Digital News Report- U.S. Attorney Dunn Lampton announced today that a man named Steven Joseph Christopher was arrested by agents of the United States Secret Service for making threats against President-Elect Barack Obama. Christopher, who is from Wisconsin, was arrested without incident in Brookhaven, Mississippi for threats he made against President-Elect Barack Obama on an Internet chat forum on Jan. 11, 15 and 16, 2009.
“Threats against the President-Elect will be taken very seriously,” said U.S. Attorney Lampton. “Use of internet chat rooms to express those threats is as much a crime as uttering the words. Threats of this nature will be pursued swiftly and vigorously.”
Agents of the U.S. Secret Service and members of the Lincoln County, Mississippi, Sheriff’s Department and agents of the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation made the arrest after a criminal complaint by the owner of the website charging him with a violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 871 which makes it a crime for anyone to threaten to kill the President-Elect of the United States. The maximum penalty for this offense is 5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
John Dowdy, Chief of Criminal Division has stated, “once we determined the IP address came back to user Lena Lock in Brookhaven, it kind of focused our investigation down into that area… We’ve been actively pursuing this since the afternoon of the 14th when we were put on notice… We got the call this (Friday) morning from the Secret Service to help go pick him up.”
Christopher appeared Friday afternoon before U.S. Magistrate Judge James C. Sumner of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, in New Orleans, Louisiana. When the Judge asked if he suffered any mental illness or took any medication, he responded, “there is nothing wrong with my mind.”
According to an Affidavit filed by Special Agent Kelly Adcox with the United States Secret Service, Christopher posted the following on the Web site www.alien-earth.org on Jan. 11, 2009:
ok we have 6 days until my Presidential Assasination.
Yes, I have decided I will assasinate Barack Obama. It’s really nothing personal about the man. He speaks well, has a loving although controlling wife and two cute daughters. But I know it’s for the country’s own good that I do this. And I’m not racist either, my family is a little, but isn’t all Italian and european families? I mean how many times have you heard the word (racial slur) in the comforts of your home? I have a lot, and it really bothered me and I would confront them about it. No, it’s not because I’m racist that I will kill Barack, it’s because I can no longer allow the Jewish parasites to bully their way into making the American people submit to their evil ways. How many of you Obama supporters are now disappointed after some of his arm-twisted Jewish appointee decisions??? Make’s you think he’s not really in charge (which he isn’t). No it’s the same old, same old filthy (expletive) (racial slur) who are poisoning America, who have murdered thousands of innocent lives on 9-11-01, and are thinking that they are going to get away with it again.
Barack, I view more as a sacrificial lamb, but the sacrifice MUST take place. He had good intentions, but like the Steve Taylor song goes, “a politician next door, swore, he’d set the Washington arena on fire, thinks he’ll gladiate them, but they’re gonna make him a liar.”
So, I’m stuck here in Mississippi, and I’ll need bus fare or some way of getting to Washington. I don’t own a gun, so maybe someone can give me one. And I’ll need a leak in the secret service to get a close up shot, somewhere close to the podium, since I’ve never fired a gun, so I need to get an easy shot off. Wattdysay fellas? Any help?
You all know we can’t live with the jewscum any longer, dont cha? You got a better solution? I’m all ears.
Also, according to the Affidavit, on Jan. 15, 2009, Christopher posted the following:
RE: ok we have 6 days until my Presidential Assasination.
Why is your heart so wicked?
I can get away with actually murdering Barack Obama OR just threatening to do it.
The Affidavit also sets forth the following post which was entered today, Jan. 16, 2009:
To those who still think I’m a nobody, who antagonize me, who seek for my capture and arrest…..
I wll have you found, arrested and executed, if you push me too far.
Christopher previously posted possible threats against President George W Bush saying, “let’s hope this time they don’t hang up on, like last time when I threatened to kill gw and called them to tell.”
