And he was so young – barely 21-years-old!
He called himself “the catalyst for the American revolution.”
According to Reuters:
“Joshua Docter, 21, of Holland, Michigan was charged on Monday by the office of Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel with threatening terrorism and using a computer to commit a crime. Each of these carry a sentence of up to twenty years in prison if he is convicted.”
“Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel has charged a Holland man with crimes for making death threats against President Joe Biden, U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. In those posts, Docter stated he would use a gun to shoot and kill the elected officials and would ‘be the catalyst’ for a new American revolution,” the statement added. “Docter also had information on how to make a bomb and where to find the necessary materials on his smartphone.”
He turned himself in this Monday, facing a judge the very next day without a lawyer. The FBI caught him after receiving a tip for making the alleged threats on social media (on iFunny).
After this, the case was taken over by the Michigan State Police.
“Threatening elected officials is against the law and my office will prosecute those who attempt to intimidate or terrorize our state and federal leaders,” Nessel added in a statement of her own, according to WHTC. “I appreciate the thorough investigative work by the FBI and Michigan State Police on this case, and I consider it another excellent example of showcasing the dedication that those working in law enforcement have to protect the public.”
