ID’ED: Patrick Dai, Arrested for Alleged Vile Death Threats Against Jews at Cornell University
Patrick Dai, age 21, a junior at Cornell University who is originally from Pittsfordi, New York, was arrested today on a federal criminal complaint charging him with posting threats to kill or injure another using interstate communications.
The complaint alleges that Dai posted threatening messages to the Cornell section of an online discussion site, including posts calling for the deaths of Jewish people and a post that said “gonna shoot up 104 west.” According to information provided by Cornell University Police and other public information, 104 West is a Cornell University dining hall that caters predominantly to Kosher diets and is located next to the Cornell Jewish Center, which provides residences for Cornell students. In another post, Dai allegedly threatened to “stab” and “slit the throat” of any Jewish males he sees on campus, to rape and throw off a cliff any Jewish females, and to behead any Jewish babies. In that same post, Dai threatened to “bring an assault rifle to campus and shoot all you pig jews.”
