Man accused in Obama threat uses crutches in court


www.examiner.com

DENVER (Map, News) - A Colorado man suspected of making racist threats against Barack Obama limped into federal court on crutches Thursday and was formally advised of a methamphetamine-possession charge against him.

Therin Gartrell, 28, was arrested Sunday, just before the Democratic National Convention in Denver. Authorities said he was pulled over in the suburb of Aurora in a rented truck that contained rifles, a bulletproof vest, wigs and fake IDs, and that Gartrell and two other men had talked about killing Obama.

It looks like these guys were just three racist druggies, but it seems security surrounding Obama is tight. All presidents and presidential nominees get death threats, but somehow it seems Obama is in more danger than many.

The crutches look to be an attempt to show he's disabled and therefore an unlikely suspect.
