Man to Be Charged for “Put Wings on Pigs” Facebook Post

Police in Chicopee, Massachusetts, have arrested a man accused of making a threat to commit a crime after they say he posted a threatening Facebook post.

Police say they were notified of the post, which read, "Put Wings on Pigs," by concerned persons.

They say they have identified the man behind the post as Charles Dirosa of Chicopee.

Dirosa will be summonsed to court.

The news comes in the wake of the fatal weekend shooting of two NYPD officers, who were killed by Ismaaiyl Brinsley, who committed suicide following the shooting.

Brinsley had earlier posted a photo of a silver handgun on Instagram.

That post also said, "I'm putting wings on pigs today."
