Geniuses everywhere. This is why we can’t have nice things:
A 20-year-old man who allegedly threatened to shoot someone in exchange for 100 retweets and publish it on Twitter has been arrested, Los Angeles Police Department officials said Thursday.
Dakkari Dijon McAnuff, of Los Angeles, was booked Wednesday on suspicion of making criminal threats, police said. He remained in jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.
Police later determined the weapon was an air rifle, which was recovered from McAunuff’s home.

An officer at the scene should have used the LAPD twitter account to tweet “100 RTs and we give this kid a beating LOL jk”. On second thought, after finding a picture of this kid (left) I’m sure the LAPD doesn’t want to go down that road again even in a joking fashion.
Remember when a fan of the rapper J Cole threatened to kill his sister if he didn’t get a J Cole retweet? Like I said… geniuses everywhere. *insert something about education system, rap music, video games, and glorified thug culture here*
