Barack Obama has a lot of detractors, but 99.9 percent of them don’t actually want to kill the president.
However, 55-year-old Brian D. Dutcher of Tomah, Wisconsin, apparently falls into that .1 percent. Reportedly, he actually wants to assassinate Obama.
Dutcher told a security guard at a La Crosse library, “the usurper is here and if I get a chance I’ll take him out and I’ll take the shot.”
Obama was in Wisconsin pushing his proposal for overtime reform.
The desire to kill POTUS was also expressed on Dutcher Facebook page, where he wrote on June 30, “that’s it! Thursday I will be in La Crosse. Hopefully I will get a clear shot at the pretend president. Killing him is our CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY!”
After being arrested for his remarks and verbal threats against the president, Dutcher walked back his position, telling a detective that “he would not have said what he said if he didn’t intend to carry it out.”
Dutcher remains in police custody, pending an appearance in court.
