Jakubowski who also sent a 161-page anti-government and anti-religious manifesto to the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump was charged with three felonies by the police: theft, burglary to arm himself with a dangerous weapon, and possession of burglarious tools.
In a portion of the manifesto obtained by WTMJ-TV, Jakubowski described the American government as a “gang of terrorists.” He also made a threat to steal weapons and use them against government officials and schools. This made the police to provide extra security to House Speaker Paul Ryan and his family who hail from the city. Some schools and a church within the locality took protective measures by closing their doors.
Jakubowski’s step father, Donald McLean said he and his step son have not been on speaking terms for about two years. He did however confirm that Jakubowski has been flouting rules and has no respect for authorities. "Since the age of 17, he just generally started hating society, hating police, hating the government, hating rules, regulations, controls, limits,” said Donald McLean
In the manifesto, Jakubowski said he stole guns because the system has stolen my natural right to protect and defend life.
