While he looks like a poor man’s Axl Rose, Joshua Wahl prefers guns over roses.
A suspected double murderer has been indicted in Alaska for allegedly threatening a Florida sheriff with “lasers that could blind for life” after he held a news conference denouncing anti-Semitic and pro-Nazi messages, federal prosecutors said Tuesday.
A federal grand jury indicted Joshua Wahl, 31, for allegedly threatening Michael Chitwood, the sheriff of Volusia County in Florida. He is charged with cyberstalking and four counts of transmitting a threat in interstate commerce, the Justice Department said.
“Until you get the balls to arrest me (in real life) I’ll still be here,” he allegedly wrote. “Kill S***wood in real life, shoot him in the f****** head with an overpressure 10mm round,” Wahl wrote, according to the indictment.
And he’s naturally as sharp as a bowling ball:
“I just wanted to thank you. Your toothless threats to arrest me for the last 3 weeks have woken me from my funk,” Wahl allegedly wrote in the email, Fox Orlando reported. “Did you know that a laser like that can get hotter than the sun very fast? You have inspired me to continue my work. So now (I’m) sitting here, armed to the teeth with binary explosives, 37mm launchers, lasers that blind for life in 1/15th a second and (anti-level) 4 tungsten tip ammo with weapons with binary triggers, and it’s all (because) of your toothless threats toward me the last 3 weeks. (Thank you) for re-igniting my passions.”
And here I was thinking we had the monopoly on space lazers.
The only thing toothless here, I suspect, is Wahl.
Naturally, dude’s so dumb, he cannot do the “anti-Zionist-not-antisemite” thing well at all:
The prosecutors in the Wahl indictment said Wahl had posted antisemitic messages on 4chan before. The indictment specifically mentions an instance in November 2019, when he threatened to kill all Jewish and Israeli children, and included a photo of a pipe bomb.
