Man Jailed For Threats Against NPR Hosts

Crosby, whose rap sheet includes separate convictions for robbery and heroin possession, has been held without bail since his January 26 arrest inside a library at the University of Southern Maine, from which he graduated in 2009. During a search of Crosby’s Volvo station wagon following his bust, FBI agents found a shotgun and shells in the vehicle, according to court records.

According to an affidavit sworn by FBI Agent Nathan Jacobs, Crosby sent more than 20 bizarre, and often threatening, messages to NPR via a “Contact Us” form on the organization’s web site. Many of the messages—which were sent during a two-month period ending with Crosby’s arrest—“referenced ‘kikes’ and contained other generalized threats directed toward NPR,” Jacobs noted.

Nah, talking heads on the A.M. radio and Faux News didn’t have anything to do with this, this sick man isn’t their proxy.
