HARRISBURG, Pa. — Federal authorities say a Pennsylvania teenager already accused of trying to assist the Islamic State group also tweeted out the names and addresses of military personnel with threats of violence.

Harrisburg resident Jalil Ibn Ameer Aziz was charged Wednesday in a superseding federal indictment with solicitation to commit a crime of violence and transmitting a communication containing a threat to injure.

Prosecutors allege he tweeted the names, addresses, photographs and military branches of approximately 100 service members with statements such as "kill them in their own lands, behead them in their own homes, stab them to death as they walk their street thinking that they are safe."
Assistant federal public defender Thomas Thornton says the charges involve "a 19-year-old kid tweeting and retweeting" from his bedroom.

...is the whole 'kill them when they're walking thinking they're safe'. Is there any woman, anywhere on this site, who feels safe when out for any reason? Is there any MAN who feels safe?! I mean, I keep hearing it. It just doesn't match my life experiences at all.

I guess I don't understand the mindset. Maybe I'm just paranoid. No doubt enough people have thought it of me, and I'll just bet they're gangstalking me now!
