On October 5, 2007, a former student of the Mt. San Jacinto Community College District was arrested in Hemet on multiple felony charges (see bottom) after posting a threat to kill preschool children as revenge for alleged acts of the District's employees. The college began receiving phone calls from concerned citizens across the country shortly after 50 year old Edmond Frank MacGillivray, Jr., posted the threatening message on abcnews.com.
MacGillivray, who uses more than 60 variations of his assumed name, "Beast" aka "Sssotlohiefmjn Iamthebeast," was expelled by the college in June 2007 for numerous violations of the Student Code of Conduct, including making threats against the school in which he specifically referenced the Virginia Tech and Columbine campus massacres. Since that time the college has taken action to assure the safety and well being of students and personnel on its campuses.
MacGillivray is well known to the FBI and Homeland Security. He advocates terrorist activities, claims to be an Al-Qaeda leader, and supports Al-Qaeda ideology. He recently offered a reward online for the assassination of government officials, including the President, police officers and judges.
The arrest by Mt. San Jacinto College Police Department came as a result of the heightened security concerns at the college. At the time of MacGillivray's arrest, a neighborhood acquaintance expressed relief, saying "Beast is a very dangerous person and he is going to really hurt someone soon."
Charges are: Cultivation of Marijuana, Criminal Threats, Threatening Public Officials, Stalking/Harassing, Harassing Communications, Threat to Deprive Civil Liberties.
