I will you kill you': Trump supporter arrested as Letitia James and judge get death threats. Raw Story

https://www.rawstory.com/engoron-threats/

Dumb ass sent texts to both A.G. Tish James and Judge Engoron

I want to to give you Letitia James a very fair warning that you are not to permanently steal Donald Trumps (sic) assets or his property," one message to James said. "Furthermore you are not to imprison Donald Trump."

He threatened to "go after you with deadly force" because he owned a "whole wall of deadly weapons."

"Mark my words I will kill you if you even dare to permanently steal Donald Trumps (sic) assets or his property," he allegedly wrote.

The suspect was being held without bail at the Erie County Holding Center. The identity of his attorney was not immediately clear.

********

I didn’t use his name in this post. The man needs to be forgotten as he moves into “The Grey Bar Hotel”
for the next 7 years.

I hope he enjoys his 7 years (sentence) in the New York prison system. He is an example of why Trump needs to be locked up because of the vile lies he spreads to the mentally weak MAGA shits.

I suspect they think some invisible "mantle of invincibility" covers and surrounds them because it comes from trump, or somehow extends from trump's own "mantle of invisibility," and therefore they're entitled to the same invincibility.

Only a few of them are waking up and smelling the coffee, as it were. Too bad it's so few, but our law enforcement folks are playing it WAAAAAAAAAY too timidly, so I guess that's how things develop. S-L-O-W-L-Y, one or two bad guys at a time, justice is done, in miniature. But there are CROWDS of these assholes that still walk free, along with the #1 "golden asshole" they worship. NOTHING'S done to him because of all the misery and crime he's inspired, implied a desire for, and fomented. America NEEDS - DESPERATELY NEEDS - to see proof that crime doesn't pay. No matter who you are or how big/famous/rich/powerful you are (or are perceived to be).

This is America Version 2024. It's the politics of aggressive confrontation, what you can't win in elections or the courts, you try to win with intimidation by sociopaths.

Gone are the relatively halcyon past days of the politics of possibility, and far far gone are the days of the extremes finding compromises in the middle. Gone are the days of realizing democracy is supposed to be self-correcting. You make a mistake with a presidential election and that error only gets 4 years of freedom before he/she is stopped.

The Constitution was written to make radical legal change ratjer harder than easier in the hope that a harder process would prove more thoughtful and moderate, suitable to adjustment by later elections of different representatives open to corrective legislative action.

Now it's "Give me EVERYTHING I want, or face impeachment!!!!!!"

All consider him key to their getting raptured on up to heaven so they'll have a good view of the rest of us getting tortured on earth before we're all cast into hell. Lovely people.

Anyone who attacks their fat slob in any way is the enemy of their god, who is the god of assisted living and can't do anything for himself, that's what the faithful are for. Hence, the death threats.

They all buy! into the messaging and tune out anything that makes them think (cognitive dissonance.)

Same with religions. Same with people that develop a crush/hatred/aversion/etc. on someone or some other group.

Get people to buy into the message and you own them. They'll buy $200 tickets to a senseless game or tithe 10% to a stupid cult. And they can't be convinced otherwise.

A game is only "senseless" if you dont care about sports. By your logic, buying a ticket to a concert or ANY event would also be "senseless". As a matter of fact, a lot of the MAGA crowd now refuse to buy tickets to a LOT of sporting events because they're "woke".
But OTOH, EVERYTHING is wrong with rooting for trump. Or the Dallas Cowboys.......

Maybe if they're getting hosed by his vanity website stock, they'll change their tune, but I wouldn't count on it. Too many of them are in hock up to their eyeballs and only playing billionaire Another tax cut might keep them afloat for a few more years.

who "like the energy of his pep rallies for hate." Their signs and clothing usually are full of obscenities, they love their big gaudy trucks, and they are more than likely to have a lot of military style guns stockpiled at home. You won't find them in church on Sunday with Trump's Born Again, waitin' for the Rapture followers.

Throw in those rich guys who don't give a damn about politics except when it benefits them. Trump certainly does have a talent for attracting very diverse people, though all of them are gullible except for the rich ones.

South of Buffalo, there lies some of the most right-wing territory in the country.
People see "New York" and think, "blue state". Not even close. The rural (dumb shit) areas of New York are as red as any other deep red areas in Texas or Oklahoma. Without New York's cities (NYC, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Albany etc.) New York would be beet red.
It's alarming how red this state is in the rural (dumb shit) areas.

So many places have been “dumbed down” by generations of racist anti education mouth breathers
who get poor quality public education, hate talk media, are worried that the government is gonna
come and get their guns, and/or that Bill Gates wants to follow some auto body repair by tracking
his movements via a micro chip that was put into the C-19 vaccines. These shits will vote against
their own best interests time after time because it feels good to them. We shouldn’t spend 1 dime
or 1 second in trying to get their votes because their brains are cooked and not unless they have a
life changing event death alone will stop their dendrites firing to produce their toxic thoughts.

Btw I forgot the crap they hear from their pastors. I was in North Central Virginia (Woodstock) in
the summer of ‘21 and the linkage between Trump and Christian Evangelicals was scary. Putin’s
installing Trump was meant to divide America and in that he has been successful.

I'm located about 30 west of Rochester on the south shore of Lake Ontario.

There are pockets of blue located throughout the state, usually accompanyi ng college towns, but otherwise.....red, red, red. You know, you've seen it yourself.

He got seven years? I guess that this is long enough, but these sorts of people need to realize that threatening people online is the same as calling someone on the phone, or via a letter, and threatening them. He also needs to get time for being literally too stupid. But, IMHO, these sorts of people end up killing themselves w/ some dumb antic anyways, so no need to worry, they'll do themselves in.
