It is not unusual for a president or any of his family members to be threatened by people but it is uncommon for a person to announce the plan, least of all to a security man until the deed is done.
A 55 year old man from Wisconsin, Brian D. Dutcher, threatened to kill United States President Barack Obama. He purportedly told a security guard at a La Crosse library, “the usurper is here and if I get a chance I’ll take him out and I’ll take the shot,” referring to Obama, who was in Wisconsin promoting his proposal for overtime pay reform.
CNN reported that Dutcher also told a La Crosse detective that his threat was serious and that “he would not have said what he said if he didn’t intend to carry it out.”
He was also accused of posting on his Facebook account that he was going to be in La Crosse where the president had an appointment with the aim to “get a clear shot at the pretend president.” He also wrote that killing Obama was his “constitutional duty!”
He has since been arrested and currently being held pending initial appearance.
Strict security measures are being taken to protect the President especially as the Fourth of July celebration is ongoing!
