Florida Man Accused of Threatening NYC Mass Shooting Over Thanksgiving
Robert Trout III, a 19-year-old Florida man, has been accused of threatening a mass shooting in New York City over the Thanksgiving weekend. According to new documents in Tampa Federal Court, Trout was promoting himself as a mixed martial arts fighter on social media, advertising appearances at various locations on Florida’s Gulf Coast. A criminal complaint revealed that Trout has a history of criminal offenses, including aggravated assault, possession of a concealed weapon, resisting arrest without violence, and theft. He was arrested on November 22 after posting a video online in which he displayed firearms with multiple rounds, and stated his plans to “cause havoc on the subway.” In the video, Trout specifically stated his intention to shoot anybody he saw on the train. He claimed to have magazines capable of holding 30 rounds and threatened to “hit up everybody on the f***in’ train.” If convicted of federal charges of making a “true threat” to injure other people in interstate communications, Trout faces five years in prison. A judge ordered him to be jailed while his case is pending trial. This alarming case of threatening behavior serves as a reminder of the potential dangers and risks associated with social media and the need for strict regulations on violent and threatening content. It also highlights the importance of vigilance and the swift response of law enforcement agencies in dealing with such threats to public safety.
