Veteran arrested for threatening Obama

After reading the article here at Military.com, I can understand the viewpoint of the Secret Service taking this as an honest threat.  I mean they pretty much have to take all these “threats” seriously, don’t they? 

But think about it for a minute.  The guy is a vet, was in the Navy for four years, and was a former New York City police officer and a fire captain.  And to top it all off, he is 78 years old!  Hardly the age conducive to prowling the grounds of the White House wouldn’t you think?  Might he just possibly have made the statement to the V.A. nurse in jest?  Sick joke, or in bad taste it might be but, it still could be one, right? 

And I’m sure after these first two years of the current Prez, this Veteran wasn’t the only one to have vocalized his thoughts on this Administration’s Leader, nor will he be the last.  As for the guns, he was ex-military and a former New York City police officer.  It would be odd for a man of his training and background not to own some guns, wouldn’t you think?  As for the mental evaluation . . . good idea.  Better than shooting the man down in the future.  If he needs help, get it for him!  Just my opinion.
