Wisconsin man who wrote anti-Trump manifest, stolen guns, has been sentenced to a prison

Joseph Jakubowski, 33, was sentenced to 14 years in prison Wednesday for stealing firearms, and the sending of a walking-161-page manifesto that he sent to President Trump.

A Wisconsin man who sent an anti-government manifesto to President Trump and confessed to the theft of a huge cache of firearms, was sentenced to 14 years in federal prison Wednesday — but not before he cursed the judge and threatened to commit even more crimes.

Joseph Jakubowski, 33, had asked U. S. District Judge William Conley, either to free him or to give him a death sentence. In court Wednesday, he said in a profanity-laced back-and-forth with the judge that he rejected rules and the law. “I don’t care about your damn laws. (Expletive) the laws, (expletive) the rules and the (expletive) out of you.”

Jakubowski facing 20 years in federal prison after he was convicted in September of two weapons charges arising from an April 4 robbery at Armageddon Supplies in Janesville. The police said that he then fired in his car and disappeared, setting off a hectic 10-day manhunt.

The 161-page ” manifesto would be made of references to health insurance, taxes and religion, WTMJ-TV reported in April.

“We, the people should also for this sick minded people that belong to the system! We must spill their blood!” Jakubowski allegedly wrote.

He also reportedly said: “I have never been a thief! I hate thieves! But because this system has stolen from my natural right to the protection and defence of life..this system has given me no choice but to commit crime to have the means to protect life!”

Rock County Sheriff Richard Spoden said Jakubowski’s manifesto included threats against public officials, and schools.

In the midst of the manhunt for Jakubowski, the law enforcement officials ordered a stronger security detail for the House of representatives Paul Ryan, who hails from the city of Janesville, where the manhunt place, and his family.

The gun store owner told the judge Wednesday that he wanted the 14 firearms that are still missing to be returned, but Jakubowski said that that will not happen.

In May, Jakubowski told WTMJ that the weapons are “buried” and he does not know where they are.
