Cambridge Man Arrested for Threatening ICE Officers on Twitter

TWEETING to his 400+ followers Cambridge resident, Brandon Ziobrowski, called for violence against Immigration and Customs Officers last month. Now, he has been arrested and his Twitter account has been suspended.

He has released other tweets that included anti-police rhetoric. Ziobrowski even went as far as saying people who shoot police “should be awarded a medal”. The tweet that made rounds was:

His tweets grew more and more aggressive and violent since he created his Twitter in 2009 under the moniker “Vine_II”. He has expressed his desire to “slit” Senator John McCain’s throat a number of times and cause physical and life-ending violence to officers of the law.

“Guns should only be legal for shooting the police like the second amendment intended.” Read another tweet from his account on February of 2018.

He was at New York at the time of his arrest. Since his arrest he has been released on a $50,000 bond with limitations and an ankle bracelet. He will appear in Boston Court August 15.
