Ohio teen, Alyssa Douglas, took to her Twitter account during President Obama’s DNC speech, calling for his assassination and referring to him as “piece of sh*t.” The teen’s tweets instantly drew criticism from her followers, as students retweeted — meaning they shared her message on their Twitter account — the message and criticized her for posting it. One Twitter user asked the teen, “What is wrong with you that you have so much hatred so early? You need help.” Another Twitter user called for the teen’s arrest saying, “Arrest this lunatic like ASAP. Have fun in jail Alyssa RT.”
The teen’s tweet prompted the Clinton Massie School District, where Douglas is a high school student, to have a meeting with Douglas and her parents. The Secret Service is also investigating the threat, and the findings will be reported to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Southern District of Ohio.
As of recent, there have been a slew of death threats targeting the President. In March, 33-year-old Brent Dickinson was arrested in New York after being accused of attempting to assassinate President Barack Obama. He was charged with two counts of making terroristic threats, and his bail is set at $100,000. Last month, four men (active duty and former U.S. military members) were charged with malice murder, felony murder, criminal gang activity, aggravated assault and using a firearm while committing a felony after killing two people to keep their plans to assassinate President Obama and take over the government secret. The domestic terrorist organization named F.E.A.R., short for Forever Enduring Always Ready, spent at least $87,000 buying guns and bomb components.
