Let’s be clear it doesn’t matter to me what this guy’s former profession was, he’s a complete idiot for doing what he did. With that said, I have two articles linked concerning the arrest of Juan Thompson’s JCC bomb threats below. Please read both and compare the info –  PB/TK 
Article #1 – FBI Arrests Lefty Blogger for Allegedly Making Bomb Threats Against Eight Jewish Centers –  By Joe Simonson –  heatst.com –  March 3, 2017

The FBI on Friday morning arrested a writer for several popular liberal blogs as part of its investigation into the dozens of bomb threats against Jewish community centers nationwide. They say the man made some of the threats in the name of an ex girlfriend as a way to exact revenge on her.

Juan Thompson, 31, of St. Louis, Missouri, has been charged with cyberstalking and making at least eight separate bomb threats against Jewish organizations. Thompson formally worked for Glenn Greenwald’s The Intercept and has written for the popular liberal blogs like Daily Kos.

The FBI’s complaint alleges that the bomb threats were connected with Thompson’s anger over the breakup of a romantic relationship. Shortly after Thompson and his ex-girlfriend split, Thompson embarked on “a sustained campaign to harass and intimidate” the woman, including making bomb threats in her name, the complaint says. According to the FBI, Thompson made four bomb threats in his ex-girlfriend’s name and then four in his own name, with the intention of misleading people into thinking she was orchestrating an attack campaign against him.

Thompson’s Twitter has been silent for the last three days, but his last tweets reference a “white nasty woman,” who “filed a false lie” against him. (Thompson is African-American.) His tweets also reference a visit by the Secret Service over some of “his politics” and behavior online.

Article #2 – Fired reporter accused of threatening some Jewish centers, cyber-stalking By Eric Levenson and AnneClaire Staple – CNN – March 3, 2017

New York (CNN)A former reporter who was fired for fabricating sources was arrested Friday and accused of making some of the bomb threats against Jewish institutions that have so rattled Jews recently.

Juan Thompson, 31, was charged with one count of cyber-stalking for making at least eight threats as part of an attempt to intimidate a particular person after their romantic relationship ended, according to a criminal complaint filed in the Southern District of New York.
The accusation against Thompson accounts for just a small minority of the 101 total bomb threats that have been received by Jewish institutions since 2017 began, according to data from the JCC Association of North America.
“No one has been arrested for making the nationwide robocall JCC threats,” New York State Police’s Beau Duffy said. “That’s still an active FBI investigation.”
The complaint alleges Thompson had emailed and phoned in threats to the Anti-Defamation League and other Jewish institutions. Some of those threats mentioned a “Jewish Newtown,” according to the complaint, an apparent reference to the infamous 2012 school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
Thompson made some of the threats in the victim’s name, while others were made in his own name, according to the complaint. Thompson then claimed that those threats had actually been made by the victim in an attempt to frame him, the complaint alleges.
It could not be immediately determined if Thompson has an attorney.
