A Michigan man, known on Facebook as Champagne Torino, is wanted on "existing warrants" and is a massive troll. When Redford Police Department posted about a home invasion, Torino commented saying "You guys suck!".

To which the police department replied: "Michael, given your veiled threats to residents and officers on other threads, and your inability to engage in constructive dialogue on this page, this is your one warning. If it continues you will be blocked."

According to reports Torino hasn't turned himself in yet. Will he be a man of his word?

A young man quoted under the pseudonym "Maksim" told independent channel TV Rain about the trolls' mission to meddle in US politics and wage an "information war" against the country.
