or he would be in prison. Is that the liberal justice system at work in Illinois?
