Obama’s Life Threatened

26 11 2010

Well- well- well-, it seems the nut crazy folks are not from the Tea-Parties or Conservatives after all. Its Obama’s very own people that want him dead!

Gio-

Michael Stephen Bowden, an elderly veteran, has been arrested after threatening to kill President Obama, according to multiple reports. Bowden was detained in Spartanburg County, South Carolina.

According to WYFF, a Secret Service affidavit alleges that Bowden told a Veterans Affairs nurse that he felt suicidal and that he was “thinking of traveling to Washington, D.C., to shoot the president because he was not doing enough to help African Americans.”

WLOX reports that Secret Service agents followed up with Bowden at his home, at which point the elderly veteran wrote a harrowing sworn statement in which he claimed, “If I had the opportunity to put Obama against the wall and shoot him, I would.”

According to the affidavit (PDF link), Bowden also “admitted to telling the Veterans Administration clinic nurse he had suicidal thoughts at times, and if he could kill anyone ‘I would kill, if possible, the President, for what he has done to this country.”

The affidavit also alleges that Bowden had three semi-automatic handguns and a semi-automatic rifle near his bed.

WYFF reports that Bowden, a former New York City policeman and firefighter, has been charged with threats against the president.

No matter who you voted for this is not cool. Threatening to kill someone is not acceptable!

Not only was his life threatened, so was his basketball game. I think he should stick to golf.

Here’s a couple of pictures to document the incident: This one is shortly after the doctor fixed him up. And here he is only hours later proving his toughness. He’s back in the game!

Mate,

No offense, but what does this have to do with “Its Obama’s very own people that want him dead!”? He was a white vet, retired NYPD, NYFD. Most NYPD and vets are conservative republicans..

Either way, it’s not cool and I am sure the goons at Huff post are already attacking every white vet, retired cop and firefighter who’s white and saying how deadly the tea party is.

Anyway, all your stuff is good stuff Gio!
