November 20, 2015

Jesse Pelletier is a 24 year old man from Montreal who is now facing charges of uttering threats, inciting hatred against an identifiable group, making a declaration to incite fear among an identifiable group, and using a fake firearm, after a video of him goes viral.

The video, filmed in the wake of last week’s terrorist attack in Paris, shows Pelletier dressed as the Joker from Batman, saying he will be killing one Arab a week in Quebec and that he has a team of 10 others that have joined him.

Pelletier claims the video was a joke, and his mother-in-law Chantal Plante agrees but adds that “he is a bit racist.”
