Posting Death Threats Towards The President On Facebook Can Land You In Prison, In Case You Didn't Know Already

You would think this Public Service Announcement wouldn't be necessary but apparently some idiots didn't get the memo.

Content warning and disclaimer, the site linked to above is a Liberal News service .
I found the link from a news aggregate, FARK.
The Left Wing Bed Wetting is for entertainment purposes only.

Here is the Facebook post, for informational purposes only.
Making death threats on a public media platform is unwise to say the least. Doing so as a threat to The President is just plain stupid.

Now here is the US Code they are pointing to that codifies said behavior as criminal.

18 USC § 871 – Threats against President and successors to the Presidency

(a) Whoever knowingly and willfully deposits for conveyance in the mail or for a delivery from any post office or by any letter carrier any letter, paper, writing, print, missive, or document containing any threat to take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict bodily harm upon the President of the United States, the President-elect, the Vice President or other officer next in the order of succession to the office of President of the United States, or the Vice President-elect, or knowingly and willfully otherwise makes any such threat against the President, President-elect, Vice President or other officer next in the order of succession to the office of President, or Vice President-elect, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.

(b) The terms “President-elect” and “Vice President-elect” as used in this section shall mean such persons as are the apparent successful candidates for the offices of President and Vice President, respectively, as ascertained from the results of the general elections held to determine the electors of President and Vice President in accordance with title 3, United States Code, sections 1 and 2. The phrase “other officer next in the order of succession to the office of President” as used in this section shall mean the person next in the order of succession to act as President in accordance with title 3, United States Code, sections 19 and 20.

So the Libtards have notified the FBI and anyone else who will hold still long enough to listen to their screeching about this,

Yadda Yadda Yadda.

Moving on.

While I will say that I believe The Rule Of Law is basically dead in this country when it comes to The Powers that be and their Police State tactics and UnConstitutional power grabs, we need to remember that they still have the legal fig leaf to hide behind and will use the entire weight of government force to make examples of people who are not self aware enough to realize this fact.

Open War has not been declared and we are still eyeing each other like two cats circling one another in a dark alley.

As a matter of fact, one could use that analogy as an example of how to best act in the coming days. Think like an alley cat.

Lay your ears back, flex your claws and make very slow and deliberate movements while at all times being very observant of your surroundings and what your opponent is doing . When the fur starts flying then all bets are off and you fight tooth and nail.

We would all like to walk back out of that alley under our own power. You have to stay out of jail in the first place.
