A Dallas man has been arrested in Washington D.C. after allegedly traveling to the capital to “kill all white police.” Michael Arega was arrested at around 4 p.m. on November 6 at Lafayette Park, directly in front of the White House. The suspect was taken into custody by the Secret Service after a “be on the lookout” notice had been sent out by the Montgomery County police department in Maryland at around 3 p.m., reports ABC Washington D.C.

Here’s what you need to know:


1. Arega Wrote on Facebook Hours Before His Arrest, ‘Kill Trump in Jesus Name!!’

Arega has been regularly updating his Facebook page in the 24 hours prior to his arrest. He reposted a conservative news post showing Donald Trump’s reaction to the Sutherland Springs shooting. Above the status update, Arega wrote, “Kill him in Jesus name!!” However, just a week earlier, Arega posted a video from Trump’s propaganda-style White House news service. In the caption, Arega wrote, “True and real news. May God bless our President Donald Trump.”

After sending his threat to “kill all white police,” Arega also wrote, “Our world should be free from this guy and we will be free in Jesus name.” Another message wrote, “I dismantle the power of darkness in the powerful name of Jesus Christ from USA land.” While Arega also said, “I remove the power of darkness from USA in the powerful name of Jesus Christ.”


2. Arega Was Unarmed at the Time of His Arrest

WUSA reports that Arega was arrested without incident. The suspect was unarmed at the time of his arrest. In a statement, the Secret Service said, “Secret Service personnel at the White House immediately increased their posture of readiness and began searching for Arega.” The agency later said that Arega was charged with making felony threats.

The day before his arrest, Arega checked in on Facebook at the Days Inn in Silver Spring, Maryland.


3. Arega Operates a Construction Business in Texas

Online records show that Arega operated a construction company in the Dallas area named Rehoboth Concrete Construction. While on his Facebook page, Arega says that he works as a quality control inspector at Alpha Testing, another construction company. In his description of the job, Arega writes, “I am a king.”

Arega’s page is dominated by his various Christian preaching. In his life events section, Arega says that he last traveled to Washington D.C. in 2013. That same year, Arega says he traveled to New York City, Philadelphia and Dubai. Arega’s Facebook profile photo is an image that shows the name, “The All Nation Kingdom of God Church.”


4. The Secret Service Said in June 2017 that Trump Faced a Similar Number of Threats to President Obama

Speaking to reporters in June 2017, Secret Service Director Randolph “Tex” Alles told USA Today that there hadn’t been a significant rise in the number of threats made against the president. That came despite some high-profile threats against the controversial Republican president. Director Alles said that there are on average six to eight threat reports every day. Although Alles did say that Trump’s large family and willingness to travel to his various homes had created stress on the agency. The director said, “There are more places we have to protect by statute. That and the fact that he has a large family. That’s just more stress on the organization. We recognize that. It’s not something I have any flexibility.”

NBC Washington reports that there is little deterrent for those threatening and disrupt elements of the governments. The station report says, “Almost all of those arrested since 2014 are free from custody… at least two of them are missing and being sought by law enforcement.”


5. Arega’s Dallas Connection Will Remind People of the July 2016 Dallas Police Shooting

Arega’s connection to the Dallas-area will not doubt spark memories of the July 2016 police shooting in the city. On July 7, 2016, Micah Xavier Johnson ambushed cops in the city, killing five officers and injuring nine others. The attack came while activists were protesting the police shootings of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minnesota. Arega, an Afghan-war veteran, had been angry over police shootings of black men in America. That shooting was the largest loss of life incident for American law-enforcement officers since 9/11.

I believe he is all talk and no substance. What irritates me most is his using Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ’s name. Arega’s not much of a Christian since Jesus teaches us to be peaceful and use no violence. He is just a loudmouth looking for attention but he best keep his mouth shut or he might get shot by a Secret Service agent.

Nitwit, what do you mean by fake news? Just because the would-be murderer is black does not mean he’s a great man. White and Blue lives matter.

Ehhh, trump has taught followers who cant think for themselves that if they ever read, hear, AND, believe it or not, actually see Anything they don’t Want to hear, like, read or see, just call it “fake news”, and that doing just that will somehow make a fact just an alternative “opinion” type of something or another. (not sure what as a fact is a fact, don’t matter how you ‘spin’ it but, whatever…) So, follow on, but remember, we don’t want to be russians or controlled by someone from russia or dictated to by someone that owes russia craploads of money. Look, ANYONE can get immigration under control, whether it be by using a wall, deporting border crossers that dont come here the right way, or a combination of things and it doesn’t have to be accomplished by someone that thinks that grabbing someones &ussy& is “great, they let you do it”. *just to mention 1 thing of about a thousand others*
This terrorist dude wanted to shoot the man for the same reasons that anyone else that cant stand the type of person someone like trump is. The difference- We just don’t offer to go shoot anyone because we dont like something about them, or anyone else for that matter. America can get just about Anyone to accomplish the things trump has done, ie; costing all of us taxpayers(not him) the entire SS budget before the year is even CLOSE to being over, just for golfing all the time with hundreds of SS men and women. It’s MILLIONS! Almost a billion already! And all in the in just the 1st few months of being on the “job”! Wth?? Way, way, way, way way more than the last president did in 8 years! *btw, that’s just 2 of about a thousand other things* I’m 49, white, cant stand anybody, white or black or blue or purple that disrespects my daughter, mother, family. Come try to grab one of their &usssys&, then say they it’s great, they let you do it.
The dude wanted to shoot the president! He’s a psychopath! Keep the disturbed thing locked up for the good of our UNITED STATES.

Hey Paul Farrell – WTF is wrong with you for this piece of crap …”However, just a week earlier, Arega posted a video from Trump’s propaganda-style White House news service. ” Paul Farrell from Brooklyn (and ireland) – Is Heavy now turning into left wing propaganda?

As everyone knows, whether they admit it or not, the vast, vast majority of police law enforcement encounters with blacks are entirely justified and the vast majority of police shootings of blacks (and of other criminals in other races) are also entirely justified. Of course there are bad actors among the police. We have all seen that too, but no where near what the liberal socialist community organizers and professional agitators have led blacks and others to believe. This latest mental case is the result of that agitating and lying by the leftist liberal media.

I have only found 3 to 4 shootings of blacks by police that were illegal. Blacks should pray against their own violence against each other.

Lol, white boys on a rampage in Vegas and Texas and you are commenting how blacks should pray against their own violence.

Ha, ha, ha!… you’ve got to wonder about some of these “comment loggers” at Heavy! And not only that Henry, some of these KNOBS are still trying to find some “LEFTIST AGENDA” behind these “PASTY-BOY KILLINGS”! One’s APOLIT(IC) and anti-Christian, and the other is A-FAMILIAL and anti-Christian! Oops! But I guess Henry, there’s at least one undisputed PASTY-BOY THEME!

The liberals finally found one; a ‘Christian’ who wants to murder in the name of Jesus Christ. Sad day, though, it comes from an Ethiopian black dude who hates Trump. Maybe the DNC will run him on Joe Biden’s ticket. Biden-Arega 2020!

The PHEWTUSIANS finally found one: a PHEWTUS who wants to blow up North Koreans in the name of Jesus! And a PASTY PHEWTUS, who hates LOGIC and SEEMLY BEHAVIOR! Maybe the GOP will run him on a “Putin/ Russian ticket! PUTIN/ PHEWTUS 2020! Either that, or Melania can run him on a TREADMILL to remove some of the fat from between his ears!

Well, JUNIOR, if you would learn how to cr*p straight on your mom’s toilet, and learned how to clean your own cr*p-filled underwear instead of leaving it up to mom!… then you wouldn’t need someone to “shoot your sh*t”!
