Man indicted for threatening to have Mafia lynch black people

A white man was indicted after threatening to have two black people killed by the Mafia.

Ian Rubin left New York to move to Florida, where he began to accumulate quite the criminal record before moving back up to Brooklyn.

There, on Feb. 19 and 20, according to Assistant District Attorney India Sneed, Rubin allegedly “threatened two people with a knife, saying he’s going to kill a n—-r tonight,” reports the New York Daily News.

“I did time in the penitentiary, you are going to die today,” Rubin allegedly told one of the men. According to court documents, he also claimed that he was “a hitman for the Mafia and that the Mafia likes to kill and lynch n—–s, and (Rubin) would have the Mafia chop up (the victims).”

Rubin also allegedly told detectives that the “heroin addicts on the fifth floor are plotting against” him.

Rubin’s next court date is May 3, and if he is convicted, he will face up to a year in jail.

This incident happened a month before James Jackson, an admitted white supremacist, traveled to New York from Baltimore in order to kill black men, fatally stabbing Timothy Caughman with a sword before turning himself in to police.
