The District Attorney's Office has charged Staphmeal blogger Joshua Scott Albert with criminal solicitation to commit murder, terroristic threats, and harassment. Albert created Facebook pages calling for the murders of two top law-enforcement officials, and launched another that supported the two alleged cop-killers. He also was responsible for starting another page calling for the killing of Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, which put him squarely on the radar of the Secret Service.

Albert is rumored to have flown the coop up to New England, but, Tasha Jamerson from the D.A.'s Office said that authorities are looking for Albert as the charges were approved over the weekend.
