Man charged with threat against Obama in Utah

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Federal prosecutors have charged a man with making threats against President Barack Obama after he allegedly told a bank employee in Utah he was on a mission to kill the president.

The Salt Lake Tribune reported on its Web site Thursday that Daniel James Murray allegedly made the remark to a teller at a bank in St. George on May 27 as he withdrew $13,000 from an account.

Murray's whereabouts are unknown. A court affidavit says Murray is from New York and has recently been in California, Utah, Georgia, Oklahoma and possibly Texas.

Even from the threads on ATS, there does seem to be a huge dislike and distrust of the President. Not unlike the last President George W. Bush.

But to announce to a bank teller that you plan to kill the President seems not only stupid but crazy. However the
guy seems to be a transient and a gun owner so it's no wonder the secret service is taking this as a serious threat.

You would have to be absolutely stupid for this. The secret service are very dangerous people, and they have the president well protected. I am not sure what to think about these things, as they seem absolutely stupid, to go round telling that.

But bit of advice for anyone here, the president is totally protected and do not ever be stupid enough to even think about this stuff.

Obama is your leader and if you do not like him your just going to have to wait until 4 or 8 years.

The majority of Registered Gun Owners are sane & very responsible with their firearms.

Any criminal on the street can get an unregistered/stolen gun for cash on the spot.

I, personally would be more afraid of the person who illegally obtained a firearm, than the one who obtained one legally.

Mind you the dud is still a tard for saying that to the bank teller!

I wonder how serious he was - it could of just been an angry comment in passing rather that a deep sentiment that he really wanted to follow through.

Back when Georgie boy was prez I can remember being very drunk in a pub in town trying to teach another couple of guys the 'Lets get together and kill george bush song' by Rich Hall - now I wonder how the secret service took that one! - I wish I could find it on youtube and embed it - but it's gone from the search results

i agree with the first two paragraphs.....the last one should state

obama is your puppet this term...if you do not like him too bad......you can either vote in another puppet next term who you have the choice of naively thinking will be any different (tempting.......lol)....or you can accept the reality that we don't really have a choice........makes the naive option even more enticing......= a joke

Sorry, your reference completely eludes me. Could you explain?

I read a (short) article yesterday.

Apparantly, he's no where to be found, and this certainly raises an eyebrow. Especially the fact he withdrew $13,000, and made that that bold statement.
He's either very stupid, or very determined.
Maybe BOTH! Yikes.


S&F!. I would like to know how this turns out.

Having 13 grand and bad intentions makes anyone a possible gun owner..

The fact that he may have registered guns is just a sell factor..

Sorry about the dupe thread


Here are the three related articles on the topic I posted in the dupe:

abcnews.go.com...
www.transworldnews.com...
www.sltrib.com...


I hope they find him soon, whether he was serious or not, it sounds like he could use some help.

Gracias, JKM for the update. Somehow I don't think he was a serious threat; just someone looking for his 15min of fame. He got it.

It's from a movie called In the Line of Fire with Clint Eastwood and John Malkovich. Malkovich plays a would be assasin who kills a bank teller and her roomate because she asked too many questions...Good movie tho IMO.

On topic tho, I'm glad they caught that guy!

Well, If someone had threatened my life, I would hope the authorities were acting vigorously. And I would encourage them to do so. I'll bet you would too.

I also would take certain steps to answer a threat to me personally or my family.

From one of the articles posted above:


Murray entered Zion's First National Bank in St. George, Utah on May 19, to open a savings account with an $85,000 check, according to a criminal complaint filed in federal court in Salt Lake City today


So what I want to know is, where did this guy get a check for 85,000 dollars? Who was it from?

I didn't ask what you would

"hope"

or what you would

"encourage them to do"


or

"what steps you would take to protect your family"

I am saying we would not have received the attention & protection the messiah has, ok? We are not all equal, nor will we ever be, regardless of the identity politics and nonsense this man spouts

Being disdainful because he gets an elevated level of protection due to his position, doesn't make any sense.
