Google has lots of entries about the incident.
A Bedfordshire Police spokesman said: "The individual sent an email to the White House full of abusive and threatening language.
"We were informed by the Metropolitan Police and went to see him. He said, 'Oh dear, it was me'."
Officers will take no criminal action."
Jim Croce sang...
You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Jim...
And you certainly don't make threats against the President (my addition, not Jim Croce's)
This is not about Freedom of Speech. This is about threatening others. No criminal charges
have been lodged against the punk. His presence in the USA is not wanted. So, he stays home.
I'm sorry, but I can't get excited about someone who claims he was so drunk that he doesn't remember
what he wrote, but when the Bedfordshire Police knock on his door, he says, "Oh dear, it was me." That sounds
like a case of "selective memory" to me.
Have we forgotten what happened in Brazil a few years ago when Americans were accused of "giving the finger"?
How about how Brazilian newspapers tried and convicted the crew of the small American plane that crashed into
a Brazilian plane over the Amazons about 2006? Slowly the truth came out about how bad things were in the
aviation industry, didn't it? In RGS, I remember seeing signs in the post office reminding me not to hurt
the feelings of the postal employees in the event of gross incompetence, theft, or just a bad hair day.
Freedom of Speech is one thing, making threats is another.
