    ‘Erase Them’: Former Marine Charged for Allegedly Planning Attack on ‘White People’ – By Drew F. Lawrence (Military.com) / May 14, 2024

    Joshua Cobb, 23, was arrested Friday and charged with transmitting a threat in interstate and foreign commerce after allegedly posting plans for a mass attack in his home state of New Jersey on social media the U.S. attorney’s office for the state said Monday.

    “I want to cause mayhem on the white community. The reason I specifically want to target white people is because as a Black male, they will never understand my struggles,” Cobb allegedly wrote in 2022, more than a year before he joined the Marine Corps.

    “I want to erase them,” he posted, according to a criminal complaint filed by prosecutors last week. “All of them really, but in this case as many as I possibly can.”

    Citing Marine Corps records, prosecutors said that Cobb attended basic training at Parris Island, South Carolina, in June 2023. He then reported for duty to the Marine Corps Air-Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms in California the following February, only to be discharged earlier this month, the complaint indicated.
