    Obama fan pleads guilty to threatening Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s life over ‘birther’ controversy

    A Knoxville, Tenn. man admitted on Tuesday that he threatened the lives of Maricopa County, Ariz. sheriff Joe Arpaio and his family because he feared the lawman might undermine Barack Obama by questioning the legitimacy of his birth certificate — his eligibility to serve as president.

    KTAR radio in Phoenix reported that Adam Eugene Cox, 33, wrote: “I plan to kill Arpaio first. He will be filled with a thousand bullet holes before the year is out. I promise you this. He won’t fuck with Obama. He will be buried 10 feet under and his whole family will be murdered along with him.”

    On Tuesday in a deal with prosecutors in Knox County, Tenn., Cox pleaded guilty to one count of harassment.

    According to KNXV-TV15, also in Phoenix, he will serve nearly a year in a “boot camp” program which is similar to probation. A court clerk told the TV station that Cox must also attend anger management counseling and maintain no contact with Arpaio.

    In a press release, Arpaio called Cox an “Obama fanatic.”

    In August 2011 the tough-on-crime sheriff launched an investigation into the authenticity of Barack Obama’s birth certificate, appointing a five-member “cold case posse” to investigate a local tea party organization’s claim that the document was fraudulent.

    On March 1 Arpaio held a press conference in Phoenix, announcing that there was significant evidence to suggest that Obama’s birth certificate was a “computer-generated forgery.”

  2. Good, he deserves a strict punishment if convicted. Regardless of the 'why' he did such a thing. This is how hate behavior deteriorates into craziness, just like the Giffords nightmare. They should burn in Hell as far as I'm concerned.

    Not limited to left or right, more of a degrading of the mind from all the hate speech.

    Yes, but unlike Giffords, where the left wing media ran the story every night for 2 months non stop. You won't hear a peep out of them about this. Not a peep.
  4. The giffords incident is no comparison.
