[efoods]A Roanoke man faces charges of making online threats against two police officers — one in Oakland, Calif., and one in Martinsville — after reading newspaper accounts of incidents in which they used deadly force.
Jeffrey L. Weaver, 47, made the threatening comments in January on a news Web site called infowars.com, according to a complaint filed earlier this week in U.S. District Court in Roanoke.
Weaver, who was ordered held without bond Friday, logged onto the site using the name “F—ThePIGS,” the complaint states.
