Son Of Lieutenant Governor Candidate Allegedly Posted About Killing Cops

The son of Democratic lieutenant governor candidate Tara Mosley-Samples is in protective custody after being accused of making social media posts  about killing police officers. 

Two posts purportedly made by 24-year-old Brian Newell read "I BET I KILL A COP TODAY" and "kill cops." The Kucinich-Samples campaign issued a statement saying Newell made the posts after suffering an "emotional episode." It says he has long-running mental health and addiction issues that have previously led to arrests and criminal charges.
