Who is Really Guilty of Terroristic Threats? A Bored Teenager or an Open Carry Activist Who Jokes About Obama’s Assassination?
A 13-year-old Texas girl is in big trouble after she used Facebook and texts to threaten to take out her entire town.
The girl, whose name has not been released, was staying with relatives in Splendora, Texas. According to cops, she used social media to write about killing her whole community.
The threats soon spread via social media, authorities were contacted and the girl was arrested late Sunday night, the same day she had said she intended to go on her rampage.
“Kids are gonna be kids,” Constable Kenneth Hayden with Montgomery County Precinct 4 said, suggesting the girl posed no real threat despite her mean-spiritedness. “They’re going to make mistakes. This is a very serious mistake, and we’re hoping this person is gonna learn from this and be able to move on with her life.”
The young teen is currently facing felony charges for making a terroristic threat.
In the meantime, Kathy Perkins, founder of Moms With Guns Demand Action is still going strong – and free – days after joking about assassinating President Obama on her own Facebook page.
That threat, caught in a screen capture by Liberaland, read “Where’s an assasin (sic) when you need one?”
Since then she has fought back against getting caught red-handed by Liberaland threatening the White House and penned this response, which like much of what she has written on the internet, has now been removed.
“I under estimated my enemy’s love of spin and hatred for Americans who love our Constitution. Carry On Patriots! If you get attacked, know its because you are doing something good. Our enemies are vile and ruthless and wait for any scrape of spin to use against us. Im glad they are watching though because this Armed Mom wont be scared off by lies and threats and spin. ” [sic]
She added, “I am guilty of nothing and have nothing to hide while the current occupant of the Oval Office is guilty of high treason and needs to attack housewives to distract people from his evil.”
Liberaland pointed out that it is people like Perkins, as well as fellow internet agitator Chris Davis, that are the real threats in America, (and even more so than the bored and totally-wrong-to-even-think-about-it little girl currently behind bars.)
“These are the people that ask why Obama is not at the border,” Liberaland pointed out. “They hate immigrants with a passion… Kathy asks where an assasin [sic] is to take out our President. In contrast, I wonder where the Secret Service is.”
