A Colorado man has been indicted on charges of threatening to kill President Barack Obama and blow up the Mall of America in suburban Minneapolis.

A federal grand jury in Denver handed up the indictment Tuesday against 20-year-old Timothy Ryan Gutierrez of Cortez.

The U.S. attorney's office said Thursday Gutierrez isn't yet in custody. Gutierrez has no listed phone number and it's not known if he has an attorney.

Sounds like an idiot who doesn’t realize you cannot threaten bodily harm to a U.S. President.

Unfortunately, blowing up stuff (by measure of events worldwide) is a specialty of islamokazis.

He emailed the FBI? Very bizarre.

Let me guess... He’s pissed because Obama hasn’t paid the guy’s mortgage, bought him a new car, etc.

I’m sure he’ll be tied to the GOP by the MSM, somehow....

Maybe he used the term "DROP UP THE BOMB" or something.

Sometimes the fibbies are totally humorless and devoid of knowledge of popular literary references.

Did Roger Staubach and Drew Pearson already lay waste to area in 1975? ;)

True story, in 1997 I went to Bloomington MN on a business trip. I wanted to see the old stadium, didn’t realize that the MOA was built on the old grounds until I saw homeplate at the MOA.

It would be very difficult to blow the entire mall.

Completely and utterly UNACCEPTABLE! Imagine all of the innocent people that would be injured or killed at Mall of America!

Yep. Haven’t ever been there but I hear it’s enormous.

After watching (on TV) the islamokazis operate in Iraq, one can imagine what they’d try though.

From another news source.....

“Federal court records also say he emailed the FBI with a threat against the mall: “I have rigged 40 pounds of C4 [a moldable plastic explosive] ... and my favorite TNT to 7 cars outside the Mall of America.”

Goofball...

My uncle hit the last MLB homerun at the Met. I never imagined I would get an opportunity to brag about that. Thanks

The good news is that since no one can afford to go shopping, only tourists from Japan and China would have been hurt.

We should just explain to the President that this man isn't really a threat to him, and that he has more civil rights as a supposed terrorist than the President does, so chill out.

Why didn’t we hear about all the threats made against President Bush or other Presidents?

Here’s more on the MOA.......

“What are you waiting for? You have 48 hours, remember?” the email said. “And one more thing, that I have forgotten to mention I have rigged 40 pounds of C4, He and my favorite, TNT, to 7 cars outside the Mall of America. Good luck, thank you and God bless the you know the rest. Time is wasting.”
