A man with a history of threatening politicians and law enforcement has been arrested by federal agents in New York after offering money to anyone who would kill an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent.
On July 2, 33-year-old Brandon Ziobrowski of Cambridge, Mass., tweeted that he would give “$500 to anyone who kills an ice [sic] agent.”
“Seriously who else can pledge get in on this let’s make it work,” Ziobrowski added.
Ziobrowski was arrested Thursday morning and charged with one count of use of interstate and foreign commerce to transmit a threat and injure another person, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts. The indictment states that Ziobrowski has a habit of threatening federal employees on Twitter. He previously tweeted his desire to “slit” the throat Sen. John McCain, and began posting tweets promoting violence against law enforcement in February; he specifically began targeting ICE in March.
Additionally, FBI Special Agent in Charge Harold Shaw said that Ziobrowski had expressed “extreme anti-U.S.” rhetoric on his Twitter account, and professed support for “socialist” and “communist” ideology. His account was finally suspended in July at the request of law enforcement.
U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling told reporters at a news conference that Ziobrowski “appears to be very much against ICE and its mission.”
“Feeling strong on this subject is fine. Putting people’s lives in danger, not fine,” Lelling added.
Ziobrowski’s arrest comes after a rash of attacks on ICE agents and law enforcement in general – and Democrat politicians are to blame. People like Bernie Sanders, Kirstin Gillibrand, and Bill de Blasio have issued calls to abolish ICE.

Last month, Reps. Mark Pocan (D-WI), Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), and Adriano Espaillat (D-NY) even introduced legislation to abolish ICE and transfer the agency’s responsibilities elsewhere. When members of Congress – who are supposed to support and enforce our nation’s laws – are demonizing ICE agents simply for doing their job, is it really any surprise that people like Ziobrowski exist?

The show case of the left. Wanting to kill or hurt anyone that they don’t like. This kind of crap show’s every day from the press and TV.
also every one who gets arrested having a mask covering there faces must have there mug shots posted as well as sent home to there family so they can see the kind of child they raised
These idiots need to be prosecuted, and a severe sentence administered immediately if not sooner. The status of said offense and it punishment should be prominently publicized . There needs to be a much greater effort to bring to justice those persons “assaulting” others at protest gatherings. There is evidence of severe ,brutal assaults that have gone unpunished . When these attacks on peaceful protesters occur ,there should be mass arrests . Prosecution should follow the guide line of an armed robbery , If someone is shot you do NOT have to be the one with the gun ,as you are guilty having participated .
Liberalism is an emotional disorder.
Sure he is against ICE and ICE’s mission. This cretin is a Communist Socialist like the Cortez woman from NYC, and Socialist Communist only want to start revolutions and wars of extermination. So what else is Brandon Ziobrowski doing these days?
i think a one way ticket to Venezuela so they can see how well it works in real world terms
While brandon’s issues are very problematic, why he’d hate and threaten to “slit the throat” of the soon to be deceased senator from Arizona is even more difficult to thrash out. After all mr. ziobrowski and mccain are playing for the same team and apparently have been for a long time so what,s the deal?
SEND THIS SOCIALIST CUC KOO BIRD TO THE POKEY PREFERABLY TO THE FEDERAL POKEY.HE NEEDSS ABOUT 20YEARS TO CURE HIS MENTAL ILLNESS???just my opinion???
More like 300 years, in solitary.
Time to “Hang ’em High”
The only thing the democrats have to off us is a Liberal Dose of stupidity!
These actions are a perfect example of their loony thinking.
I hope he realizes it’s a federal crime not a local one. No easy dismissal or probation. Now, can we also arrest Rosie the wack job, and insane Maxine? Throw in that fat ugly pr**k Moore and son of Jane, Peter just for drill. These loonies shouldn’t be walking around among the decent peoples.
I can’t believe well, yes I can. Every day another Dem makes a fool of themselves worse than their buddy on the day before.
Do I smell Pocahontas money here?
another unhinged Demorat…
