MADISON, Wis. -
Federal agents said they have arrested an elderly Wisconsin man after he threatened to shoot President Barack Obama.
According to court records, 81-year-old Elwyn Nels Fossedal stated during a visit to the Richland Center post office on Oct. 15 that, "if President Obama was here I would shoot him right there and kill him right now."
U.S. Secret Service agents interviewed the man at the Richland Center Police Department the next day. They said he refused to recant his threat and made a number of other threats against Obama. Fossedal was charged on Nov. 21 with threatening the president.
But Fossedal faces other charges in connection with actions he is accused of taking with police and family afterward.
According to court documents, after Secret Service agents interviewed Fossedal, Richland Center police took him into protective custody for psychological evaluation due to "comments he had made toward the president and also his inconsistencies with speaking to the agents and to the police officers."

Proper treatment would be impeach, convict for treason, and THEN given the maximum punishment. Old guys should just have to sit back and watch.
It's not a threat, since it was mere speculation dependent upon a situation that didn't exist. Obama wasn't there, so it was rhetoric, not a threat.
Thanks Extremely Extreme Extremist.

Egzacly plus the additional sup plan starting at around 200 per month
Open season on Zimmerman and conservative is completely acceptable, oh, and white babies too.
Forget the sarc tag or just trolling?
Richland, WI man threatens to shoot President
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
Poor old guy. Maybe he finally finished reading the 0Scare bill.
I am fairly sure Mr. Kilborn was not arrested over this...
HA. My sister attended ‘Kill Bush’ parties in the Seattle area. NOTHING was ever done about it.
And, for the record, I have absolutely no contact with her whatsoever. When she needs more money, good luck getting in contact with me, sistah.
Let me guess...he was white? Will they be paying Oprah a visit too? She called for all the old white people in the south to just die...code words for more knockout games on old whitey, IMO.
If he lived in Texas, the Feds would never get a conviction. They probably can’t even get one in Wisconsin outside of Madison.
Did I miss something about white babies?
Figures. Madison, WI. The thought police are everywhere. The guy should have denied everything and said that his statements were taken out of context and that he meant that he would shoot a picture of him with a camera.
I think his statement is an act of free speech and therefore he should not be prosecuted....
Too close to November 22 to be funny.
I know a old geezer here in his 80s who can barely walk who says similar sounding stuff, but not about himself doing it.
Better than a nursing home.
