Time Warner Cable employee facing prison time for making Facebook threats
A Time Warner Cable employee has been charged with making terroristic threats after he allegedly wrote on his Facebook page last week that he wanted to kill his supervisor and co-workers.
Jason Steward, 29, a Bronx resident, was feuding with his supervisor regarding overtime pay.
On September 13, another co-worker at the cable company noticed that Steward had posted several threatening messages on his Facebook page, alleges the Queens district attorney’s office.
The messages allegedly on Steward’s page, in part, read: “There is not a word in the dictionary that can express the rage that im in! I really really hate (him)!… I wish I had a machine gun to give them all the business . . . I will go to work and blow all them low budget [expletive deleted] heads off . . . Make u suck the gun before I off U [expletive deleted].”
When he was arrested, Steward allegedly apologized, and said, “At the time I was intoxicated and angry. I never intended to hurt anyone and words will not express how sorry and senseless my behavior was; I am deeply embarrassed for my stupid actions.”
Steward is charged with making a terroristic threat and second-degree aggravated harassment. If convicted, he faces up to seven years in prison.
He was fired from Time Warner on Sept. 15.
