Christopher Castillo arrested for death threat against President Obama
Christopher Castillo Arrested After Threatening To Kill Obama On Facebook
A Florida man was arrested this November after posting threatening messages about President Barack Obama on Facebook. When Secret Service agents came to question 28-year-old Christopher Castillo of Melbourne, FL about his violent comments, The Smoking Gun reports that the situation quickly deteriorated.
On Nov. 1, Castillo wrote the following on Facebook, apparently in response to Obama's views on health care:
That’s the last straw, if he gets re-elected I’m going to hunt him down and kill him watch the life disappear from his eyes.Threatening the U.S. president's life is never taken lightly. After a tip-off from a concerned citizen, Secret Service agents arrived at Castillo's Melbourne home on Nov. 8 to investigate his intentions behind the Facebook post.
