In an ill-advised fit of blind rage, Harrigan took to Facebook to voice his stance on the future Trump presidency, but rather than providing reasoned, sane arguments to support his feelings, Harrigan simply vowed to murder Trump instead.
Harrigan's violent rhetoric was quickly preserved with screenshots and rapidly gained attention on Reddit, where it was brought to the attention of PacketSled. Harrigan, as you might expect, performed one of the quickest reversals in the history of mankind, claiming that it was all a joke and a misunderstanding.
Today, PacketSled issued another statement, this time announcing the resignation and departure of Harrigan:

Tech CEO who vowed to murder Donald Trump with a sniper rifle forced to resign

Well you shouldn't be openly threatening to kill people online under your real identity at least lol. Least of all the POTUS. Well, well, justice is served!

Yes, full of brains, that CEO.

Why hasn't he been arrested?

I would assume he was investigated for his comments and found to not be a threat.

Not the sharpest knife in the drawer. Makes you wonder how he rose to the position of CEO at a tech company.

Lol, what a [snipped]!

I don't imagine for a minute he actually meant to shoot the Trump, so calls for his arrest, meh...but funny as # he's screwed it for himself.
Wonder if he was drunk when he posted it...that's usually when I get spanked by mods.

Justice will be served when he's charged with a felony.

I don't think we would have had to worry anyways, because he'd probably have try and "borrow" a rifle from one of his "horrible right wing Trump lover" neighbors in order to do it.

Bit dramatic don't you think?
He's destroyed his career for being a stupid [snipped] with a big mouth...and I'm sure the relevant agencies have looked at this and dismissed him as any threat.

It would appear that the relevant agencies disagree with you though.

threatening a President is a felony. Obama has had people prosecuted for it himself.

I don't think it's being dramatic.

If someone with great opportunity and financial wherewithal...announces on Twitter to thousands of followers that he plans on killing you and/or your family...would you be content with the FBI telling you he said he didn't really mean it?

I don't know about you...but I'd want the guy locked up tight.

Again though, it would appear that the relevant agencies have dismissed it as a threat or crime worth punishing.
You can bleat about it but it doesn't change the fact that the feds have let this slide.
Unlucky if you disagree with them.

Now he will get a first hand personal view of how great the Obama economy is while he`s looking for another job,although I don`t believe there are a lot job openings for tech company CEO so, he`ll probably have to settle for one of obamas burger flipping jobs.

Wow. That's a career ending meltdown. The Secret Service will definitely be "bringing it." I guess he could always fall back on Plan B which I can only assume is authoring the book, "How to Ruin Your Life with a Few Facebook Posts"

Joking or not, this CEO deserves everything that's coming his way.... He represents a company, a brand and he jeopardized the careers of all the loyal people that worked for his company... When you lead, you need to 'lead by example', I'm sure he said that tongue in cheek, but still, VERY VERY stupid... Stupid to the point any executive board should say to themselves "do we really want this guy running this company??"

Sucks to be that guy I guess. The fact that someone like that somehow made CEO, doesn't make me want to go out and invest in that company any time soon.... That's like worldclass stupid.
