California man arrested for threatening the family of FCC Chair Ajit Pai

Sacha SanguinettiJuly 3, 2018

Note: Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai is a native of Parsons, Kansas. The contents of this article are credited to Tom Taylor, author of the daily radio trade newsletter “Tom Taylor NOW.”

Markara Man was “angry” about Pai leading the charge to roll back the agency’s 2015 Net Neutrality policy, and (says Politico), has since written an apology to Pai. He said “I’m sorry I made a threat against your kids. That was crossing the line.” Then he added “I hope you’ll change your mind [about the rollback]…but I doubt it.”

Markara Man sent three emails to Pai on December 20, to both his FCC and personal accounts. He listed the names and addresses of three pre-school facilities around Arlington, VA and (chillingly) wrote “I will find your children and I will kill them.” He’s been charged with threatening to murder the immediate family of a federal official.

Passions have risen high about Net Neutrality, including a demonstration at December FCC Open Meeting that interrupted the proceedings. There were also demonstrations outside the Commission offices in Southwest D.C.
