BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Make no mistake: police read social media and take action when deemed necessary. That’s the lesson Boca Raton resident Jill Hoffman is learning after she allegedly posted hundreds of anti-police posts — many threatening violence and death through a mass shooting — following the killing of a PBSO canine in late December.
Hoffman lives in the 2300 block of North Mirabella Circle.
According to the police report, which you can read by clicking below: “On December 24th, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office announced, via social media, the passing of a Police canine, who was killed in the line of duty while attempting to apprehend a wanted fugitive. The following the posting, the Sheriff’s Office began to receive several comments, on Facebook, from an individual utilitizing the Facebook page name “Michael R. Reed.” The comments were aggressive in nature and blamed the death of the Police canine on Sheriff’s Office members.
Among the posts:
“Your post “thank you for your support during this extremely difficult time” makes me want to spit in all your faces and rip those badges off your chests.”
After the sheriff’s office announce the memorial service location, “Great venue for a mass shooting. You don’t have the sense you were born with.”
Through research, the owner of the Facebook moniker “Michael R. Reed” was determined to be Jill Hoffman.
Hoffman is now charged with “written threats to kill or conduct mass shooting.”
She is being held without bond in the Palm Beach County Jail.
