A bipolar man who "prophesied" that Bush may "burn" on a trip to AZ was sentenced to 3 year based on the following:
18 USC Â§ 871 -- which reads, in part:
"...Whoever knowingly and willfully deposits for conveyance in the mail or for a delivery from any post office or by any letter carrier any
letter, paper, writing, print, missive, or document containing any threat to take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict bodily harm upon the President
of the United States, the President-elect, the Vice President or other officer next in the order of succession to the office of President of the
United States, or the Vice President-elect, or knowingly and willfully otherwise makes any such threat against the President, President-elect, Vice
President or other officer next in the order of succession to the office of President, or Vice President-elect, shall be fined under this title or
imprisoned not more than five years, or both."
So, it looks like this guy has about 5 years free rent coming.
