Man Arrested For Threatening Obama’s Life
Federal authorities in Florida are holding a man accused of threatening to assassinate Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.
The man, Raymond Hunter Geisel, was ordered held without bail at a Thursday court hearing.
The Secret Service says Geisel made the threat while training to be a bail bondsman in Miami in late July. A search of Geisel’s SUV and hotel room uncovered a loaded handgun, knives, dozens of rounds on ammunition, boy armor, and a machete. The SUV was also wired with emergency lights.
Geisel claims he’s originally from Bangor, Maine. He said he made no threat against either Obama or the president.
Say some prayers.
