Connecticut Man’s Firearms Seized Because His Son Shared a Meme on Facebook

[excerpted] Even though Wagshol has denied having any intent to commit a mass shooting, several news outlets have reported that Wagshol made a Facebook post about wanting to commit a mass shooting, including CNNand The Washington Post.

So, what was this scary Facebook post that led to Wagshol’s arrest?

Good question. There doesn’t seem to be one.

The “concerned citizen” reported a Facebook post regarding buying 30-round magazines. However, no post has surfaced stating Wagshol wanted them for a mass shooting.

The police claim, however, that Wagshol was indeed planning a mass murder. From the Hartford Courrant:

Norwalk police Lt. Terry Blake said Wagshol had posted on Facebook that he “was into planning a mass murder.” (source)

From the CTPost

Police claimed Wagshol made social media posts showing an interest in mass shootings, but did not specify any particular posts. (source)

According to Wagshol’s lawyer, Stamford attorney Darnell Crosland, the police failed to cite any actual Facebook posts in the official report.

Crosland also said the report did not include any of Wagshol’s Facebook posts in question.

“What I understand is that he didn’t make any comments on Facebook, but there might have been other memes, as they call it, that he might have re-posted, but he didn’t make a statement on Facebook as related to any mass shooting.” (source)
