 Clearly a disturbed individual.

 

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
A Charlotte man is behind bars after investigators say he threatened to kill President Obama during the Democratic National Convention.
 
Investigators told WBTV that Donte Jarmar Sims, 21, was arrested on Wednesday, charged in a felony criminal complaint accusing him of threatening the president's life.
 
The threats were done via Sims' Twitter account on Monday morning.
 
The first tweet was sent out at 10:06 a.m. on Monday when Sims tweeted, "Well Ima Assassinate president Obama this evening !... Gotta get this monkey off my chest while he's in town."
 
"Ima hit president Obama with that Lee Harvey Oswald swagg," he tweeted just two minutes later.
 
WBTV took at look at Sims' Twitter account, which is still active, and saw that he sent out five threatening messages within a 14-minute span.
 
"The Secret Service is gonna be defenseless once I aim the Assault Rifle at Barack's Forehead ... F* the #DNC," he continued.
 
Sims is being held at a federal detention center and has a hearing scheduled for next Tuesday.
 
Investigators say that Sims was interviewed by Secret Service agents at his home where he admitted that he hated the President.
 
WBTV has learned that Sims' tweets were discovered by a Secret Service intelligence specialist.
 
In the last of Sims' tweets about the president, he said that he was "plotting president Obama's murder" and that Obama "wont even make it to the coliseum."
 
Sims has been arrested in Mecklenburg County at least four different times on charges related to drugs, window tinting violation and other vehicle violations.

There are crazies on both sides.  I saw a report on the DNC where a lady said she'd like to kill Mitt Romney.

Hahaha... Anyhoo there is a reason the Obama did not come to Charlotte in 08... He tried 3 different times and every time it got canceled bc people were threatening to shoot him.
