A Powder Springs, Georgia, man turned himself into the Powder Springs Police Department after posting terrorist threats against police officers that were seen by many on Facebook.
Joshua James Bolieiro, who’s originally from Nashua, New Hampshire, posted the threat on Facebook on June 9, 2018 in which he stated after posting a YouTube video titled “Police Department Bloodbath Continues,” concerning the alleged police brutality that occurred in Mesa, Arizona, “If you are a police officer in Georgia, I suggest you pray to your God Satan that you don’t accidentally speak to me. You have to roll the dice with every single traffic stop. Im [sic] aiming to kill ANY police officer that dares to speak to me, with absolute zero questions for you. You speak, you die. Its [sic] that simple. Go ahead and test me. See how far you get.”
Those Facebook posts have been removed but were captured by other Facebook users.
Once word got out on Facebook, Bolieiro posted a video that has been seen by over 74,000 users and stated, “I removed the original post out of respect for Manchester Police Department in New Hampshire. This will provide you with more clarity on my actual position.”
The Powder Springs Police Department stated on their Facebook page that they have placed Bolieiro under arrest for terroristic threats in violation of Official Code of Georgia Annotated 16-11-37.
Bolieiro was taken into custody shortly after 1:00 PM on June 11, 2018, when he came to the Powder Springs Police Department voluntarily. When Bolieiro arrived, officers took him into custody on an arrest warrant that was issued through the Cobb County magistrate court.
“This was a collective effort between Powder Springs Police, Cobb Police, Cobb Sheriff’s Office and Cobb County DA’s Office,“ the police department said. “Powder Springs Police extends our gratitude to these agencies for their invaluable assistance.”
Bolieiro said he never intended to hurt any officers and he just wanted to get attention to “expose child sex trafficking rings and expose police brutality,” Fox5 Atlanta reported.
