Posted on 03/26/2020 1:06:35 AM PDT by Enlightened1
In a memo to law enforcement agency chiefs and US attorneys, Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen said that “because coronavirus appears to meet the statutory definition of a ‘biological agent’… such acts potentially could implicate the Nation’s terrorism-related statutes.”
Rosen wrote that “we have seen an unfortunate array of criminal activity related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Capitalizing on this crisis to reap illicit profits or otherwise preying on Americans is reprehensible and will not be tolerated.
The memo continues on to say that he is writing to inform them of schemes that have been reported, including plots to purposely infect Americans with the virus. He did not say if any successful attempts to do this have actually been reported.
“Threats or attempts to use COVID-19 as a weapon against Americans will not be tolerated,” Rosen asserted.

The food and toilet lickers are going to be so upset.....
An overstepped threat imo but hopefully it will stop some of the shenanigans
but HIV killers are A-OK
You can still intentionally spread HIV in California!
Wanna stop this crap? Cut out their tongues. Only gotta do this once on national TV.
Not politically correct or acceptable. Get with the program, kkthx. gg. /s
DOJ flexing its muscles on idiots instead of prosecuting the real scumbags in the adjoining offices.
In Texas, you are prosecuted for aggravated assault just for knowingly exposing anyone else to HIV. It's a 2nd second degree felony. I bet they go after some of those coronavirus party crashers under the same law.
it’s a crime in NY too though not as high level as when they didn’t have the cocktail for it.
Naa, That might kill them. Just saw their front teeth off with a hack saw. Betcha that would be painful.
Watch out that the slippery slope of this DOJ definition does not slide down to permitting arrests for merely being out and about and not on “essential personal business”, infected or not.
That is because in California HIV is also called The Gift.
Good grief. This over reaction has gone too far.
The real terrorists run the DOJ.
What about intent?
Too bad, so sad.
Let them pay for their stupidity.
Stupid people have been insulated from the consequence so their stupidity for far too long in this country.
It’s time to get back to normal and let them reap what they sow.
Include the CCP of China.
How about the flu or common cold viruses? Do we just shoot those people?
Next up, witches! We need to stop them! Bring back the dunking ponds!
