    I am sure the MSM will pursue these threats with the same alacrity, focus and vigor to say nothing of exposure, given to other threats of this nature associated with this type of debate/argument and atmosphere, in fact, I am sure of it!:rolleyes:



    Records detail threats against Walker, lawmakers
    About a dozen matters are under criminal investigation

    By Bruce Vielmetti of the Journal Sentinel

    More than 100 pages of public records released Thursday reveal again how high emotion, bad judgment and anti-social media combined in February to generate a nationwide investigation of threats against Gov. Scott Walker and lawmakers on both sides of his budget-repair bill.

    Emails, Twitter streams, Facebook and Craigslist postings, phone calls and even a few notes sent by U.S. mail ranged from overt threats of violence to promises of political retaliation to benign-sounding requests for investigations of lawmakers' actions. A surprising number of even the most vile messages came from readily-identifiable senders.

    The vast majority of about 90 matters referred to the state authorities were determined to present "no criminal nexus or viable threat," but about a dozen remain open as cases with the Division of Criminal Investigation, according to Assistant Attorney General Kevin Potter.

    Of the 78 actions made public, about 30 were directed at Democrats, a few less at Walker and other Republicans, with the balance made up of vague or implied threats against no specific target, or concerns over demonstrators.

    The records - a spreadsheet of referrals and copies of suspect communications, both written and oral - were released in response to a public records request from the Journal Sentinel and news media after the protracted budget-repair bill showdown that began in February.

    Dozens of emails suggest Walker or legislators should be shot or hanged, or should watch their backs, look over their shoulders or resign. One man tweeted that he prayed an anvil would fall from the sky onto Walker.

    FBI agents from Maine to California to Florida also got involved, the records show. A suspect in Maine was arrested after sending letters to that state's Republican U.S. senators suggesting that Walker should be killed and that all Republican governors resign.

    A Burbank, Calif., resident who sent a long email rant offering a $50,000 bounty for Walker was interviewed by federal agents who determined he was mentally challenged and not a true threat.

    Police in Nebraska tracked down a man who posted to a Wisconsin man's Facebook page that he expected the shooting to start soon and that he would be ready to inflict nonlethal shots so others could hear screams.

    He told officers he got "carried away," didn't intend to harm anyone and has never been to Wisconsin.

    Only one person has been charged so far with making threats, Katherine R. Windels, 26, of Cross Plains.

    The records indicate, however, that a 37-year-old state Department of Corrections officer assigned to Milwaukee was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct alleging a verbal threat to shoot Walker in March. It does not appear from state court records that he was ever formally charged.

    When all the left's constituents are union meathead thugs, gang members and murderous criminals, Communists and Socialists, uneducated high school drop outs, black panthers, drug addicts, illegal aliens, welfare recipients, acorn ex-employees, transients and mental patients is this really a big shocker?

    They left is made up of the dregs of society.

    Just look at the left wing kooks on this board. :)

    I wish the OP would read his own story:
    it wasn't just liberals - in fact, Democrats received more threats than the Governor
