Your Friday Afternoon Florida Report

A man in Winter Haven, Florida, was arrested Wednesday after deputies said he threatened to shoot and kill senators who oppose Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination.

James Royal Patrick, Jr., 53, faces felony charges of written threats to kill or injure, according to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office in Central Florida. Patrick’s arrest came at 4 p.m. after a tip Wednesday morning about a handful of public Facebook posts, in which Patrick said “I will be ready to kill” senators who voted against Kavanaugh with a sniper rifle that had “plenty of ammo,” deputies said.

    the ones you have to worry about are the ones who are smart enough not to telegraph what they’re going to do on social media.

    He should have learned from the Leftist to do these things anonymously.
