A Dearborn man was sentenced to 41 months in federal prison today after his conviction by a jury in September of extortion for threatening to kill DTE Energy employees over the phone, U.S.
During these telephone conversations, Mustafa threatened the employees by saying “Do you want to get shot in the face over a couple of dollars,” and “It’s going to be another Sandy Hook,” - referring to the mass shooting that took place in Newtown, Ct., last year.
Mustafa also used racially charged language, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
A threat is a threat is a threat.
I thought that was a slap on the wrist kind of thing (still taken seriously though).
And shouldn't a mental health component be added to that?

You can't use what he "could" have done to sentence him...
Mustafa threatened the employees by saying “Do you want to get shot in the face over a couple of dollars,”
That is NOT specific enough to be considered a true threat insofar as a clear and present danger.
“It’s going to be another Sandy Hook,” -
