Janya Williams 18-year-old security guard made a fake terrorist threat while working at Lollapalooza to go home early ... she is now charged with making a false terrorism threat a Class 1 felony (720 ILCS 5.0/29D-25)

in a second charge in as many days related to terrorism it now seems more certain that Chicago area Law Enforcement Agencies (LEO) and federal authorities are starting to coordinate charging criminals with terrorism related charges on the state and federal level in the ongoing crime wave in Chicago and across the nation.

... maybe the feds are going use her to try and figure out who is organizing these kids to do criminal activity in the city since the social unrest in 2020 ... they can go through all of her phone, email and social media accounts now ... plus offer her time served in exchange for names and organizations that showed these kids how to become criminals and destroy property and hurt others in the last few years ... that other 18 year old get popped by the feds in Posen the other day for carjacking ....

... it would not be the first time the feds took down a criminal gang or conspiracy to commit crime in Chicago ....

Janya Williams, 18, is facing the charge of calling in a fake terrorism threat, which is a felony, after being taken into custody Friday afternoon in the 700 block of South Columbus Drive.

Shortly before 3 p.m. Friday when Janya B. Williams sent a message via her TextNow number to a witness’ cellphone which read:

“Mass shooting at 4pm location Lollapalooza. We have150 targets,” according to prosecutors during Williams’ bond hearing Sunday.

Detectives believe Williams made the threat herself under a fake profile named “Ben Scott.” In it, the post read “Massive shooting at Lollapalooza Grant Park 6:00 p.m.,” according to the court document.

According to a court document, Williams was accused of sending her Andy Frain Services supervisor, which was the company providing security, a screenshot of a Facebook threat.

The witness immediately told her supervisors, setting off a chain of alerts to Chicago police and FBI Joint Counterterrorism Task Force.

When the witness, who was a staffer supervising a security team, went back to her post about 4:15 p.m., Williams told the witness her sister told her she saw a post about a mass shooting threat on Facebook, prosecutors said.

After the witness told Williams to send a screen shot of the Facebook threat, Williams allegedly created a bogus Facebook page under the name “Ben Scott,” wrote a post that said, “Massive shooting at Lollapalooza Grant Park 6 p.m.,” and snapped a screen shot of it, sending it to the witness’ cell, prosecutors said.

That was when the witness sent that screen shot to her supervisor, but investigators soon learned the Apple iCloud account and IP address of the TextNow number, both of which belonged to Williams, prosecutors said.

When Williams was found and brought to the police command center for questioning, she told police she sent the message and created the fake post “because she wanted to leave work early,” prosecutors said.

Williams, of the city’s Lawndale neighborhood, was charged with making a false terrorism threat, which is a felony and on Sunday, Cook County Judge Mary Marubio ordered her held in lieu of $50,000 bail. Williams, who remained in custody as of Wednesday afternoon, is due back in court on Monday.

Sounds Gang Related

anytime there are killings at funerals it is usually gang or organized crime related ... if you look at the crime and victims of crimes social media pages you can tell pretty fast if they are associated with gang activity.

Some of the most dangerous individuals in Chicago right now to the working class and working poor are the current Chicago Teachers Union leaders who seek to abolish the police and any and all gang databases or records.

Using their platform they encourage organized violence and lawlessness in the name of a revolution.

When you look closer at their records of political activity, internal & external plots of retaliation and associations it is clear they are left-wing reactionaries and fascists.

Chicago

BY CARL SANDBURG

Hog Butcher for the World,

Tool Maker, Stacker of Wheat,

Player with Railroads and the Nation's Freight Handler;

Stormy, husky, brawling,

City of the Big Shoulders:

They tell me you are wicked and I believe them, for I have seen your painted women under the gas lamps luring the farm boys.

And they tell me you are crooked and I answer: Yes, it is true I have seen the gunman kill and go free to kill again.

And they tell me you are brutal and my reply is: On the faces of women and children I have seen the marks of wanton hunger.

And having answered so I turn once more to those who sneer at this my city, and I give them back the sneer and say to them:

Come and show me another city with lifted head singing so proud to be alive and coarse and strong and cunning.

Flinging magnetic curses amid the toil of piling job on job, here is a tall bold slugger set vivid against the little soft cities;

Fierce as a dog with tongue lapping for action, cunning as a savage pitted against the wilderness,

Bareheaded,

Shoveling,

Wrecking,

Planning,

Building, breaking, rebuilding,

Under the smoke, dust all over his mouth, laughing with white teeth,

Under the terrible burden of destiny laughing as a young man laughs,

Laughing even as an ignorant fighter laughs who has never lost a battle,

Bragging and laughing that under his wrist is the pulse, and under his ribs the heart of the people,

Laughing!

Laughing the stormy, husky, brawling laughter of Youth, half-naked, sweating, proud to be Hog Butcher, Tool Maker, Stacker of Wheat, Player with Railroads and Freight Handler to the Nation.
