.

Louis Capriotti, 45, is charged with transmitting a threat, according to the U.S. attorney's office in Chicago. He was arrested near his home Tuesday morning, officials said

In a voicemail left for a member of Congress from New Jersey, Capriotti allegedly said if people "think that Joe Biden is going to put his hand on the Bible and walk into that f-ing White House on January 20th, they're sadly f-ing mistaken."

Capriotti identified himself as "a nine-year Marine, active duty" and allegedly said "we will surround the motherf-ing White House and we will kill any motherf-king Democrat that steps on the motherf-ing lawn." Prosecutors said Capriotti never served in the military.

"Our office takes the security of our public servants very seriously," U.S. Attorney John Lausch said in a statement. "Individuals who cross the line of free speech by making unlawful threats will be held accountable."

1. who could have predicted?

The 11-page criminal complaint alleged Capriotti has a history of leaving profane voicemails for members of Congress dating to at least 2017.

“Capriotti’s messages, in almost every instance, included profanity, along with derogatory remarks concerning the race, religion, political affiliation, or physical appearance of certain (Congress) members and others,” the FBI agent who signed the complaint affidavit stated. “Capriotti screamed while leaving the messages, spoke of ‘rais(ing) mother f------ hell’ and referred to certain members as ‘terrorists’ or ‘gun grabbing.’”

U.S. Capitol Police early last year asked the FBI for assistance in tracking down Capriotti. When agents interviewed him in February 2020 in the Chicago area, Capriotti acknowledged that he was the one who made the calls but explained he was “just f------ with them” and that he “didn’t mean any ill will,” the complaint alleged.
Agents warned him to stop making calls or he could be subjected to charges, the complaint stated.
Instead, the charges alleged, Capriotti escalated the threats in his messages to include direct threats of violence.
=============

Court records show Capriotti pleaded guilty in 2016 in Cook County criminal court to charges of making a telephone threat against a relative of someone who had obtained an order of protection against Capriotti. He was sentenced to two years’ probation, which he completed satisfactorily.

Capriotti was also charged in 2014 with violating that same order of protection, records show. He pleaded guilty and had to take domestic violence classes through the probation department.

7. Just think

The pink mist will not stain the red hat. Those will be easy to pick out. I agree with you, it is time to treat these terrorist like Bin Laden cultist. Shoot at our leaders and military, game one. Send a message. The US will not tolerate an attack from within. Go after their leaders and instigators. No mercy. This is not a video game, that is not your couch. You do not hit reset and start over after you are shot in the face. Game is actually over. Forever.
Now go upstairs and see if momma has vettles ready.

8. "a nine-year Marine, active duty"

Prosecutors said Capriotti never served in the military.

These basement teRrorists lie as much as their Dear Leader Hair FuRor does.

They probably think that's the way to get themselves elected as CONservative POTUS.

9. "will be held accountable."

That phrase is getting worn out. I want to hear officials start saying things like, "We are going to throw his sorry ass in jail." Or, "We are going to bring back death by stoning."

Feel free to pile on with your recommendations.
