Texan faces charges for posting Obama death threat
April 29, 2010 12:16 EDT
DALLAS (AP) -- A Dallas man has been charged with threatening to kill President Barack Obama in an online posting.
A criminal complaint indicates Brian Dean Miller was upset about health care reform, citing his March 21 Craigslist post.
The complaint says the 43-year-old has admitted he threatened to kill the president.
It says he called for a revolution and that he was "dedicating life to the death of Obama and every employee of the federal government."
Agents subpoenaed Craigslist and AT&;T to track Miller down.
The complaint says agents arrested Miller and seized his computer March 25. They found no weapons at his home.
He will be arraigned in federal court Friday.
If convicted, Miller faces a maximum five years in prison and $250,000 fine.
Have you seen crazy posts on CL? I see them all

I don't do CL. This guy deserves more than a fine and 5 years. I am no fan of Obama, but threatening anyone's life is never something I would find acceptable.

The President is the last person you would want to threaten, how stupid do you have to be to not know that.
The guy has to be dumber then a box of rocks.

You all know how I feel about Obama, but his death wouldn't fix the problem! Anyone thinking that is a few sandwiches short of a picnic imo. The guy was an idiot. I suppose it didn't occur to him that military members work for the federal government..and he would have them dead as well. Whatever. Five years seems a little short considering good behavior and such
