Authorities are not investigating a slew of online threats against Obama and others, and let us tell you, this person has a major screw loose.
A lot of people don’t take them seriously because of the outrageousness of the posts, but it’s exactly that kind of crazy we need to look out for. Jared Lee Loughner, for example, posted all kinds of crazy paranoid things on the web before he tragically opened fire in Arizona.
In posts starting Sept. 27, a Google user offered up to $100,000 for killing the president, his wife and two daughters, and also called for the deaths of Mr. Bush, members of his administration and several members of Congress, including Representative Mike Pence of Indiana, chairman of the House Republican Conference.
Here’s what was written:
“Bomb these American Federal Buildings and American INFRASTRUCTURE BUILDINGS and KILL as many FBI, CIA, DNI and NSA PSYCHOPATHS as possible.”
And this is just the surface of the insane things this person has posted.
We hope they find them and get to the bottom of the issue. And when they do find them, we hope whoever does stays safe!
