    It's about time!:mad:

    HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) -- A judge has sentenced an Alabama man to a year in federal prison for tweeting a threat against President Barack Obama.
    U.S. District Judge Lynwood Smith imposed the sentence on Jarvis M. Britton during a hearing Thursday in Huntsville.

    Britton must spend three years on probation after finishing the prison term.
    The 26-year-old Birmingham man pleaded guilty in March to threatening the president's life. Prosecutors say Britton sent a tweet in September that said, "Let's kill the president. F.E.A.R."

    Several people have been linked to a national militia group that prosecutors say was called F.E.A.R. It stands for Forever Enduring Always Ready.

    Melbourne man convicted for threatening President Obama on Facebook

    [​IMG]

    Castillo was angry at the president for his views on healthcare, according to agents.
    The defense also said the government was taking the Facebook comments out of context and that Castillo was responding to a political message a friend posted on his Facebook page.
    Government lawyers said the conversations are irrelevant and that the actual threat against the president is what matters to them.
    Castillo faces up to five years in prison. A sentencing date hasn't been set yet.

    Mississippi man sentenced for threatening to kill Obama

    By M. Alex Johnson, NBC News
    A Mississippi man was sentenced to 10 months in prison for threatening to kill President Barack Obama and to blow up the hospital that refused to treat his wife.


    David Williams, 45, of Attala, pleaded guilty in August to a two-count federal indictment. At his sentencing Thursday, U.S. District Judge Allen Pepper also ordered Williams — who could have faced 15 years in prison — to undergo anger management counseling.

    NC man gets prison time for tweeting Obama threats

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina man is headed to prison for threatening PresidentBarack Obama through Twitter during the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
    A federal judge sentenced Donte Jamar Sims on Wednesday to six months after he pleaded guilty to one count of knowingly and willfully making a threat to take the life of the president.
    Sims admitted using his Twitter account, (at)DestroyLeague_D, to post five threats in advance ofObama's September arrival to speak in Charlotte, including "Plotting president Obama's Murder," ''Ima Assassinate president Obama this evening!" and "The Secret Service is gonna be defenseless once I aim the Assault Rifle at Barack's Forehead."

    Authorities say the 22-year-old from Charlotte told them he was high on marijuana when he made the threats. He later wrote an apology to Obama.

    Lets see.
    30 seconds to think about it. 15 seconds to type it out, and years in prison because of it.
    Anyone considering doing the same thing, do yourself a favor and................:thinking: :thinking::thinking:

    They've already admitted that they're watching you.

    Sorry to be cynical, but isn't it strange that with all the death threats in the news that Obama has received for the past 5 years that the first and ONLY one to go to jail is a black guy?
