And some of them are dumb enough to take to Twitter with death threats against the Commander in Chief. Now, for those of you who don't know, that's a federal crime. You're going to be convicted --the evidence is there, HELLO--and you will do all of your time. There is no federal parole.
Well, you'll do all of your time if you're a specific race--but I'll get to that in a minute.
A 21-year-old Charlotte man, Donte Jarmar Sims, is in custody after he tweeted about killing the president while the Democratic National Convention was taking place in Charlotte. What a genius.
I can only imagine what's happening to this fool, who according to the Huffington Post said he was high when he tweet the threats, while he's waiting to go to court next week. Federal prisoners really have nothing to lose. And I'm sure the federal jail is NOTHING like the Mecklenburg County Jail.
The threats were done via Sims' Twitter account on Monday morning.
The first tweet was sent out at 10:06 a.m. on Monday when Sims tweeted, "Well Ima Assassinate president Obama this evening !... Gotta get this monkey off my chest while he's in town."
"Ima hit president Obama with that Lee Harvey Oswald swagg," he tweeted just two minutes later.
WBTV took at look at Sims' Twitter account, which is still active, and saw that he sent out five threatening messages within a 14-minute span.
"The Secret Service is gonna be defenseless once I aim the Assault Rifle at Barack's Forehead ... F* the #DNC," he continued.
Sims is being held at a federal detention center and has a hearing scheduled for next Tuesday.
Investigators say that Sims was interviewed by Secret Service agents at his home where he admitted that he hated the President.
WBTV has learned that Sims' tweets were discovered by a Secret Service intelligence specialist.
In the last of Sims' tweets about the president, he said that he was "plotting president Obama's murder" and that Obama "wont even make it to the coliseum."
Sims has been arrested in Mecklenburg County at least four different times on charges related to drugs, window tinting violation and other vehicle violations.
Sims is scheduled to appear in federal court on Tuesday morning.
You'd think this would be the end of idiots on Twitter. BUT NO! A 16 year old from Ohio committed a very similar crime.
Alyssa Douglas tweeted last night: “Someone needs to assassinate Obama…like ASAP.”
The Clinton Massie School District, where Douglas is a high school student, had a meeting with her and her parents.
The Secret Service is also investigating the threat, and the findings will be reported to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Southern District of Ohio.
Same crime, different results. But we're in post racial America. OK.
