AKRON, Ohio– An Akron man was arrested Thursday morning after federal authorities say he posted messages supporting a terrorist organization on social media.
Terrence J. McNeil, 25, is charged with one count of solicitation of crime of violence. He appeared in the U.S. District Court of the Northern District of Ohio in Akron.
According to the affidavit, McNeil posted several images on Tumblr on Sept. 25 in support of the Islamic State of Iraq, or ISIL.
The .gif file reads:

Kill them in their own lands, behead them in their own homes, stab them to death as they walk their streets thinking that they are safe…”
