Man who threatened to shoot family over Black Lives Matter shirts slapped with 60-day jail sentence

A San Francisco man has been handed a jail sentence for threatening a family wearing Black Lives Matter T-shirts, KTVU reports.

Steven L. Cibotti, 56, was charged with a hate crime over the incident, where he was eating at a restaurant in June of 2020 alongside a family that had just attended a BLM march. The family of five included three children aged seven, five and two who were wearing BLM T-shirts.

Cibotti, who was allegedly intoxicated, approached the table and yelled, "blue lives matter" and pushed their table.

When the family's father told to Cibotti to calm down, he replied, "F*** you, if I had a gun, I would shoot all of you."
