Two Alabama women arrested after social media post threatening to shoot Black people reported

Two 20-year-old women in Alabama were arrested last week after a video of someone threatening to shoot Black people was posted online.

One the women reportedly posted a video and made the threats June 23 on social media. In the video, she used racial slurs and showed a gun.

Students at a local college notified the school’s administration who contacted local police. She was charged with disorderly conduct and booked into a local jail.

Police later arrested another woman in connection with the video and charged her with disorderly conduct before booking her into jail.

Disorderly conduct is a misdemeanor charge.

The woman later arrested was released on a $500 bond. It was unclear if or when the other woman would be released from jail.

Opinion: These types of posts are becoming too common since the Buffalo Massacre. BNN has posted several briefs regarding similar threats. Disorderly conduct is a light charge compared to the threats that were made. The prosecutors need to upgrade their charges — they had shown themselves as a threat to society. These people have to be made an example of until it starts to become clear to people they will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
