FBI Arrests Oklahoma Teabagger For Twitter Threats
An Oklahoma City man who announced on Twitter that he would turn an April 15 tax protest into a bloodbath was hit with a federal charge of making interstate threats last week, in what appears to be first criminal prosecution to stem from posts on the microblogging site.
Daniel Knight Hayden, 52, was arrested by FBI agents who identified him as the Twitter user CitizenQuasar. In a series of tweets beginning April 11, CitizenQuasar vowed to start a "war" against the government on the steps of the Oklahoma City Capitol building, the site of that city's version of the national "Tea Party" protests promoted by the conservative-leaning Fox News.
"START THE KILLING NOW! I am willing to be the FIRST DEATH!," read a tweet at 8:01 PM that day. "After I am killed on the Capitol Steps, like a REAL man, the rest of you will REMEMBER ME!!!," he added five minutes later. Then: "Send the cops around. I will cut their heads off the heads and throw the[m] on the State Capitol steps."
Man, that kind of ideologically-inspired rage has to be awkward, wouldn't you say, Darcey? Hitting a bit close to home?
That explicit threat against law enforcement officers probably wasn't the smartest campaign kick-off...
What an egregious violation of this poor man's free speech rights.
and like a REAL man, like a REAL conservative, he failed to follow through with his empty threats.
"Man, that kind of ideologically-inspired rage has to be awkward, wouldn't you say, Darcey?"
add "ruffles" alongside darcey; he expressed a deathwish toward me last night. he didn't really give a reason, but i'm sure it's a good one....
I'm guessing he thinks you're black. Or Muslim. White people, he just chastises severely.
