Cops: Man arrested for threatening Colorado Representative Rhonda Fields

Denver Police arrested Franklin "Frank" Sain, 42, for threatening Colorado Representative Rhonda Fields, an Aurora Democrat.

According to police, he left emails and voice mails for Fields' office which were threatening in nature. Fields has sponsored two pieces of gun-control legislation and is a vocal advocate for restrictions on firearms.

John Morse, President of the Colorado Senate, says the threats were directed to Fields' daughter. He noted this was particularly concerning and "way beyond disrespectful." Fields' son was shot and killed in 2005.

3. We can only hope so. To threaten the child of a legislator is repugnant.

All the worse to him!

5. Threatening Rhonda Fields' child.

Rep. Fields already lost a son to gun violence.

This guy ought to be publicly horsewhipped.

11. If you want to be really disgusted, take a look in the Denver Post's comment section for this story.

http://www.denverpost.com/breakingnews/ci_22664904/denver-man-booked-suspicion-harassing-colorado-rep-rhonda

It just goes to show - because of the astroturfing by the Koch brothers' fifty-cent brigade, newspaper comment sections are a total cesspit.

This story has over two hundred posts, many of them by teabaggers who are actually defending this asshole. Concerned over his "First Amendment rights". I'm sorry, I thought centuries of jurisprudence have established that death threats are not protected by the First Amendment.
