Virginia Man Arrested For Sending Death Threats To President Obama
A Virginia man is behind bars after threatening to send a bomb to the White House to kill President Obama. Christopher Hecker was arrested last Thursday (MAY 3) after publicizing his disdain for the president, whom he believes is trying to put an end to patriotism.
Sighting Ted Nugent's racist rant against the Commander in Chief as validation, Hecker contacted the Turner Corp. last month detailing his steps towards killing Obama.
"I sent a bomb threat to the White House today and to several radio stations," Hecker wrote in an email to the company. "Sooner or later I will grab someone, maybe in the woods, on the trail, and beat the life out of them.
"[Obama] is the one that is destroying patriotism in the U.S.A. Ted Nugent is right. So, Obama is allowing me to be tortured to the point that I may murder someone, rather than deal with the mess he made. Your president is a coward."
Obama was in Virginia over the weekend to kick-off his re-election campaign, but Hecker was already in custody by the time the president touched down. The Waynesboro, Va. resident was arrested by the Secret Service outside of a local library. Agents were able to determine that Hecker was using computers at the facility to send out threats after exchanging several emails with him. During his hearing held Friday (May 4), Hecker announced plans to plead no contest to all charges, and asked to be sentenced to death—immediately.
Needless to say, a judge ordered him to undergo psychological evaluation.
