Man arrested by Secret Service after threatening President on facebook

Not so tough now, eh?

?12

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/15/christopher-castillo-obama-facebook_n_2137360.html

On Nov. 1, Castillo wrote the following on Facebook, apparently in response to Obama's views on health care:
Thatís the last straw, if he gets re-elected Iím going to hunt him down and kill him watch the life disappear from his eyes.
Threatening the U.S. president's life is never taken lightly. After a tip-off from a concerned citizen, Secret Service agents arrived at Castillo's Melbourne home on Nov. 8 to investigate his intentions behind the Facebook post.

According to the felony complaint report filed by the Secret Service, an agent asked Castillo what his actions would be "if the President was standing here right now?" The angry man didn't hold back his opinions, replying he would ďbitch slap him, and beat the shit out of him.Ē He also stated he would scream and call Obama a terrorist.

Florida Today spoke with Castillo's father, who is arguing that there isn't anything behind the allegations against his son.

ďA lot of people say things on Facebook that they donít mean, and I understand the Secret Service has to do what they have to do, itís their job,Ē

May "look" like one but a "Man" he isn't. So I object to the headline.

He is just a criminal-minded "boy" and an ignoramus to boot.

Too bad he's going to have to "learn" how to become a "man" in jail.

write out a letter, then come to your senses and rip it up before you did something crazy like slap a stamp on it and slide it into the mailbox.

But this genius not only "mailed" out his threat on Facebook, he was still in form when the Secret Service was interviewing him. It seems to me that he isn't one of those people who write things they don't mean. He meant his threat and should locked away for a long time.

Although I agree that there are way too many nuts and lowlifes here, there are a lot more than three sane people. Don't forget that four million two hundred thirty-five thousand, two hundred seventy people voted for Obama/Biden. That's 4,235,270 people, of which at least half are sane.
And back on topic - this dope should be locked up for a long time.

The amazing coincidence here is that same shirtless, FBI agent from the Petraeus affair has been exchanging a lot of emails with Christopher Castillo for some months.

Flirty, but nothing overt. Stay tuned for more details as they break.

about what constitutes "hate speech" it might work.

Would have to be prosecuted, but at least it would give us a chance to ratchet it down.

"Free speech" can't be the cover for relentless hate-mongering. Nothing promotes violence more. Duh.

and then do some serious soul-searching where I f-ed up as a parent, and then where to get my kid some help.


Yes, I know, the kid probably feels this way in part because of the way he was raised.

Sick.
