Man Using Crucifix As A Weapon Exposed Himself To Federal Officer So Is Jailed in SDNY

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 5 –  Michael Bryant is in jail on misdemeanor charges of "intimidating a Federal officer." But there's more to the story. 

 On September 4 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

 Bryant's Federal Defender blamed the incident, or incidents, on mental health and Bryant not getting his medications including now while incarcerated. 

  Assistant US Attorney Brandon Harper said the intimidation charge involved Bryant calling a federal office a "white b*tch" and exposing himself. 

  The Federal Defender said in a previous felony, the weapon was not a loaded firearm but rather a crucifix.  

 AUSA Harper said Bryant had used the crucifix to threaten a person of "Arabic heritage."   Judge Netburn said due to danger to the community, there will be no release.

The case is US v. Bryant (Netburn).
