White Supremacist Arrested After Threatening To Murder Black College Students

in Daily New Bite/News/Politics/Racism by

A 24-year-old white supremacist was arrested after threatening the lives of African-American students at Howard University, a historically black school.

John Edgar Rust has finally been arrested for the death threats he made on November 11, 2015. During this time, he was attending the University of Missouri which was experiencing a period of racial unrest on the Columbia campus. So Rust did what racists do when they are upset, he got online and shared his bigoted rantings for all the world to see. He wrote,

I left MU [University of Missouri] yesterday because I couldn’t put up with it anymore. I go home to Maryland and what do I see? The same old s***. Turn on the news and it’s always the n***** causing trouble everywhere. So I’ve decided. Any n***** left at Howard University after 10 tomorrow will be the first to go. And any of those cheapskate n***** who try to get out using the metro will regret that choice real fast.

Authorities traced the IP address to a Panera Bread in Alexandria. They then found out that Rust had logged on with multiple devices at the same times the threats were made. To make things even easier, Rust paid with a credit card. After interviewing Rust and searching through his devices, he was charged with the transmission in interstate commerce of a communication containing threats to injure the person of another. If convicted, he could spend the next five years behind bars.

Rust is due in court on Thursday. But this isn’t his first rodeo. Rust is also a sex offender who was convicted of indecent liberties with a child by custodian and aggravated sexual battery in 2012.

  1. First, in the first sentence, you referred to Howard as “Harvard”. It might be a good idea to fix that typo.

    Regarding the article itself, Thank you for bringing this to light. Less than 5 minutes of a Google search brought the pertinent documentation of the basic facts to light, including several pages about his arrest for being a sexual predator of children and a page containing the court affidavit of an investigator.

    Good work, but please correct that typo!
