No, I didn’t throw in the word “fanatical.” That was actually in the article’s lede:
A “fanatical supporter” of President Barack Obama is the prime suspect in an investigation into an Internet death threat against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
Adam Eugene Cox, 33, was arrested in Tennessee Friday on an unrelated warrant for assault.
Working with MCSO, deputies in Knoxville, Tenn., served a search warrant and seized evidence from Cox’s home on Friday after an investigation into the death threat came to light in October.
In that threat, Cox stated Arpaio and his family would be killed, according to MCSO. His 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 [expletive] with Obama. He will be buried 10 feet under and his whole family will be murdered along with him.”
Maybe it’s time for SCOAMF to tone down his rhetoric. Between this whack-job and the Ocuupy movement, Obama supporters have now logged over 6,000 arrests.
