More than 150 law enforcement officers are searching for this man... 32-year-old Joseph Jakubowski. He's suspected of stealing more than a dozen firearms Tuesday night in Janesville, Wisconsin... with a possible plan of targeting schools and government leaders. Local officials say Jakubowski has been "highly agitated by national politics". He sent a 161-page manifesto to President Trump, listing injustices that he believes the government, society, and the upper class has put on him. (SOUNDBITE) ROBERT SPODEN, ROCK COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE, SAYING: "This manifesto has been evaluated by experts within the FBI behavioral analysis unit to better understand his mindset and locate investigative leads or evidence." Several public schools in Janesville canceled classes Friday as the manhunt continued.
