On Friday, a California man was sentenced to one year and six months' imprisonment for threatening to murder Ajit Pai, the Federal Chancellor and his family, on the grounds of an uncontested net neutrality of the Supreme Court.
There was a threat in December 2017 when the FCC decided to cancel Net neutrality regulations under Pai's leadership. As the election day approached, a man named Markara Man (33) began sending emails threatening Pai and his family.
The first email blamed the abolition of Internet neutrality and Pai's causing teenagers. He is killed by suicide. The following email was reported to convey the apparent threat to kill Pai and his family, including certain addresses around Arlington, Virginia. At the end, the image of the president and his family was included.
This is where the FBI led a man and his home in Norwalk, California, last June. He was arrested in June. The man said he sent an e-mail to the investigator at "[email protected]" to look "tough". The man insisted that the e-mail was merely afraid of the pie, and claimed that he did not actually intend to hurt him or her. family.
After FBI investigators arrived at Mans' house, a court document found that they reset the phone at the factory and erase the evidence. When the investigator learned of the reset, Man lied to them and said they had received a month-old phone call and had not yet installed it.
A US lawyer for Virginia G. Zachary Terwilliger, in a statement, "It is not only unforgivable but criminal to threaten to kill a federal bureaucracy's family because of disagreements over policy."
Since Pai announced that he will reverse Internet neutrality, he has begun to take on the threats. The committee said that the Wall Street Journal and his family were still threatened for six months after the commission's vote, and that 24/7 security was needed as a result, and could not compete in the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Since his hard work in net neutrality, he has attended regularly.
