Alabama Man Indicted For Threatening to Kill Obama

A Birmingham, Alabama man was indicted Wednesday for posting threats to the life of President Barack Obama on Twitter.

Jarvis Britton, 25, was charged with “knowingly threatening to kill, kidnap or inflict bodily harm on the president by tweeting the message, ‘Let’s kill the president. F.E.A.R.’ on Sept.14,”  according to a statement issued by US Attorney Joyce Vance.

Britton was taken last week, but refused to cooperate with authorities’ attempts to fingerprint and photograph him.

Court documents showed that Britton began threatening the US president in June with tweets such as “Free speech? Really? Let’s test this! Let’s kill the president!”  It is unclear whether Britton is officially connected to a local militia group called F.E.A.R. – Forever Enduring Always Ready, which has cited goals such as overthrowing the US government and killing the president.

One Response to “Alabama Man Indicted For Threatening to Kill Obama”

  1. regarding the obamas and http://www.thewhitehousenegro.com:

    talk radio hosts and right-wing nutjobs WHINE and WHINE and WHINE about how obama is doing nothing to create jobs or to contribute to the bleak economy (or, bleakonomy) – while at the same time bashing the divine miss o.

    i'm tired of it, the obamas are doing a GREAT DEAL for the economy. what about michelle obama's multitude of chefs and servants? those are JOBS. what about her dresses, they are CUSTOM-MADE – she PAYS designers $100,000 for them, therefore she is hiring someone – and therefore she is stimulating the "bleakonomy". $5,000 for hair and makeup, again it is affirming employment and affirming capitalism – it is an economy stimulator. that is just the tip of the iceberg regarding her spending, but I commend michelle obama for her life of excess.

    their vacations, don't forget about their vacations, the entourage thataccompanies them is paid for! they spend because they want to contribute to the economy, they're living large to benefit the little people – not to benefit themselves! "i'm not doing this for me, I'm doing it for you," that's exactly what ferris said to cameron. so what if cameron had a car, so what if his dad had a ferrari, ferris still said it: "i'm not doing this for me, I'm doing it for you". the obamas may have steve winwood over to the white house to sing "back in the high life again" over caviar and fine wine, but they do it for nobody but you and me!

    it wouldn't bother me if word got out that michelle spent $1,000 for someone to design her a vibrator, she'd be stimulating the economy in an effort to stimulate her vagina! actually, what she'd be doing is stimulating her vagina in an effort to stimulate the economy…because she is a beautiful and unselfish human being.
