By his own father’s account, 23-year-old Florida resident Rusty Braxton is like other “typical” kids who “talk before they put their brains in gear.” But Braxton’s brainless Twitter chatter about Occupy Wall Street protesters needing to “kill a cop or 2” made him the target of a police investigation.
Braxton insisted that his tweet was misunderstood. “Never would I advocate cop killing regardless how brutal they were being,” he told The Daily Caller. “I was saying for us to have the kind [of revolution] they have overseas we’d have to do that. It was just a rebelrouser [sic] trying to cause a stink and clearly worked.”
Braxton deleted the tweet in question and later closed his Twitter account. He also made his Facebook account private after journalists discovered photos of him there brandishing weapons.
