Pothead Tried to Shoot Obama
Fox ^ | 5/2/13 | ap

Posted on 05/02/2013 4:56:04 PM PDT by Nachum

WASHINGTON (AP) — An Idaho man charged with attempting to assassinate President Barack Obama by shooting at the White House practiced with his weapon for six months and may have been upset about the country’s marijuana policy, prosecutors said in a newly filed court document.

Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez is currently awaiting trial for the 2011 shooting, which didn’t injure anyone but left more than five bullet marks on the executive mansion. Prosecutors filed a 14-page court document Tuesday that adds additional detail about Ortega-Hernandez, who allegedly shot at the White House the night of Nov. 11 while the president and first lady were away.

Ortega-Hernandez, 22, has pleaded not guilty to the attempted assassination charge and to other charges.

In the document, prosecutors said Ortega-Hernandez “expressed anger towards the government regarding the continued criminalization of marijuana,” which they said he acknowledged smoking and claimed makes people more intelligent.

He is racist because he clearly does not like minorities.

One pot head shooting at another. What’s not to like? Bullet damage to the White House is inexcusable!

“He acknowledged smoking and claimed makes people more intelligent.”

Evidently not when it involves ballistics or the legal ramifications of assassination.

This kid took a potshot at the white house and got as far as PA. Say what you will but that’s quite a feat in itself.

The plan was to abandon the car in DC, call it in stolen and take a freight train back to talk to cops in Idaho who would definitely come asking about the car. The only reason he was caught is a person who takes photos of trains as a hobby happened to be FBI and noticed him in a photo.

is it still considered an assassination attempt if 0bama wasn’t in the zone?

would the same charge apply if someone threw a rock thru the window of his Chicago gift house?

marijuana,” which they said he acknowledged smoking and claimed makes people more intelligent.
- Ortega-Hernandez, 21, who has described himself as the second-coming of Jesus

- Ortega-Hernandez fired the assault weapon from his car, a black Honda Accord, and then fled on foot after he crashed it,

- Even though Obama and his wife were in San Diego at the time of the incident, the grand jury indicted Ortega-Hernandez on a charge of attempted assassination, punishable by up to life in prison upon conviction.

Yes but if someone actually accomplished that, we would have an instant martyr.

Not guilty. Can’t assasinate someone that’s not even there - on the other hand, he’s just a poor misunderstood minority trying to do the jobs that Americans won’t do???????

“Evidently not when it involves ballistics or the legal ramifications of assassination. “

Or the not getting caught part, too.

I’ve used Mac since the 80’s. Did graphics in advertising and later my home business. Worked well for me.
