Florida man remains in jail for anti-LGBTI threats

Craig Jungwirth is accused of writing a Facebook post promising a massacre similar to the Pulse nightclub. A Florida man, accused of threatening a crime like the Pulse nightclub shooting, will have to spend one more weekend in jail. This past Thursday (8 September), Craig Jungwirth faced a federal judge after being charged with making an online threat. At the end of August, Jungwirth came to the attention of the Wilton Manors Police Department for the following Facebook post: ‘If you losers thought the Pulse nightclub shooting was bad, wait till you see what I’m planning for Labor Day,’ the 50-year-old allegedly wrote. Wilton Manors is located in Broward County, approximately 35 miles from Miami. According to WESH 2 News, Jungwirth’s attorney told the federal judge he would ask for his client’s release this Monday on a pretrial bond.  Prosecutors requested they be given time so an an FBI agent could appear in court to testify. The suspect was supposed to appear in court this past Tuesday, but that was canceled when he complained of chest pains. He was transported to hospital, discharged, and returned to Seminole County Jail. Jungwirth is being held as a federal prisoner.
