Man Threatens President’s Life on Craigslist: Gets Two Years in Jail

CraigslistRobert Wilonsky writes in the Dallas Observer:

You remember Brian Dean Miller, right? Sure you do. He’s the 43-year-old Northeast Dallas man who, back in March, posted to Craigslist’s “Rants & Raves” section an item titled “Obama must die.” Among its highlights, reminds the U.S. Attorney’s Office today, he wrote: “People the time has come for revolution. It is time for Obama to die. I am dedicating my life to the death of Obama.” That was his first post. Then came another one in which he wrote, “I am actively working to kill the president and destroy the U.S. government. … This is war. Join me. Or don’t. I don’t care. I’m not laying down anymore.”

Right. That guy.

Anyway. The U.S. Attorney’s Office just sent word: Miller, whose postings were brought to Secret Service’s attention by a concerned citizen in Arlington, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge David C. Godbey, who gave Miller 27 months in federal prison — far shorter than the five-year sentence he faced following his arrest and April arraignment. He’d tried to get out on bail in June. The judge said: Nope, too dangerous. He pleaded guilty one month later, before his trial was set to start.

    This takes me back to the 90’s, when lone gunmen would try to single-handedly storm the White House to kill Clinton. It’s a good thing these people don’t seem to have enough active brain cells to put together a workable assassination plot.

      I dunno if going to jail for two years for writing things on craigslist is “kid glove” treatment.

        for a direct, specific intent laden threat against the physical person of the president of the United States…

        …yeah…he got off light. If those threats had been made against Bush or Reagan…I’m not sure we’d even know there was a trial.

I know, break out the tar and feathers before I get away. I'm a horrible human being, I should be ashamed myself, I should have no say in politics, blah...
