Even though the Orange County Sheriff’s Office is reviewing the incident, the spokesperson said it didn’t appear to be a crime.

Really? Since the fuck when is threatening people not a crime in this country?

I know, when the people being threatened are not white!

These motherfuckers are quick to claim terrorism when they can accuse brown people of something but blatant terrorism “isn’t a crime.”

Fuck the people who did this and fuck the Orange County Sheriff’s Office! Go choke on a doughnut!
