FAIRFIELD — A Suisun City man was arrested Monday after being accused of posting on a social network site that he supported Friday’s shootings in Connecticut and had thought about committing a similar act.

Sergio Cabada, 18, was arrested without incident around 3:30 p.m. after Fairfield Police served a search warrant at his Suisun City home. Police said several items were seized from the home to complete the investigation and to prevent any potential violent acts.

Police were notified about the comments around 9 a.m. Monday and immediately opened an investigation. Cabada was eventually booked in Solano County Jail on suspicion of felony criminal threats, according to police.

A post on Cabada’s Facebook page from Saturday mentions an apology for an earlier post. The post said he was being “stupid,” “edgy” and “cocky,” while mentioning “the tragic loss of those children.”

    We say so often that you can’t legislate stupid. How do you get through to a kid like this? Perhaps he’s too immature or simply doesn’t “get it?” OR maybe he was just trying to be “cute” and screwed up…royally. The entire world is grieving this atrocity and most of us are having difficulty processing the emotional anguish within that town. My wife and I were discussing this yesterday and I don’t believe his arrest is precedent setting? IMO, we have to be accountable and if getting arrested just so the law can sneak a peek into your activities especially after such threats, then so be it. It is a tough case and does go to free speech. We know there are limits and most clear thinking folks recognize the line and practice restraint if not respect for it. But what about this kid and others like him?
