Rookie Delaware Police Officer Fired for Threatening to Kill Victim

Less than a year into the job, a Delaware cop was arrested for making terrorist threats against a citizen, who was only trying to help another citizen file a complaint against police.

“I’m going to call my boys and have them come and lock you up,” Wilmington police officer Julian Michel told the victim, threatening to arrest him for disorderly conduct.

“I’m going to kill that motherfucker,” Michel threatened, pointing at the victim. “I’m going to shoot you.”

Michel was off-duty, but identified himself as a Wilmington police officer, which made the victim fear for his life, knowing he was armed, according to [__The News Journal.__](http://www.delawareonline.com/story/news/crime/2016/01/20/wilmington-police-officer-fired-after-tuesday-arrest/79071062/)

The incident was captured on video by another witness, which led to Michel’s arrest on a charge of terrorist threatening, which is only a misdemeanor unless the victim is at least 62 years old.

Wilmington police fired Michel but have not released the video. However, we have already made a public records request for the video, so we’ll see how long it takes for them to comply.

We are also trying to find out what the original complaint was about, which led to Michel making these terrorist threats.

Another witness came forth supporting the victim’s story and even provided video recording of the incident, where Michel is seen driving up to the victim and confronting the unidentified man.

Michel, 26, was hired by the Wilmington Police Department in December 2014 and graduated from the Police Academy on May 2015.

Apparently, Michel did not have any other complaints or past reports of wrongdoing in his file since first working with the Wilmington Police Department. He also never got around to winning any departmental awards.

But he has a whole lifetime ahead of him to find another job at another department.

The News Journal reports that Michel’s next court hearing is set for Feb. 19.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
