Last summer, an Alabama man made the foolhardy choice of threatening President Barack Obama via Twitter. After getting a visit from the Secret Service, 26-year-old Jarvis Britton apologized for his outbursts. However, a second round of threats this past September landed Britton a year in federal prison.
A nursing student from Denver was arrested after telling his therapist that he wanted to kill President Obama, and children at random. Mitchell Kenneth Kusick, a student at Colorado Mesa University, was being held in custody Tuesday (Nov. 13), under suspicion of making threats against the commander in chief.
