As the debate over health care escalates, law enforcement are becoming "increasingly" concerned over threats and violent protesters target President Obama.
The Associated Press reports the Secret Service "is investigating a man who authorities said held a sign reading ‘Death to Obama’ outside a town hall meeting" held by Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD) in Hagerstown. Authorities detained the unidentified, 51-year-old man after people called 911 due to the sign, which also declared, “Death to Michelle and her two stupid kids."
Also on Thursday, Los Angeles police officers used tear gas and tasers to apprehend the man in the red Volkswagen above who made numerous threats against the President at the federal building.
Earlier this week, a gun was brought to a New Hampshire townhall meeting, which apparently was legal in that state. At a Missouri townhall meeting held by Sen. Claire Mccaskill, another protester violently ripped apart a photo of civil rights icon Rosa Parks. All this to prevent something so threatening as universal health care?
