Man Arrested for Facebook Post Threatening Kids

facebook-postPORTER RANCH, Calif. (KTLA) — Police say a man was arrested after Homeland Security agents were tipped off to several disturbing posts on his Facebook page, including threats against children.

Mohammad Akbar Baraki, 37, reportedly wrote: “Newtown is just the beginning of the attacks…more kids must be killed if anyone watched the bin Laden move will be shot at site…this is a final warning to all Americans.”

Authorities also found two air rifles in Baraki’s home on Darby Avenue in Porter Ranch.

Baraki is on probation for a drug charge and police say the guns are a violation of his probation.

The Barakis live within a few blocks of an elementary school.
