A Janesville, Wisconsin man is accused of mailing a rambling manifesto to Donald Trump before vanishing and stealing high-end weaponry from a gun store. You can watch the video above. The first few minutes of it have audio only, and the most interesting comments come at the end.
Authorities with the Rock County Sheriff’s Department released the 15-minute video of Jakubowski, a convicted felon who previously worked as a roofer, allegedly mailing the 161-manifesto to Trump.

Jakubowski has sparked a massive manhunt that has led to the closing of schools and a church as sheriff’s officials believe he threatened to carry out school shootings and harm public officials before vanishing. “It was further reported that he had made threats to steal weapons and to use them against public officials or at an unspecified school,” the Rock County Sheriff’s Department wrote in a statement. Increasing concern: Authorities accuse Jakubowski of likely being the person who burglarized a local gun store, arming himself with assault rifles and other guns, before disappearing.
The first few minutes of the 15-minute post office video are black, but you can hear talking. Then, a man police say is Jakubowski appears in the post office. He holds up an envelope with Trump’s name on it for the camera. Another man can be heard interacting with Jakubowski during the video. It’s not clear who he is. Some of the video simply shows buying postage. The most interesting moments come at the end of it.
“Revolution,” the man police say is Jakubowski says toward the end of the video as he walks through the parking lot. “It’s time for change.”
The other person recording the video says, “It’s D Day. Today is the day. So remember this face.”
The man identified as Jakubowski by police then says, “Game time. F- the system.”
Authorities accuse Jakubowski of burglarizing the Armageddon Gun Shop on April 4, 2017 right before he disappeared. You can watch a law enforcement news conference here:
“A large quantity of high-end handguns and rifles were stolen and the suspect fled the scene,” the Sheriff’s Department in Rock County, Wisconsin said in a statement.
Before identifying the burglar as allegedly being Jakubowski, the Sheriff’s Department released photos from the heist.
The Rock County, Wisconsin Sheriff wrote on Facebook that Jakubowski should be considered, “armed and dangerous.” According to The Janesville Gazette, authorities say they also “have learned Jakubowski bought a bullet-resistant vest and helmet.”
“We continue to actively seek any tips or information related to Jakubowski. Direct sightings should be immediately reported to “911” and general tips or historical information should be directed to 1-800-CALLFBI (225-5324),” the sheriff said.
The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading up to his arrest.
It’s Jakubowski’s manifesto that is increasing alarm. On April 6, two days after the gun store burglary, police received information that Jakubowski “has been highly agitated recently regarding a variety of political issues,” the Rock County Sheriff’s Department said. “It was further reported that he had made threats to steal weapons and to use them against public officials or at an unspecified school.”
The Sheriff’s Department says that Jakubowski wrote a 161-page manifesto and mailed it to President Trump on April 4, 2017. It “includes grievances against government and personal angst towards anyone or anything other than natural law or rule,” said the Sheriff’s Department in the statements.
ABC News reports that, according to the sheriff, Jakubowski’s anger in the manifesto is directly largely at authority and government in general.
The Rock County Sheriff’s office said Jakubowski’s car was found torched on April 4 at 9:07 p.m. on Pennycook Lane a short distance away from the location of the Armageddon Gun Shop burglary, according to the Rock County Sheriff’s Department. It’s not clear why the car was set on fire.
