Tweet Threats to the President and get Thrown in Jail!

Twenty-five year old Jarvis Britton has been expressing his hatred on twitter for President Obama since June 28th. Britton posted  “Free speech? Really? Let’s test this! Let’s kill the president!” on his facebook page.  However, this threat just wasn’t enough for Britton. He also tweeted ” I’m going to finish this, if they get me, they get me #ohwell. I think we could get the president with cyanide”. The next day Britton tweeted ” Barack Obama, I wish  you were DEAD”. After seeing these threatening messages the Secret Service agent talked with Britton and informed him of the seriousness of the situation, but did not take any further action. A talk with the Secret Service agent clearly would not be a threat to this guy, because he continued to tweet threats about President Obama. Ignoring the comments from the Secret Service agent Britton did not hesitate to send another threatening tweet saying ” Let’s kill the President. F.E.A.R.”.

On August 28th, Britton wrote another angry tweet, mentioning Barack Obama’s twitter account, stating ” @Barack Obama Alabama will see my power in the next 36hours! Word to the secret service”.  Gloating with the thoughts that no one could stop him he tweeted  “Can the president stop it?  He only has 36 hours”. With no surprise,  Britton was arrested on September 21 and charged by criminal complaint for threatening the president.

The link below provides more details about the story and  the video with much more details about this case and what Britton’s neighbors had to say about this situation.
