Police arrest internet troll for threatening to kill sheriff in ‘Minecraft’ 08:54

New Jersey police have arrested Richard Golden, 38, for threatening to kill Florida Sheriff Mike Chitwood in a 4-channel forum. In this respect informs kotaku

“Just hit him on the head and kill him,” says Golden’s post about Sheriff Chitwood. It has been noted that Golden tried to convey his threat as a joke, adding a tagline appearance to it in “Minecraft”. This is a common way to show that what is being said on the English-speaking Internet is not serious. For example, you can say “I will kill you in Minecraft” to emphasize that this is not a real threat.

However, the police did not play this trick and detained Altın at his mother’s house. His anger at Chitwood may have been due to the sheriff’s appearance in defense of the Jewish community after attacks by far-right activists.

Golden will move to Florida for the trial. He is charged with a written death threat.

Formerly socialbites.ca saidMinecraft was among the top 20 video games in history.
