Prosecutor: Man Threatened To Kill President Obama, School Children

NEW YORK(AP) — An upstate New York man is accused of threatening to kill President Barack Obama and elementary schoolchildren in Saratoga County.

Prosecutors say the U.S. Secret Service and local authorities collaborated to arrest Brent Dickinson of Saratoga Springs.

The county district attorney’s office said Saturday the 33-year-old man “intended to murder” the targets of his threatening messages. They said the U.S. Secret Service intercepted two threatening messages posted by Dickinson on a White House message board Friday.

Dickinson was arraigned in Saratoga Springs City Court on charges of making terroristic threats.

He was taken to city jail after bail was set at $50,000. It wasn’t immediately known Saturday whether he had an attorney.

A message left at a number listed for Dickinson’s possible relatives was not returned Saturday.

    If the man is not outright demented, he’s certainly stupid not to know the repercussions of his threat.
