An Edwardsville man posted on Facebook that he wanted to assassinate President Donald Trump, according to federal authorities.

Joseph Lynn Pickett was charged with threatening the president of the United States on June 15.


Wow, surprised none of our residents Fanboys posted this as, once again, PROOF that the left is crazy and wants a civil war.

I know the first thing people will say: Crazy Liberal, Loony left, etc. Is he, or is he just NUTS?

Well, after posting a serious of very disturbing messages that seems like he wanted to get arrested, he is now jailed without bond, which is a good thing. Dude's nuts. Also, he seems to own medical bills around $150k, has been unemployed since February, has been receiving food stamps, and he father supports him. Typical liberal.

Also, police have been called to his house NINETEEN (19) times over the years, including suicide threats and aggravated assault. Jesus.


Before living in Edwardsville, Pickett lived in Troy. Police responded to Pickett’s home on Webster Street 19 times between 1999 and 2007 for various calls including suicide threats and aggravated assault.

In July 2007, police took Pickett into custody because he was standing in the street and screaming. Officers brought him to the police station, where he took a swing at an officer. Pickett missed, but was charged with two counts of disorderly conduct, aggravated assault and property damage.



Joseph L. Pickett, 45, did not vote in either the primary or general elections in 2016. In 2008, he only voted in the primary, and took a Republican ballot. He took a Democratic ballot in the 1992 primary.


Now that doesn't mean much, simply taking a R primary ballot, I'll admit.


“Honestly am I really going to have to kill trump before our fine Government (the jack booted thugs they are) actually takes me into custody for threatening to assassinate President Donald Trump?” Pickett wrote. “I mean he sold our country to The Russians. He is a Benedict Arnold but hey the (expletive) is our President even though he needs a blade in his neck. And you dumb, asses who stick up for him...who’s gonna protect you when someone like me comes t (sic) take you out.”




I'd say the guy is just NUTS, er, is actually mentally ill. Why? Because:

Link2

Loony liberal, or just plain Loon?

Mental illness is a serious problem in this country.

Sounds to me like he is using it as an out to get away from all of his responsibilities.

I mean if he's convicted and sentenced, he could be taken care (by the State) of for quite some time.

the guy is an idiot - but they must have actually thought he might go through with it (or just wanted to make an example out of him) if they tracked him down like that.

So you call us out if we point at the lunatics but secretly you want us to call them out to make fun of us. Wow. You people are so far gone i don't think there is a way for you to ever coming back from that. Good riddance to that guy btw. You seriously need to take a chill pill. The situation is messing with your head.

Well based upon his post, it would seem that he has been indoctrinated into the views the radical left MSM have been peddling.

That would make him a violent extremist and that is exactly what TPTB are going for, we have seen plenty of examples of this as of late.

Just another loser who isn't capable of making his own way in this world.

Was probably a huge burden to his family his entire life, and now he'll wind up with the best medical treatment money can by for the rest of his life- and it's on the house.

The house being us, of course.
Maybe this was his plan all along.

You are right about our way out of the mess.

However what we are witnessing is some high level psychological manipulation being employed through the media and the rest of hollyweird to radicalize elements of the left that are too naive to know they are being manipulated.

Given the narrative we have seen since Trump won, it would be impossible to leave politics out of a nutjob screaming about assassination.

You people?


The situation is messing with your head.


Not really.

I just find it funny how some people will rationalize another viewpoint when it's comes from "you people" and when the narrative has slightly changed.

Thanks for confirming that.




 

ETA:

But yes, I am making fun of "you people."

They have to arrest him. He threatened the President of the US.

More than once.

It does sound like he might be desperate, but also given his history he has some serious issues.

Yes you people. You could've posted this story without the jabs at the Trump supporters but you didn't. This tells me that you made a conscious decision and are fully aware of the fact that the OP could trigger a certain response. Good job.

Thanks.

Yes, it was a conscious decision how I framed the OP.

Because it would have been framed the other way had others gotten to it first.

The f#ck? ATS is not part of any comeptition or are you just eager to gather stars and flags at all costs. Some threads that i read lately are seriously suggesting that the OP's suffer from heatstroke.

You are exactly spot on!

People forget that under Obama, legislation was made to make propaganda legal? Thus we see the Corporate run media, spewing forth lie after lie and we see the violence that is being created because of it?????

Yea, this is MKULTRA squared!
