The Jewish community centers arrest is a reminder that pundits should shut up and wait

A man arrested Friday morning in connection with the recent spate of threats made against Jewish groups is not at all who some in media guessed he would be.

Police arrested a 31-year-old African-American male, Juan Thompson, for making a series of threats against Jewish community centers, Jewish schools, a Jewish museum and the Anti-Defamation League, ABC News reported.

The arrest comes almost one year after Thompson was fired from the Intercept after he was caught fabricating quotes in several of his news reports.

The arrest also comes after certain media pundits speculated that the growing number of threats to Jewish organizations could be traced to Trump supporters and other bigots who feel emboldened by the 2016 election.
