    'Death to Obama' sign holder in Md. detained

    'Death to Obama' sign holder in Md. detained

    By DAVID DISHNEAU (AP) – 3 hours ago

    HAGERSTOWN, Md. — The Secret Service is investigating a man who authorities said held a sign reading "Death to Obama" outside a town hall meeting on health-care reform in western Maryland.

    The sign also read, "Death to Michelle and her two stupid kids," referring to the first name of President Barack Obama's wife, said Washington County Sheriff's Capt. Peter Lazich.

    Lazich said deputies detained the unidentified, 51-year-old man near the entrance to Hagerstown Community College about 1 p.m. Wednesday after getting calls from a number of people attending the meeting held by Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Md. Obama was not at the meeting.

    The sheriff's office turned the man over to the Secret Service, Lazich said.

    Barbara Golden, special agent in charge of the agency's Baltimore field office, said Thursday that an investigation is ongoing but declined further comment. A spokesman at the agency's Washington headquarters also declined to discuss the investigation.

    Police said there were no other arrests among the nearly 1,000 people, some carrying protest signs, who came to the college for the meeting or demonstrated off-campus.

    Cardin's national communications director, Sue Walitsky, called the incident "unfortunate." She said she was unaware of it until Thursday morning.

    Yep, they sure are a real class act. I imagine the (R)epugnants will squirm out of this.

    Before people state that this man had the Constitutional right to say Death to Obama, threatening someone is not protected by the first Amendment.

    Squirm out of what? A nutball holding a vicious sign who was rightly arrested?

    Me, I'm going to hold you personally responsible for this guy. Only fair, right?

    Actually, he should be prosecuted under the relevant laws, and then locked up if found guilty.

    For some reason the party of Code Pink and Cindy Sheehan, not to mention Bill Clinton, wants to pretend, just because they embrace their loons, that other parties are responsible for the weird behavior of everyone else.

    Would you kindly edit your post to link to the picture instead of displaying it? The man's shirt contains language inappropriate for the civilized areas of this forum.

    I personally don't think that Republicans should be held responsible for one man's actions.

    Agreed. There are right and left loons, and the commonality is that they are both loony.
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    Both people are idiots who don't respect our country. Lock them both up IMO. You can not threaten the President. Call him socialist. Paint a hitler mustache or devil horns on him -- but once you directly threaten or advocate violence towards the democratically elected leader of our country, you're not one of us anymore. Buh-bye, asshole.

    That being said -- the way some people try to deflect or derail a discussion by digging up something the other extreme once did -- pretty lame Harshaw. Pretty lame.

    Partisan hack douchebaggery of the highest order.

    Deal with the issue in OP or don't post.
