Death threats on Twitter?
There was a recent posting here on DU, that mentioned death threats via Twitter, against a union (SEIU?) that's very active in this Health Care discussion. I can't seem to find it though. Can anyone here help?

1. Here
This search yields the tweet as retweeted hundreds of times.

This is the joker who posted it, but has since deleted it from his home page list

4. What a Fucking Asshole. Read this:
..

"There are probably myriad ways that I offended/worried readers, depending on the individual, that garners an apology from me."

Probably a wife beater and dog kicker.

3. Thnks to both of you!
I had briefly mentioned that Twitter "death threat" on a unionl-related listserve that I manage and contribute to. But being unable to locate the original source again, I was in an embarrassing spot. I was unable to verify that allegation, to what may have been some deeply skeptical people. I'm okay now! Once again, thanks.

5. What was said: "If... ...have a license to carry....carry."
"ScottEO If ACORN/SEIU attends these meetings for disruptive purposes, and you have a license to carry....carry."
