A man described as a President Barack Obama fanatic pleads guilty to threatening to kill Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
Adam Eugene Cox appeared in a Tennessee courtroom on Wednesday.
Cox threatened to kill the sheriff and his family.
Cox will not go to jail. He was sentenced to supervised probation.
So you can threaten to kill a sheriff and his family and get probation? I guess it’s open season on enemies of Obama now.
From the first link:
The postings read in part: “I plan to kill Arpaio first. He will be filled with a thousand bullet holes before the year is out. I promise you this. He won’t **** with Obama. He will be buried 10 feet under and his whole family will be murdered along with him.”
In the press release, Sheriff Arpaio calls Cox an “Obama fanatic” and believes Cox was “incensed” by his “ongoing investigation into (the) legitimacy of Obama’s birth certificate.”
Probably still gets to pull the lever for his hero again in November. A shame Obama’s too busy with basketball to issue a call for civility from his fans.
