D.C. officer investigated for making threats against Michelle Obama
Washington Post ^ | 12 July 2012 | Clarence Williams and Mary Pat Flaherty

Posted on 07/12/2012 3:14:42 PM PDT by moonshot925

During that conversation, the officials said, the officer allegedly said he would shoot the First Lady and then used his phone to retrieve a picture of the firearm he said he would use. It was not immediately clear what type of firearm was allegedly shown.

An officer overheard the alleged threat and reported it to a police lieutenant at the Division, who immediately notified superiors, the officials said.

“We received an allegation that inappropriate comments were made. We are currently investigating the nature of those comments,” D.C. police spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump said in an e-mail. She declined to discuss the matter further.

“...said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to give details of the investigation”.

“It was not immediately clear where the alleged conversation took place or exactly how many officers took part in the conversation”.

“It was not immediately clear what type of firearm was allegedly shown”.

“Police officials declined to identify the officer. Officials from the U.S. Attorney’s office declined comment”.

” police union chief Kristopher Baumann said he did not have details on the matter”.

” A Secret Service spokesman declined to provide further details...”

Very informative story. at least you got it out first, thats all that really matters.

I think we can all agree that threatening to shoot the first lady isn’t cool.

Although talking about the first family is such a way isn’t cool, saying you’d like to do something is not the same as a threat. For an example, for me to say I would like to jump a woman’s bones - is not the same as threatening to do it.

And, in this day and age of technology, and sophisticated Crime Prevention and Investigation, it would never happen. HAVING SAID THAT, don't be surprised if a "rumor" like this is the October Surprise in order to get the sympathy vote for the Prez and his family. The Obama Chicago Thug-brigade will do and say anything to try and keep him in the White House for 4 more years so he can finish destroying this nation. They're not above "feigning" a "kidnap" attempt or God knows what-all. I'm telling you, these people are E-V-I-L!!!

There is a rumor that came out, from some whistleblower, OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO STAGE ‘REICHSTAG’ EVENT AS TRIGGER FOR MARTIAL LAW, DHS SOURCE WARNS.
Don’t know if it was posted here, sounded outlandish, but everyone had the same question. Would they really go that far?

This morning while sipping my coffee and add some new tin foil to my helmet, I thought about this scenario played out. If someone were to harm the first lady, it would accomplish several goals of this administration. Primarily, it would distract from from his record and the state of the union. It would also garner him a lot of sympathy and allow him great latitude by much of the public. “You’d grab guns too, if your wife had been shot”... et al. For these reasons, she should watch her supposed trusted friends. Does anyone doubt that such sacrifices would be made for the “greater good”? Maybe I’m just cynical, but I don’t put anything past them.

If he DID say something to this effect out loud, he’s a dumbass.

And that’s a big “if”. I’m calling bullsh*t on this one - another media-inspired distraction to take the attention off the economy and the dismal job their golden boy is doing.

Obviously.That's why a desperate Osama Obama campaign might be so tempted to set up something like this.Rush has said,and I'm willing to wager that he's correct,that Osama's campaign is gonna be scorched earth from start to finish.

It sounds like his comments are being taken out of context. He’s on her security detail, and he says that if he was going to kill her he’d use a certain gun. Then he shows a picture of the gun. Who does he say this to? Apparently, his fellow officers. Why would a man on security detail for the first lady contemplate a specific danger to her, and discuss his thoughts with other members of her security detail?

"Race card" ops by the Zero campaign? There doesn't seem to be much to the story - yet it lands front and center in the WaPo.

Ulsterman's White House Insider (which can't be posted on FR) has said repeatedly that the Zero campaign was going to launch these kind of operations, especially in regards to assassination threats and fears.

probably just mentioned his interest in voting for mitt, and some democrat decided to claim he said something entirely different.

In any-case I don’t care what he said or didn’t say because whatever it was he not only had the right to say it but he obviously did not say it to her and therefore it could not be a threat either. Might as well have been idle or angry speak. Nobody can take that seriously unless you truly are a jackass.

This is nothing but a ploy to keep local police officers away from the Obamas and replace them with SS officers who like to party hardy.This means that local police should be disempowered from any presidential or 1st lady security detail , or disarmed. Local police are not to be trusted.

This meme has been going on since 2008.It is also characteristic of closing the ranks around a liberal fascist cadre of brown shirts within the Obama SS detail.

See this photo, taken in Chicago , August 4, 2010, as Obama exited a local restaurant, note the SS officer at extreme left covering the Chicago Police Officers side arm as Obama walks by:

US President Barack Obama leaves after having dinner at a local restaurant in Chicago, Illinois, on August 4, 2010. Obama and Michelle consider themselves to be at genuine risk from the general populace due to their arcane policies that take away personal liberty, that they do not trust local police officers to be near them armed.So they circle the wagons like any extremist would do, using only SS officers who are politically vetted to support their fascism.

This article explains it well:
