Police Chief’s Creepy Threat to Citizen Who Complained on Department’s Facebook Page: ‘We Will Work on Finding You’

Interim Police Chief Ruben Santiago, with the Columbia Police Department in South Carolina, is under some scrutiny after making an apparent arrest threat to a Facebook user who was critical of a marijuana bust.

On Thursday, CPD first published a post about its “40K of marijuana” seized from an apartment in Columbia, prompting resident Brandon Whitmer to criticize the arrest of “a stoner that’s not bothering anyone.”

“Maybe u should arrest the people shooting people in 5 points instead of worrying about a stoner that’s not bothering anyone,” he wrote. “It’ll be legal here one day anyway.”

It certainly was a critical and snarky comment by Whitmer, but was it enough “reasonable suspicion” for police to believe he “might be a criminal?” That’s what Santiago claimed in a reply:

[email protected] whitmer, we have arrested all of the violent offenders in Five Points. Thank you for sharing your views and giving us reasonable suspicion to believe you might be a criminal, we will work on finding you.”
