Mail bomb suspect threatened to unleash attack ‘worse than 9/11’

NEW YORK POST:

The suspected Florida mail bomber once threatened to blow up his local utility company — telling a representative “it would be worse than September 11th” — if they ever turned off his electricity, according to cops.

“The defendant contacted a [rep] from Florida Power and Light,” a Miami Police report reads.

Cesar Sayoc, 56, contacted the company by telephone and “threatened to blow up” the FP&L building back in August 2002, the report states.

He also “threatened that something would happen to the FP&L representative if they cut his electricity.”

Authorities wrote up the incident as a “threat to bomb” and “threaten to discharge destructive device.” Sayoc later pleaded guilty and got sentenced to one year of probation.

The New York native has been arrested multiple times in the past for a slew of crimes — including suspicion of grand theft, battery, drug possession and fraud.

He has been known to not only threaten people in his everyday life, but online as well.

Sayoc used his Twitter account to target prominent Democrats, actors and even teenage activists, such as Parkland survivor David Hogg. He once threatened former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick with a picture of a beheaded goat, saying “see you real soon.”
