O’Fallon Man Indicted for Threats Against City Hall, Police

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – U.S. Attorney Stephen R. Wiggington says a former O’Fallon, Illinois man has been charged with conveying false threats to O’Fallon Police and City Hall in November, 2006.

28-year-old Justin Lamar Kidd, an African American, is accused of mailing a letter to O’Fallon PD stating, “Get all the blacks from Chevy Chase Apartments from out of O’Fallon before we burn the hole [sic] complex down. KKK warning.”

Another letter, mailed to the O’Fallon City Hall, reads, “Get all the blacks out of O’Fallon before we start burning the[ir] houses down.”

The indictment claims Kidd sent the threats knowing them to be false.

The charges carry a maximum sentence of ten years in prison and $250,000 fine.

    It’s obviously a hate crime, so add that to the list. It’s kinda funny, actually, African Americans are disproportionately charged with the “hate crime” provisions of our laws that automatically increase penalties. The funny part is that these laws were intended to protect rather than incarcerate minorities.
