Man Accused Of Threatening Super Bowl With 'Big Bang'

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A man accused of leaving voice mail on the Jacksonville City Council president's phone saying "killing 100,000 people would get people's attention," was arrested Thursday, accused of making a bomb threat.

"It was quite threatening toward the Super Bowl and making sure it didn't happen," Council President Elaine Brown said of the long message left at her office Tuesday afternoon. The message began, "Hi Elaine."

A man who said his name was Albert Strickland left a cell phone number police traced to Jacksonville resident Albert Ray Strickland, 56.



(snip)

In the message, the man said Jacksonville didn't deserve the Super Bowl and said he wanted the mayor, city council and members of law enforcement to resign. He said police had tried to kill him several times.

In the message, the man described himself as a scientist intent on stopping the Super Bowl, that he believed in the Big Bang theory and was "obsessed with the size it needs to be."

1. Well, I hope he can get the help he needs
though most likely it will only be detention and not actual mental health help.

2. The size of what?
I'm glad he believes in the Big bang, but does that rule out the Superbowl?
