An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Michael Leshawn McCullum, 33, Iowa City, Iowa
Man Jailed For Copycat Facebook Police Death Threats Days AFTER a Georgia woman was arrested for a Facebook post advocating the shooting of “every white cop in the nation,” an Iowa man cribbed the threatening words for his own Facebook page, a copy and paste job that now has him locked up in jail. Michael Leshawn McCullum, 30, was arrested Tuesday by Iowa City cops on a warrant charging him with harassment. Pictured above, McCullum is being held on $100,000 bail on the aggravated misdemeanor count. According to investigators, McCullum earlier this month posted a Facebook message stating, “I’ve thought about shooting every white cop I see in the head until I’m either caught by the police or killed by them.” He added, “Ha!!!! I think I can pull it off. Might kill at least fifteen tomorrow. I’m plotting now.” McCullum’s post came in the days following the Baltimore riots. Police allege that he made the threat using the online alias “Mike Jones.” The threatening words attributed to McCullum first appeared on the Facebook page of Ebony Dickens, a 33-year-old mother from suburban Atlanta. As Baltimore rioters looted businesses and torched buildings, Dickens allegedly posted an April 27 Facebook message announcing that, “All Black ppl should rise up and shoot at every white cop in the nation starting NOW.” The message continued, “I condone black on white killing. I’ve thought about shooting every white cop I see in the head until I’m either caught by the police or killed by them. Ha!!!! I think I can pull it off. Might kill at least fifteen tomorrow. I’m plotting now.” Dickens’s arrest was widely reported, with many news accounts including transcripts of her alleged Facebook threat, which closed with the words “Death to all white cops nationwide.” Charged with making terroristic threats, Dickens is free on $10,000 bond and has been ordered to stop using her social media accounts. The criminal complaint charging McCullum with harassment lists the incident date as May 1, two days after Dickens was arrested. McCullum, now being held in the Muscatine County jail, has a lengthy rap sheet that includes convictions for drunk driving, pot possession, trespass, possession of drug paraphernalia, and assault on a peace officer. He is quite familiar with jail.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Rita Re: PPS viewer Dear Webby, What program do you use for viewing PPS files? I am not going to buy Microsoft Office just for PPS. Thanks Rita Dear Rita There are many programs, that would do, but since I already have Open Office, it opens them quite nicely, unless some snooty idiot passworded them, requiring you to beg for an unlocked version. Usually those are a waste of time anyway. For my purposes, "Impress", included in Open Office, works well enough. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ On their 50th wedding anniversary and during the banquet celebrating it, Tom was asked to give his friends a brief account of the benefits of a marriage of such long duration. "Tell us Tom, just what is it you have learned from all those wonderful years with your wife?" Tom responds, "Well, I've learned that marriage is the best teacher of all. It teaches you loyalty, meekness, forbearance, self-restraint, forgiveness -- and a great many other qualities you wouldn't have needed if you'd stayed single." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com All Natural Non-Stick Cooking Spray I'm trying to eliminate unwanted chemicals from our diet.

_____________________________________________________ In the men's room at work, the boss placed a sign directly above the sink. It had a single word on it, "THINK!" The next day, when he went to the men's room, he looked at the sign and right below it, immediately above the soap dispenser, someone had carefully lettered another sign which read, "THOAP!" _____________________________________________________ A husband had been away for a few months and had a romantic evening planned for him and his wife. He sent the two older kids to the movies but could not persuade the youngest boy to go along. Finally he makes a deal with the boy. If the boy will go sit on the curb in front of their house, the father will give the boy $5 for every man he sees go by in a red hat. A while later the little boy comes running into the house and bangs on the bedroom door and shouts "Dad, are you sure you can afford that ? You'd better come outside, there's a Shriner convention in town and they are all marching up our street. Looks like about 650 of them." ____________________________________________________
