13-Year-Old Arrested, Charged with Making Terroristic Threats Against Cobb NAACP

It turns out a 13-year-old boy is behind a series of terroristic voice messages left at an NAACP branch office in Cobb County, Ga.

The Marietta Police Department was alerted to the racist threats last month by a member of the organization’s local branch. Officials said the call came in around 1:15 a.m. on Feb. 25, after which the unknown caller left the “disturbing” messages.

“My number is kill n—–s 101. My name, Johnny Rebel,” the caller said. “My profession [is] murdering Black people. F–k you stupid f—–g n—–r … F—–g kill yourself. Stupid n—a loving Jews.”

The organization’s president, Phyllis Blake, said she was shaken by the threats.

“It’s just unbelievable that we have people like this in our world,” Blake told local station 11 Alive. “We just have to remember when we hear that not to let us deter us from what we’re doing but to continue to fight for everyone.”

With the help of the FBI, Cobb County and Marietta City detectives were able to investigate the messages and determine it was a 13-year-old child. Police said it was hard to guess the age of the caller at first because the teen had used some sort of voice disguising device.

Investigators have since charged the teen with making terrorist threats, according to the station. Because of his age, police will not release his identity.
