COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio man has been indicted on charges that he threatened to blow up the U.S. Supreme Court and attack black men, including a justice on the court, according to an indictment filed Wednesday.
David Tuason, 46, targeted black men known to affiliate with white women, well-known white women who had relationships with black men, and children of mixed-race parents, federal authorities said.
Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg confirmed that a threat was made against Clarence Thomas but refused further comment. Thomas is the only black justice on the court.
FBI spokesman Scott Wilson declined to name those targeted, citing privacy issues. He would not specify whether Tuason attempted to carry out attacks. The threats began in Cleveland and branched out across the nation, Wilson said.
Wilson said Tuason sent the communications as far back as 20 years and that the threats were sent to places where the targets worked or may have attended functions.
"It's been a very long, enduring case," Wilson said. "Basically it's a case we never gave up on."
An message seeking comment was left after-hours Wednesday at the Cleveland office of Federal Public Defender Dennis Terez, who authorities say is representing Tuason.
According to the indictment, Tuason sent a letter to the Supreme Court building in July 2003 in which he threatened to blow it up. The letter was addressed to an associate justice of the court referred to as "CT."
Tuason claimed "CT" would be "castrated, shot or set on fire...I want him killed."
The letter contained several racially charged remarks.
The indictment says letters were also sent to several Ohio sites, including the Kent State University women's basketball team, several Ohio high schools and the Severance Hall home of the Cleveland Orchestra.
The earliest letter was sent to a high school track team in Mentor in May 2003, according to the document. The most recent threat, to a high school football team in Strongsville, was mailed March 3, according to the indictment.
Investigators said Tuason also sent threatening e-mails to office personnel at Jordache Enterprises.
The threats he's accused of are mostly alike, promising physical violence against black men associated with white women.
Tuason, of Pepper Pike, Ohio, was indicted on two counts of transmitting threatening interstate communications and six counts of mailing threatening communications.
The indictment was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio in Cleveland.
Tuason is in the custody of U.S. Marshals. Each interstate communication charge carries a penalty of up to 10 year in prison and each mail charge carries a penalty of up to five years.
"As far as we know, it's a one-man operation," Wilson said.
Too bad he didn't get Clarence Thomas before he got caught.
WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO????
AWWW ***, HALF OF HOLLYWOOD WILL BE WIPED OUT!
LAWD JESUS!! Who would be left in tinsletown???
Dang Im glad they caught him before he went through with his plan. People now a days, you don't know what people are capable of doing.
Man, that's crazy. He needs to get a grip.
I bet most on his list were athletes. Taye Diggs was definitely on the list.
there is a place for you baby
And they better believe this nut too. There are too many of them walking on this planet. Just like nuts stalk celebrities and fall in love with people they've never even met. No wonder Rosie O'Donnell's security team packs heavy.
Some people need to get a life.
Please go after Taye Diggs first please!
lawd lawd lawd
Complete utter IGNORANCE! I'm mixed and as a child I remember the looks my family got! This guy should get the death penalty! No - life so he can get raped for the rest of his years! All that over someones skin color!!
how ***. sounds like he dosent have enough love in his own life. sad.
AMANI TOOMER (NY GIANTS)
AND HALF OF THE NBA!
DID I LEAVE ANYONE OUT?
WHAT A REAL COWARD.......I MEAN HATER (BY HATER...BY)
I wonder if that sellout TIGER WOODS was on that list. He should've been the main one on it instead of Clarence Thomas. I'll betcha that wouldn't be a "NONE ISSUE". I heard that Tiger has a couple of dating website albums. I don't know how true that is. One is called Millionairecupid.com & the other one is called Mixedfriends.com. Maybe someone that is reading this headline has proof or can confirm or deny the rumor.
he would definitely have
his work cut out for him
RUN, REGGIE, RUNNNNN!!!
Lol, this is crazy. Someone give dude a hug. But didn't he say he was going after ALL Black men in interracial relationships, not just celebrities? That's a lot of hate right there...
To be honest, he sounds like some of the ladies here on MTO (and outside too). ...Only he's more serious about his words. :/
Oh well, that's what they get, I couldn't care less. If they stuck to their own black queens then this wouldn't happen, no sympathy at all, I can't stand sellouts.
The White man really has put the White woman high on a huge pedestal. In their minds, She's way too good for anybody but them.
Just because you date someone from another race doesn't make you a sellout. There are so many gorgeous Asian, Indian, Latin, and Polynesian men in addtion to hot Black men, why should I limit myself? Black men sure as hell don't.
I WONDER WHAT WOULD HE DO ABOUT THE NBA? AND NFL?
WAIT YA'LL.....LET'S HAVE A MOMENT OF SILENCE AN PRAY 4 DA MAN....DAT'S ALL I CAN SAY...HE NEED CHURCH 4REAL.

That s/*** Balckness is the real sellout. Who said that black folks who happen to date outside their race actually turned ther backs on their own race?Dont get me wrong, some of em do, but you Blackness has turned your back on them just because of who they date. You sound like the sellout to me and a hater.
LOL @ OldOtisSupreme...you always saying some crazy s h i t...
You left out Camron. He's into the heavy set white chics.
That means the following people need to run and hide:
CUBA GOODING JR
KEENAN IVORY WAYANS
(ANY OTHER CELEBREB THAT JUST "CREEP" WITH EM')
HALF OF THE NBA!
30% OF THE NFL!
5% OF PGA!
(CALCULATIONS ARE STILL BEING MADE, NUMBERS ARE INCREASING DAILY!)
WHY DO PEOPLE ADVERTISE THAERE BUSINESS HERE? NOONE WANTS TO READ THAT SH*T!! AND WHO THE FU*K CARES ABOUT WHO'S FIRST, SECOND, OR THIRD!!! STOP WITH CHILDISH BS!
So I guess the black women with white men are safe lol.
That man is just stupid, get a life crackhead.
Lots of good comments here....Much respect to ***, Desafinado, curtaincall.
It just shows how deep ignorance and hatred run that someone would take a life just because of a person's choice.
Its just stupid....Dating outside ones race doesnt make a sellout. Not taking the time to be involved in bettering your community, or tearing down your community, does. People who blow this issue up are just superficial.
He ain't doin a *** thing.....
HERE'S WHERE US AS BRTHERS NEED TO STAND UP COME TOGETHER, STOP BEEFING WITH EACH OTHER OVER DUMB *** AND ELIMINATE PIECES OF *** LIKE HIM AND THE REST OF THESE DUMB *** PEOPLE WITH THOSE TYPE OH THOUGHTS.
HERE'S WHERE US AS BROTHERS NEED TO STAND UP COME TOGETHER, STOP BEEFING WITH EACH OTHER OVER DUMB *** AND ELIMINATE PIECES OF *** LIKE HIM AND THE REST OF THESE DUMB *** PEOPLE WITH THOSE TYPE OF THOUGHTS.
$hit that means that everybody needs to beef up on security, especially, cuba, wesley, tae, diggs, john legend....the list goes one
he's doin a favor to the white woman married to the black men...sh!t they must have put him up to it! if he kills them, who gets that paper??
This is so sad to be happening in the 21st century...are you really that insecure that you would blame a whole race of men for staeling your women? How about your just a crazy, lonely loser who cant get a date...how bout that.
Every once in awhile my family gets the looks, from both races! one *** at dinner , it was happening and this old lady came to our table and says....You have a family!! I was so happy that she did!! :-)
lol .. one of the reasons why i love being black ... so much attention for nothing. sounds like dude got a problem with life ... keep that up, he wont for long ..
interracialism needs to end anyway. tennessee got it bad when it comes to race-mixing. that *** needs to stop
Now that's what I'm talking about. Blackness123, I agree with you wholeheartedly 100%. You go bot / girl.
I made a mistake. I meant boy, not bot. Sorry ya'll.
White men act like they own white women. They have to be some miserable souls trying to control people they they've never met, and don't care what they want!
They call us the "angry black man" and they're the ones that hate us for no good reason. That displays anger to me! I'LL even go as far as to say insanity. It's logically impossible to hate and want to kill someone over the color of their skin, and be considered normal. GET OVER IT WHITE BOYS, IT'S OVER!!
eastcoastchica: seriously is that your chest?? i'm not ***, but whoa!!
Black_Panther2k8, sweetie810, and blackness123: ya'll sum ignint a$$e$!
and don't get it twisted i know how to spell ignorant.. i was making a point!
hmm...and when they do put him in jail, they need to put his *** in Cell Block "B" for BLACK..bet he would like that...ha!
IGNORANT! NOTHING WRONG WITH INTERRACIAL RELATIONSHIPS!
I am not ignorant MZLDY. I don't have anything against black men dating / marrying white women. I am just getting tired of seeing it. Everywhere you turn there's a black man & a white woman together. All I'm saying is just give us a chance that's all. No, there's nothing wrong w / interracial dating or marrying. Nothing at all. I'm just sooooo sick of it. I know who I am MZLDY, and I am not ignorant by any means.
NOBODY EVER TOLD HIM THAT THE FIRST MAN ON EARTH WAS COMING FROM CENTRAL AFRICA, THEN MOVED HIS WAY TO EUROPE, ASIA, ETC,...
HALF OF THE WORLD ITS *** MIXED. THAT MAN HAS ISSUE, HE'S KIND OF A HITLER OF THE 21ST CENTURY. hITLER HAD A THING AGAINST JEWS AND HIS OWN MOTHER HAD JEWS HERITAGE. MAYBE HE JST DISCOVERD THAT HIS ROOTS ARE *** MIX TOO
"Well tell him to come get some, then!" "Step to me then!" "I'm ready for war!!!!"
I'm just joking.
As a Beige (biracial) man, I feel a little safer that he's been caught. :)
I don't think all interracial dating is bad. I've actually gone on a date with a white guy myself. However, I have a problem with black men (and women) making generalizations about a particular race.
I hate when black men just write off all black women as if we're bad. I am college educated, financially independent and conservative. If a black man or woman happens to fall in love with someone outside of their race, that's all good.....just don't be superficial and turn your back on your own race. That's a true sellout for ya!
hate to say it but i dont blame these celebs or average joes for dating white women black women are f_ _ _ _ _ _ nuts,im black and my lady is black and god knows i have tried and it doesnt matter if there college grads or not cause my lady has a masters,doesnt matter if there independent,cause they love to say that a lot, black women are damaged goods,and a lot of stereotypes about black women are true,and its not about black men not being able to handle a strong black women,cause all black women are not strong,i just think white women are a little bit calmer and not so flip mouthed and disrespectful like black women,and i also believe that a lot of these celebs were spit on by black women growing up thats why they date white chicks i know cause i had a friend that got *** on by black chicks and he was good dude but this is just my thoughts.
well i knew many folks felt that way but.............he took it to the extreme.
people can dat whatever race they wanna date as long as they aint dating children.
I agree with u to a certain extent. NOT all black women act that way.
***...thats a lot of killing...he could live 10 lifetimes and never finish that job....'nuff said dre of Caramelhoneys.com
*** WHY IS MY COMMENT NOT SHOWING UP???
@DSGB...YOU HAVE ISSUES!!!
@boundth......................u r so right.
i feel the same way
Word @ esotericdredz (most definitely), dsgb (to a limited extent), and sexe757 for pointing out the main extent...
This wannabe MAn is from the Cleveland, Ohio area. Pepper Pike to be exact, not too too far from the Levert's in Newberry Twp. ---and you've gotta have a lil, just a lil paper to live here.
AND HE AINT WHITE... He's like a Filipino/ asian mix looking Superfly Jimmy Snucka type dude! (yes, I said it!!!) with a haircut. I'll never know what his problem was. Dayum, he aint white nor Black so ---what the...?
He gonna be wishing that he was black and muslim when the [EXPLETIVE] start runnin that choo choo on him in the Federal Pen.
I have no problem with black men and women who mwant to date outside their race. What makes no sense to me is how "Uncle Tom" *** black men who after dating white women for a while bad mouth black women. HELLO!! Reality should hit you when you look in the mirror and realize 2 things: 1. YOU ARE STILL BLACK NO MATTER HOW MANY WHITE WOMEN YOU *** and 2. HOW CAN YOU GENERALIZE ALL BLACK WHEN YOU CAME FROM ONE?
I personally will give any man a chance as long as he is good to me. No matter what race he is. But I LOVE black men. Dark skin and sexy smile gets me all the time....
This guy the MTO is talkin about needs help!
he should and dont get it twisted i wouldnt *** a white woman with your *** so im no uncle tom im the real deal may be that need to start the cotton fields back up and remind you of what happen to your ancestors and you would stop being [EXPLETIVE] lovers
oh ya'll forgot...terrance howard, derek jeter lol oh he should went after oj dumb azz first lol
what a loser, [EXPLETIVE] stay on their job. that is what the about racism is stupid, let people live their life.
Uh Datsu7 I think thats racist. How you gonna talk about racism and call somebody a [EXPLETIVE] in the same sentence. Quit speaking you make yourself look stupid.
