DENVER -- "Federal authorities Tuesday downplayed what they said were threats made by a pair of [white] men arrested here over the weekend possessing rifles, sniper scopes and an alleged desire to kill Barack Obama."
These authorities claimed that "...the pair's rants while on a methamphetamine binge do not meet the legal standard for filing charges, despite their possession of rifles and sniper scopes." "[Notwithstanding that] ...many questions had not been answered, including why the men had high-powered weapons, body armor, two-way radios, wigs and camouflage gear. It was also unclear why they decided to base themselves in a suburban Hyatt hotel where they believed -- erroneously -- Obama was staying."
"Rev. Edward Pinkney, a Missionary Baptist assistant pastor in Benton Harbor [MI], was sentenced June 26  in a Berrien County court to 3-10 years on a probation violation for quoting, in King James, several curses from the Book of Deuteronomy in an opinion piece for The People's Tribune. Judge Dennis Wiley ruled that it was a "true threat."
Here was Rev. Pinkney's "true threat," verbatim: "Judge Butzbaugh, it shall come to pass; if thou continue not to hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God to observe to do all that is right; which I command thee this day, that all these Curses shall come upon you and your family, curses shalt be in the City of St. Joseph and Cursed shalt thou be in the field, cursed shall come upon you and your family and over take thee; cursed shall be the fruit of thy body. The Lord shall smite thee with consumption and with a fever and with an inflammation and with extreme burning. They the demons shall Pursue thee until thou persist."
