Posted on 11/22/2005 10:51:34 PM PST by ncountylee
A homeless man who was overheard saying in a dinner line at a shelter that he was going to "put two bullets into Hillary Clinton" was convicted, after a nonjury trial in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, of violating a federal statute that prohibits making death threats against a family member of a former president.
In his 19-page opinion in United States v. Richards, U.S. District Judge R. Barclay Surrick rejected a defense argument that Maurice Richards never made a "true threat" because he was merely talking to himself.
Assistant Federal Defender Elizabeth T. Hey argued in a post-trial brief that the government had failed to prove an essential element of its case because "the evidence is undisputed that the allegedly threatening words were never directed at any person; rather they were overheard when the man was talking to himself."

Can't say what I want to.
This is going to be the longest "thinking thread".
THree hots and a cot through winter, anyway...
I hope that Senator Clinton gets everything she deserves from her husband...an incurable STD for starters.
But he would need silver bullets, wouldn't he?
His sentence should have been free room and board for a lifetime at the Ritz,and regular eye examinations along with free glasses.
And plenty of range time.
ROTFLMAO.....I think we're on the same wave length:>)))))
Just a thought. When something happens to one of them are we supposed to put out the Stars and Stripes at half mast or the Hammer and Sickle?
I can read your mind. Can you read mine? :)
The Jolly Roger would work.
At least the judge spared him from having to smell old crusty for 30 days...
Can we start a fund to feed this man? lol
I find the idea of shooting Hillary! to be vile and disgusting.
Shooting is too good for treasonous, socialist scum.
I would think that a barrel of hot tar and a bag of feathers would be more appropriate.
Followed by a long drop at the end of a rope.
After a proper trial, of course. ;)
That would not happen...under the 8th Amendment....Cruel and Unusual.......
Oh, never mind. :-)
