The FBI got involved earlier this month when a Washington State law enforcement officer, Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich, received death threats because he vowed not to enforce the state’s new gun control laws. He’s one of about a dozen Washington sheriffs who believe the new laws that passed in November via a controversial ballot measure are unconstitutional.

Making death threats is a crime. Making them via the internet is even dumber and a federal crime. Yesterday the angry poster received a visit from local law enforcement authorities.

The Spokesman-Review has the details . . .

Jaydin H. W. Ledford was peacefully taken into custody after authorities knocked on his door shortly before noon, according to Okanogan County Sheriff Tony Hawley.

Ledford was arrested on one count of harassment, a state charge, and booked into the Okanogan County Jail, but shortly afterward he was transferred to FBI custody, Hawley said.

Special Agent Christian Parker, who leads the FBI’s Spokane field office, said agents were working with federal prosecutors on a charging decision.

The 23-year-old Ledford made no attempt to conceal his identity, posting the threats from his own Facebook account.

“I-1639 is law,” said one threat posted on Feb. 1. “sheriffs that are non compliant will be shot. by me.”

“Ozzie Knezovich is gonna get a bullet in his skull,” another post said.

That’s right, Ledford threatened to shoot a Sheriff in the head over gun control law enforcement. And then the budding keyboard commando realized that someone was reading what he was posting.

The Facebook account identifies Ledford as a Marxist and generated dozens of politically charged posts each day. But the account went silent on the afternoon of Feb. 5, the day Knezovich announced his office was investigating the threats.

Imagine that.

While he was arrested on a charge of harassment, that could very well change. Making a death threat in Washington State is a Class C felony. That’s up to five years and a $10,000 fine. Federally speaking, threatening via interstate communications (those intertubes go everywhere these days) is another possible five-year sentence.

According to the spokesman.com report, Ledford has no prior criminal record, so he’s probably going to get off without jail time. Still, it’s going to cost him.

    • Cannot be both fascist and a left winger. Those two do not go together. To be a fascist and a Marxist your fascist self would have to wage war against your leftist self, invade your self’s territory, conquer and subjugate yourself.

      Of course, if mentally ill he could have more than one personality, both of them toataly quackers.

      He’s a moron who should have known that posting anti-social shit on social media is a very public, in everybody’s face, the person you threaten will see it sort of thing to do.

      Yup, had he half a brain his head would rattle.

      • These folks proclaim themselves of the left. But their tactics are pure brown shirt. If it quacks like a duck, has feathers like a duck…….

        • And the lefties would say that Fascism is a right wing-capitalist concept. And you would both be wrong. Fascism is a third path, neither left nor right. Militarist, single party, nation-state first/citizen second. Strong concepts of strong over the weak, manifest destiny to expand and conquer for the greater glory of the State. Routinely making use of myth and folklore as propaganda to encourage the population to live their lives for the State’s greater good.

          A Fascist State is the natural blood enemy of western democracy, monarchy, all forms of socialist and communist states. When confronted by both democracies and socialist states, the Fascist state desires to attack in both directions and works towards that goal.

          Fascism does make use of capitalism but subjugates it to the greater needs of the State. So long as a capitalist is beneficial to the State, he may prosper. If he crosses the State or fails to deliver upon obligations to the State, he’s in serious trouble.

          Fascism is a complex concept. Having only some of the elements does not make a State fascist. It’s an all of it, or it is some other sort of creature.

        • No it isn’t; just because right wingers don’t want to associate with it doesn’t change definitions. Fascism is ultra-nationalistic (the opposite of the left) and directly opposed to liberalism and marxism. It’s about as left-wing as the DPRK is democratic.

          Definitions matter. Stop calling everyone you don’t like ‘fascist’ without understanding the word or you’re as bad as the lefties calling everyone ‘nazi’.

        • Fascism most certainly is a left-wing ideology and always has been. Trying to justify it as being on the right flies in the face of facts, political science, and history. Just because some tenants of capitalism and nationalism remain (I love how you are trying to parse nationalism vs the State), does not move everything else into the camp of the right. As far as a political spectrum would go, short of a revolution, you would progress from Fascism > Socialism > Communism, with all three firmly on the left end of the spectrum.

      • Nazis were fascists. Nazi == National Socialism. Hitler and other top nazis gave many speeches proclaiming socialism.

        Near as I can tell, the only difference between fascists and communists is that communists directly control the means of production, while fascists tell the owners what to do. A distinction without a difference.

        • Uhhh… have you actually ever read Mein Kampf.
          Or anything Mussolini wrote?
          I highly doubt any you guys making claims that Nazis are leftist have done anything beyond looking at the name of the Party.
          And if you want to go that route China and North Korea are bastions of freedom and liberty…

        • Hitler claimed to be Socialist. He claimed to be Christian. He claimed to be pro-law and order. He claimed to be anything that would get him votes.
          Then he got the votes, and claimed absolute power.

        • To Jim S. Have you???? I’ve read enough history to choke an elephant and Hitler AND Mussolini used socialism just like the punks are today….to gain absolute control over the people as is done in ALL socialist countries. You do as THEY say or else.

      • The only thing fascism is right of is communism. And the only people who actually believe fascists are right wingers are themselves either ignorant or communist.

        • Correct that Fascists are not right wingers. Nor are they left wingers. They use the economic system of the western democracies and hijack some language of the socialist states. But in neither case do they embrace either as anything more than a tool. One to finance militaristic expansion, the other as a propaganda tool to control a population.

      • “Cannot be both fascist and a left winger. . .” Sigh, I guess poly sci classes and econ classes don’t teach much about fascism any more. Fascism is a form of socialism in which the state controls the means of production while allowing oligarchs to continue owning and operating big business. Essentially the fascist state forms a partnership with big business. Since fascism can be contrasted with socialism where it is commonplace for the state to both control the means of production but also nationalize formally private business enterprises . . . fascism is rightfully termed the “right wing—of the left wing”. Fascism is therefore most definitely socialism, just not the kind other socialists like.

        • No. Read Albert Spiers book. Hitler took a lot of heat from fellow National-Socialists because he made a series of deals with businesses. It almost lost him the support of his own party. Hitler argued that he needed these argreements in order to further solidify his control over the country. Fascism and National-Socialism is socialism…Hitler just deviated from it a little to strengthen his rule over Germany. The National-Socialist and Fascist were no friend of capitalism by any means. The Right versus Left thing was created as part of Communist propaganda to first demonize other socialist ideologies and then to demonize capitalism. Read the writing of people who actually lived during that time, and ignore the regurgitated propaganda spewed in school history books. It will open your eyes.

        • The original platform of the NSDAP included the abolition of interest charging loans, redistribution of private property, etc, leaving no doubt about its socialist ideology. AH walked the party back from it, knowing that even he couldn’t sell it to the German people.

      • The original Fascista, Benito Mussolini, got his start as a publisher of a socialist magazine. He developed his own form of socialism and would not take orders from Moscow – another socialist government, if you didn’t know – which accused every socialist that wouldn’t take Stalin’s orders of being anti-socialist, or fascist. But they’re not. Both the Fascisti party and the National Socialist German Workers party were socialist. They both pass the duck test.

        The book “Liberal Fascism” by Jonah Goldberg will give you more details.

        • Sorry, A.C. Didn’t see your comment before posting mine. Apparently, history is not taught in today’s schools. Thank you for your (more) prompt attention to this matter.

      • Benito Mussolini, founder of the Fascist Party, was kicked out of the Italian Communist Party because he was too nationalist.

        “Fascist” is oh-so-slightly to the right of straight-up Marxism.

      • The first fascist, Benito Mussolini was a big Marxist. He realized that the Marxist dream of the proletariat rising up in revolution was not going to happen after observing behavior of Marxists fighting each other because their loyalty to their country was stronger than their loyalty to their Marxist ideology. So he combined the two, Marxism and Stateism and create Fascism. Stalin actually sent him a letter commending him on this.

        ALL liberal, leftists, commies and such are Fascists. The BIG LIE was started after WWII to pin Fascism on the right to let the Democrats off the hook since their racist policy against the black population was used as the framework for the Nazi activity against the Jews.

        The study of history is a wonderful thing, you just have to get past the lies to the truth.

      • fascist and marxist are not opposites at all it is just a matter of degree of state control. fascist tends to allow some business to operate under strict govt control whereas marxism it is under total govt control. in all other respects both are still totalitarian dictatorships that hate liberty and the responsibility that goes with it. under fascism those business operators tend to face harsh penalties if they dont produce exactly what the govt dictates they produce up to and including death, anotherwords the govt sets them up to take the fall for their bad decisions.

      • Yeah, and this boondoggle is most likely not going to cost him but prolly his parents. Betcha he lives in their basement.

      • Even a republic is to the left of anarchy… and a democracy is to the left of a republic. The degree of control and the lack of freedom is what separates the left from the right; the will of it’s people to accept some level of encroachment on freedom for the advantage of some level of order and stability the only thing that allows any government to exist.

        Fasism is far leftwing, deep into control and loss of individual freedom…

      • You’re as full of it as Ocasio-Cortez…..and ignorant to say the least. Yes, they can and did under Hitler. They do it to gain absolute control over the minions just like they want to here. They think they’re all smarter than we and need it to use that power to run every aspect of our lives. I don’t know where you went to school but you need to go back and slap some teachers. If you are one, slap yourself awake.

    • All this thread has taught me is that you guys have literally no clue what Fascism or Communism or Socialism is. And you’re voting. Which is scary.

    • this is the “new” American left….Make no mistake ,they have ALWAYS been like this,BUT NOW they’re no longer trying to hide it…look at the face of this little prison boy…they’re gonna “LOVE ” him

    • That little twat will not get prison time. Maybe a couple days/weeks in jail and some fines but I highly doubt he’ll go to prison.

  1. He said he likes gun control laws so much because they stop gun violence, and anyone who disagrees with him, he will personally shoot in the head.
    You can’t make this stuff up.

    • Doubt it. Most have no affiliation. What they are is violent nut jobs who should have been caught and locked up well before they ever set out to harm innocent people.

      • “What they are is violent nut jobs who should have been caught and locked up ”

        I think that is just another term for liberal is it not?

        • Miner49

          Good luck getting any facts or statistics from these folks.

          I find it hard to believe 7 out of 10 are registered Democrats. Seeing as how 9 out of 10 weren’t even old enough to vote. And 11 out of 10 were so nuts they no longer believed in society, voting and it being better to kill a bunch of folks before killing themselves.

          I bet they’ll say this guy in the article is a registered Democrat. Which is basically impossible cause Washington State does NOT require us to register our party affiliation to vote.

          Honestly, I want to say what’s the difference between Democrats and Republicans because there truly isn’t any difference. But I don’t want to say that, it’s like getting into an argument over what color the sky is. No matter how many times I say to look up, they’ll keep staring at the ground.

          But hey, why let the facts get in the way. Shannon Watts would be so very proud of these commenters.

  2. Man? Give me an FN break. Snot nosed little shit who needs a boot up his rear end. Take him for a long ride up in the mountains and leave him for the bears. I sure their are a few good ol boys who would be willing to help left in Washington.

    • I’m in WA, can confirm there are still many, many good ol boys out here. We are outnumbered, but still here and stong.

      • I moved out of Oregon 5-years ago. The emigrants from California overwhelmed the indigenous population of Oregon changing it from a politically independent, mostly conservative state to a hardcore leftist, practically socialist authoritarian state. A few counties control the state and dictate rules to the other counties. Washington is pretty much the same situation. A totalitarian “capitol” with a bunch of “districts” of subjagated people like some movie depicting a dystopian future.

    • “Give me an FN break.”

      *Hands Darkman a FAL, a FNP and a dozen targets*

      You’ve got five mags each. Have a good time and I hope you feel better when you’re done.

  3. I learned a long time ago that you really shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but looking at this guy does scare the living shit out of me. At least he would if I could stop laughing.

  4. Holy shit! I bet he’s one of those ANTIFA Super Soldiers we’ve been hearing about. I’m not laughing anymore. Now I’m hiding under my bed.

  5. I’m sure the ACLU will rescue him…But, if it was a “[email protected] supporter” in an ANTI-2nd State run by Demo-Nutzis, and Globalist GOP RINOs…And that support was talking about “Refreshing the Tree of Liberty, Molon Labe, or The historical possibility of other American Civil War…I bet THEY would let the “[email protected] Supporter” be maliciously prosecuted…Based on “White Nationalists/NRA Nuts/Toxic masculinity ! “Thought-Crimes! Like what New York wants to do….

  6. Bring back the Draft. 2 years in some S.H. country might help. He will get little time in jail. Sad, THAT is our future.

  7. another expendable foot soldier in the culture war that the left is waging on america
    they keep running into the meat grinder and the dems keep cranking the handle
    they dont care about people
    they care about power
    that much is clear
    they are truly evil

    • Being a leftist, is probably gender fluid. That fluidity had better get channeled while behind bars.

      Out of respect for the sliding scale of 37 to 68 genders, I have avoided using any gender pronouns.

  8. Grabbers to us: “Obey gun control laws, or we’ll send cops to kill you.”

    Cops refuse to kill you.

    Grabbers to cops: “Enforce gun control laws, or we will kill you.”

    Grabbers just want to kill people.

  9. Won’t do a day in jail .

    Arresting officer will be placed on stand ,his attorney will ask , “ did you see my client type that post ?” He’ll answer no .

    That usually ends those cases , as long as he keeps his mouth closed he should skate .

    • The kid admitted to it when they knocked on his door. His face is on his page the the post is still up and running on Facebook.
      I suspect he’ll get the “help” he needs though and be spared Federal Prison.

    • He is in jail right now. So he is getting that “day” so far. But no, I doubt he’ll served a day in prison as a sentence.

  10. “Washington Man Who Threatened To Shoot Sheriff Over Gun Control Enforcement is Arrested”

    “Washington Soyboy Twerp And Victim Of Communist Brainwashing Who Threatened To Shoot Sheriff Over Gun Control Enforcement While High On Pharmaceuticals Is Arrested”

    Almost certainly a more accurate title. The kid would probably benefit from some forced de-programming and a few years hard labor, aka honest work. Instead he will go to the “county criminal school” and become actually dangerous, instead of pretend dangerous.

  11. Searching in vain for something on the right wing dumpster loving guard officer who wanted to kill media types and dems. Oh, that’s right. Only lefty’s are violent. Besides he wanted to kill dems and reporters so that’s ok.

    • Its garbage. He was picked up for google searches. Broke a few Md gun laws. Hes a pill junkie also. What kind of WN, allegedly for 30 yrs, wants to take out EVERYONE in the world and only has contemporary pols to rage at??? Its bunk to get the REAL racist black guy off the front pages.

      • Really. Google searches, three AR stule rifles (which probably are illegal in Md.) a bunch of hand guns, and, get this, 1000 rounds of ammo. I read the last and thought to myself, “He ain’t gonna be killin’ too many with that ministash.” It is more of a case for white supremacy militancy without any concrete plan of action. I was not impressed, except to think that this guy probably had a loose screw or two.

        • He was dumb enough to do his stupid stuff on a government computer at work so they know all of his ideas. But they have not yet charged him officially so there is a question of what he did. Talk is cheap and can get you in trouble like the Little Boy in this post but he never actually did anything.

          MD has rules on AR rifles he broke so there are state charges maybe and there are the drugs. He’s in trouble but not guilty of any violent acts.

          Jussie went all in with paying by check and running the scam.

      • The problem for the Coast Guard lieutenant is he had a written hit list, detailed with information about the targets. And another issue is the 80% lower receivers he had in his possession, those have been used in several mass shootings.

        As far as we know, the young kid didn’t even possess any weapons, much less seem to have the ability to shoot anybody. It’s clear the lieutenant is a much greater threat to public safety.

        “Lt. Hasson was arrested last Friday on charges of illegal gun possession, but prosecutors have also accused him of plotting to kill “on a scale rarely seen in this country.” The government said he had been stockpiling weapons since at least 2017 and recently developed a spreadsheet of targets that included House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) and other prominent Democratic officials, journalists and pundits.

        Investigators discovered that Mr. Hasson had purchased 80% lower receivers and other parts for making guns, according to court documents.”

        • Hummmmm …………..

          80% lowers are just a hunk of aluminum, NOT a firearm. Not even as deadly as an aluminum baseball bat. But to the news media, sounds dangerous.

        • There are a few folks who might disagree with you, were they not killed by homemade weapons. It is clear that 80% lowers are nothing but a scheme to circumvent ownership restrictions.

          “In 2017, a Northern California man prohibited from possessing firearms by a restraining order killed five people with semiautomatic rifles he made himself. In 2016, a Baltimore man fired at police with a homemade AR-15, and Santa Monica, Calif., shooter John Zawahri used a ghost gun in his shooting spree that killed five in 2013.“

        • So scary, three whole events In the last six years. Those terrible ghost guns pop up on the ole crime radar once every other year. Terrifying, we must have more control! Ban all the things!

  12. That kids an idiot, anyone who knows anything about something knows never shoot a cop in the head, solid bone, just ricochets off.

  13. “authorities knocked on his door shortly before noon”

    So they cheated. The little shit wasn’t even up yet! How can the little shit be expected to make up half an excuse when he isn’t fully awake?

    • Half asleep, probably not playing with a full deck, he’s been up there in Omak likely his entire life, snowed in all winter, living on the computer, he’s only 23 going on 12, it’s not as if law enforcement had a tough time getting him to spill his guts. Poor little dweeb. He’s going to be spending some time on some shrinks couch…or bed. He’s going to learn quite about the criminal justice system very soon.

  14. That’s a 23-year-old guy? He looks more like a 13-year-old girl who apparently doesn’t wear makeup. Or bathe, for that matter. Also, his parents need smacked for naming him “Jaydin”.

  15. “if the cops act immorally or illegally, I’ll shoot them with my gun! So they better go take everyone’s gun!”

    This leftist ALMOST caught the logic bug concerning an armed population, but then went full retard and made death threats against a specific person who chose to respect the constitution and not take people’s property. WTF man.

  16. It’s just that he feels soooo deeply about these issues. Maybe he just gets a little confused in his zealousness? It does make me wonder, though, how rapey he’ll get in support of the #MeToo movement?
