OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — A Mississippi man is accused of using Facebook to declare “war” on law officers, and posting the home address of a Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics agent and making references to the law officer's family members.
Christopher Casey Cook had an ongoing feud with police and prosecutors and posted that Facebook is “the great equalizer,” according to a federal complaint filed this month in U.S. District Court.
“Dixie Mafia likes to talk about making the wrong people mad. Well congrtulations. You did," Cook wrote on social media, according to the indictment.
“I'm going to give you what you have been giving my brothers and sisters... You are finished,” the indictment says he added.
He's also accused of posting personal details about the drug agent and posting a poem that included references to the agent's family members.
An attorney for Cook did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The agent was involved in Cook's arrest on charges of selling crystal methamphetamine in Calhoun County in 2018. He was later aquitted of the charge following a trial in 2019.
Cook has been in custody in recent days in the current threats case. A preliminary hearing and detention hearing is set for Tuesday.
