A Pennsylvania man has been charged with threatening to kill GOP Rep. Eric Cantor in a YouTube Internet Video. Norman Leboon is now in custody. This will get little coverage in the Mainstream Media. They will never admit it's not just those on the Left who get threats:
A 38-year-old Pennsylvania man has been arrested and charged with threatening to kill House Minority Whip Eric Cantor of Virginia, the No. 2 Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives, the Justice Department said Monday.The video the man posted threatening Cantor has been removed from YouTube, but below is a video of the man threatening YouTube employees for having removed his words from the site. It doesn't take long to see he is completely out of his mind:
Norman Leboon of Philadelphia was charged in a two-count complaint with threatening to kill Cantor and his family. Leboon made the threat in a YouTube Internet video sent to Google this month, according to a Justice Department statement.
Neither Cantor nor his family were harmed as a result of the threat, the department said.
"The Department of Justice takes threats against government officials seriously, especially threats to kill or injure others," U.S. Attorney Michael Levy said. "Whether the reason for the threat is personal or political, threats are not protected by the First Amendment and are crimes."
If convicted, Leboon would face a sentence of up to 15 years in prison and a $500,000 fine, according to the Justice Department. . . MORE
