You won’t see this making many headlines…
A Tennessee Obama supporter was convicted of threatening to murder Sherif Joe Arpaio and his family. Adam Eugene Cox was arrested in January in connection with threats against Arpaio and his family.
World Net Daily reported:
A Tennessee man described as an Obama “fanatic” has been convicted of threatening to kill Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his family, possibly in connection with the lawman’s investigation into the president’s eligibility for office.
Adam Eugene Cox, 33, of Knoxville, was arrested Jan. 27 in connection with graphic online threats that came to light last October.
Cox’s threats included: “I plan to kill Arpaio first. He will be filled with a thousand bullet holes before the year is out. I promise you this. He won’t f**k with Obama. He will be buried 10 feet under and his whole family will be murdered along with him.”
Authorities say Cox’s postings indicate – and his own mother confirms – that Cox is a “fanatical supporter” of Obama, and Arpaio’s ongoing investigation into the legitimacy of the president’s purported birth certificate may have been the reason behind the threat to kill the sheriff.
As WND reported March 1, Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse announced there is probable cause indicating the document released by the White House last April that is claimed to be Obama’s original, long-form birth certificate is actually a forgery.
