Norman Leboon, Muslim Convert Arrested in Death Threat Against Rep Eric Cantor
A YouTube threat against Representative Eric Cantor has led to an arrest:
A 33-year-old Pennsylvania man has been arrested for threatening to kill Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor, the number two Republican in the House of Representatives, the Justice Department announced Monday.Could it be this Norman Leboon?
Norman Leboon, a resident of Philadelphia, was charged in a two-count complaint with threatening to kill Cantor and his family. Leboon made the threat in a YouTube Internet video sent to Google earlier this month, according to a Justice Department news release.
One of the allegations against Verizon in the lawsuit is made by Philadelphia resident Norman LeBoon, who says after he read of the alleged surveillance of US citizens, he began asking Verizon if his landline communications were being shared. LeBoon says he eventually spoke with “Ellen” in Verizon customer service, who told him, “I can tell you, Mr. LeBoon, that your records have been shared with the government, but that’s between you and me.… They [Verizon] are going to deny it because of national security. The government is denying it and we have to deny it, too. Around here we are saying that Verizon has ‘plausible deniability.’”And is this longwinded loon, Norman Leboon Sr. who claims to be a Shia Muslim, one and the same?
Michelle Malkin links to one of Leboon's YouTube accounts in which he claims to be the Mahdi.
UPDATE by Rusty: This guy is well known both on YouTube and on LiveLeak. In fact, we did a post about him a few months ago. I'll have to check the archives and find it.
The gist: the guy is a nut.
Update by Stable Hand: This dude is a gay American Shia Muslim suffering from MS who was active in CAIR. A person following him on line watched his mental breakdown. The bartender, a member of the YouTube Smackdown team. alerted me to his recent vids. Leboon was threatening to kill most everyone, Youtube employees, ABC employees, etc. & posted a lot of videos on his Youtube acct app 3 weeks ago stating such.
Youtube search for his vids here. It's mind boggling the amount of crazy vids he did.
According to bartender and others, the FBI & Muslim community thought he was a wacko and didn't pay much attention to him.
Thank God the FBI finally took notice He could have hurt a lot of people if he had carried out his threats. The dude is in need of extensive psychiatric care.
Stable Hand: Big h/t to bartender!!
