Ex-Marine Joshua Cobb Charged After Online Threats To Kill White People –

Joshua Cobb, a Black New Jersey man and recent Marine, has been charged after he threatened to kill “as many (white people) as I possibly can” in a message he posted online. Federal agents say Cobb acknowledged he wrote the message in addition to making other threatening comments and identifying potential sites for a mass shooting. 

Cobb, 23, was charged with one count of transmitting a threat in interstate and foreign commerce and was supposed to make an appearance in Federal District Court on May 13, according to the United States attorney’s office in New Jersey. It is unclear if he appeared in court.

In a press release from the New Jersey U.S. Attorney’s Office, more notes were found after his phone was searched, which the office noted was executed lawfully.

“I’m ready to get to the good part of my story where I start taking you mother f*ckers out and killing you all,” one note read. “… My rampage will soon happen…I plan to now continue accumulating the necessary equipment needed to execute. Once all equipment is in, time will then tell. You will all die.”

Another note read, “It’s all a f*cking game, and you all are going to die. I currently lack the means necessary to kill as many as I intend to, but one day, I will have the available resources (finance) to purchase the appropriate weaponry for my killing(s).”

“The reason i specifically want to target white people is because as a black male, they will NEVER understand my struggles,” Cobb continued, as detailed in the complaint. “Same way, I will never understand their struggles, but I don’t care to.”

Cobb added: “I want to erase them. All of them, really, but in this case as many as I possibly can.”

In messages Cobb posted to another site, he briefly discussed his hopes of becoming a serial killer, writing at one point, “There is no way out for me. The only way out is bloodshed.”
