Concord, California – According to Contra Costa County District Attorney Diana Becton, a Concord man has been indicted on four felony charges by a jury. The charges are related to posting antisemitic murder threats online and illegally possessing an assault weapon.
“Ross Farca’s criminality disrupted the lives of countless members of the Jewish faith within our community. Hate crimes and threats of this magnitude will not be tolerated,” District Attorney Diana Becton said.
On June 14, the 25-year-old Farca used the screen name “Adolf Hitler” to publish hate speech on an online gaming site. According to the district attorney’s office, he said on the internet that he wished to repeat the actions of previous mass synagogue shootings by killing any responding law officers.
The post led Concord Police to investigate his home, and officers discovered an assault weapon, ammo, and Nazi-related items during their investigation.
The prosecution believed Farca was an ongoing threat to the community and held him in custody throughout the case. Farca’s sentencing hearing is scheduled for December 29.
