Burnt cat found in Mpls. park being viewed as threat against Obama (Iced Tea Can found next to it)
Star Tribune ^ | August 13, 2012 | PAUL WALSH

Posted on 08/13/2012 7:51:44 PM PDT by AmonAmarth

A threat to President Obama in the form of a burnt cat staked to a tree stump drew law enforcement officers from several city and federal agencies to a south Minneapolis park before dawn on Monday.

The cat in Longfellow Park was staked with a handheld American flag on a small stick, according to a federal law enforcement official. Standing next to the cat was an Obama/Biden 2012 lawn sign, the official said.

No arrests have been made.

Obama's official schedule Monday shows him leaving Chicago for Omaha and then on to Boone, Iowa, about 230 miles south of Minneapolis.

The park's main building is also an election polling place. Tuesday is a primary election day in Minneapolis and elsewhere in the state.

Luther Ranheim, who lives about 4 blocks from the park was walking his puppy and came upon the scene a little less than two hours after the cat's discovery. "I was like what the hell is that?" he said. "It made me sick to my stomach."

Park Board spokeswoman Dawn Sommers said the cat was found by one of the park's employees.

Agencies that responded to the threat included the Secret Service, the FBI, the federal Department of Homeland Security, officers from the Minneapolis Park Police force and Minneapolis Police Department.

The federal official said there are no surveillance cameras in south end of Longfellow Park, located just north of E. 35th Street and about a half-mile east of Hiawatha Avenue.

The Democrat cat obviously was so distressed that Ryan was chosen for VP that he self-immolated in protest.

“On the stump along with the cat, with the flag’s stick staked through its throat, were an iced tea can and a cat food tin, the federal official said. There was no note, the official added”

Sounds like a false flag by some SEIU goon to whip up sympathy for potentate Obama.

Wow. I wonder how long it will take to rectify that situation? They should put a MAJOR effort into this one. All levels of law enforcement from the feds on down.

Yeah, that Obama/Biden 2012 poster is definitely a felony and should be promptly incinerated!

Poor kitty! Had to be a liberal that did it. A conservative would never, ever to such a terrible thing.

Now on to the important task at hand. It’s time we place a ban on matches and lighters!

Cats typically do not leave notes.

When you’re a pompous azz with a Mt. Rushmore sized ego even a defaced campaign bumper sticker is a “threat”.

Maybe obama is seeking a feline menu for a change, and he was interrupted while preparing dinner.

No, but there was a tape recorder beside the cat. When they pushed the play button a voice said, "Let's play a game!"

Obviously a democrat

Clue 1: a conservative, would never do this to a cat

Clue 2: a conservative would never disrespect the flag in this manner

Yeah, they are really stretching to make this some sort of perceived threat to hussein.

What I want to know is, is it legal to put campaign posters/signs in city parks? Why was that sign there in the first place?

Now this sounds like a job for Eric the Corrupt. He specializes in hate crimes (Fast and Furious, New Black Panthers, etc.) and knows their methods in detail. I suspect that he could get to the bottom of it withing a decade or two. Might need to assign 200 - 300 Secret Service Agents, DOJ Lawyers and FBi Agents full time to assist in a crime of this magnitude.

Sounds more like a Treyvon follower to me. The can of tea next to the dead cat. I knew some young blacks who loved torturing cats and setting them on fire was their way of getting their rocks off.

If this is any party it would be the SOBs. That is the Son’s of Bammy.

Now if it had been a flaming turd on top of a koran - then I could see the connection.

But wait. Wasn’t there a security camera there somewhere? What about those two loose German shepards that were seen in the area around the same time?

“There was no note”

Not even an application for a National Endowment for the Arts grant? Sounds like the sort of thing they fund all the time.

"On the stump along with the cat, with the flag’s stick staked through its throat, were an iced tea can and a cat food tin....”

"Cat food tin" is one of the most common smear phrases of Paul Ryan used by the leftists (e.g., "Paul Ryan's Cat Food Budget", "Paul Ryan will have us all eating out of cat food tins with his extremist budget", etc.). The timing of this act, so close to the VP announcement is unlikely to be a mere coincidence. I suggest the authorities look for different suspects...

Poor cat never did anything to hurt anyone. Stupid sadists.

Not sure if the USDA was there but NOAA (the weather service) is ordering bullets.

I’m sure holdup holder will bring all the forces he has at his command to bear on the investigation... they sure aren’t doing anything else.

I can’t for the life of me understand the very deep seated hatred of cats some people have. It is inexplicable.

Ours are sound asleep on their bench on the porch outside my office window.

Yeah, but a guy whose identity I'm not at liberty to disclose told me that cats who commit suicide always do. So the absence of a note is positive proof that Mitt Romney murdered the cat. I know that because I learned how to reason in Professor Reid's logic class.
