"The user posted other tweets since then, allegedly making additional threats, including that he was "laser-focused on thinking about ways to kill [Speaker of the House] Nancy Pelosi," "[it would be cool to] drive 80 mph into a million people," and that "...if a cop pulls you over for something minor like speeding or a busted tail light, you can just threaten his life and he'll let you go with no trouble.""

This is not an intelligent man. He probably struggles to boil water in a microwave.

I read that and my brain literally short circuited trying to parse those words

Is he white?
Better let him go like the lap top girl.
Wouldn't look good keeping him.

Yeah, that is sarcasm.

You best send a message right now that this shiat is a one way street and a dead end.
And a short one.

Skrrt should go through anyone else's mind thinking of this shiat.

This article reads like the story of when my uncle supposedly caught a 9lb large mouth. I want to believe him, but common sense gets in the way. The prosecutor clearly wants people to take this seriously, but even the twit tweeting twat didn't.

Means? No
Motive? Maybe
Opportunity? Ehhhh? I have my doubts.

Generally you don't have to demonstrate means to convict someone of making a terroristic threat

FoxNews and Republicans were pushing the idea that you can kill someone that steals or damages your property during the summer riots.

It isn't a far walk from "taxes are theft" to thinking you can kill a "tax and spend liberal".

Our conservative media is the most dangerous product of our time.

Sometimes these guys remind me of 10 year old me. I was gonna build an underground lair in my back yard. I had a plan all drawn up, even knew enough about AC to be able to safely run a conduit from the garage.

Then I got a shovel and started digging in the red clay soil. "It's hot and almost time for Dark Shadows. This can wait."

It's not dangerous to you when A) you're seen as being on their side. B) You have armed security details. C)  The morons who believe you will never get within 20 miles of you and your family or 1,000 miles of you and your money.

I actually got a letter from the IRS citing a discrepancy on my 2018 taxes a few weeks ago.  It was a mistake regarding how RSUs were reported on one of my 1099s.  I guess it's pretty common.  The computer just spits out an error if it's not clear on the W-2 where the 1099 came from.

Hmm... he is immediately snatched up and facing 10 years in prison for using social media to threaten destruction of a federal building. How is that any different from what our abysmal failure of an ex-president did, what with the way he orchestrated the trashing of the Capitol building and the threat to Pence's safety (if not life)?

Trump should be sporting the matching jumpsuit-and-face-tan ensemble.

That's not "without warning". The narration-track, and the visual of the sugar being poured are quite good warnings that something is about to happen.

Well Americans, sure.
But Asians are generally pretty thin.  They have much less mass, so you'd get much further. Plus you get a car from the 70s with a solid metal bumper and drive in reverse so you don't damage the engine.  I bet you could get a large percentage of that million.

All you wannabe rebels, you should focus more:

1. If you are complaining about the contents of the tax code, you want to attack the Capitol.

2. If you are complaining about the way the tax code is administered, you want to attack the IRS.

Think carefully before going after both because you're liable to be wasting a lot of energy on somebody who isn't the source of your problem. It's not the IRS's fault you can't deduct the expenses of your grow op, and it's not Pelosi's fault that the computer glitched and delayed your refund.

Excuse me, somebody's pounding on my door.
