Ohio Student Arrested – Told Class He Wanted to Shoot Mitt Romney

Shaquille Brown was arrested on Monday in Ohio after talking about shooting Mitt Romney.

Brown blurted out while working in a group, “can we leave, because Romney is in town and I want to go shoot him.” (Clevescene)

CBS Local reported:

A community college student who was overheard by a teacher saying he wanted to leave class to go shoot Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney during a visit to the state has been arrested and charged with inducing panic, police said.

Shaquille Brown told police after he was taken into custody that he didn’t even have a gun to do such a thing, according to an Elyria Police Department report.

Brown, 19, was charged Wednesday in Elyria Municipal Court with one count of inducing panic, a low-level felony. He said in a brief phone interview that he was just making a joke and never said anything about shooting.

Brown, of Elyria, a two-hour drive north of Columbus, was arrested Monday after a teacher at Lorain County Community College overheard him during a time that students were doing group work in a class, the police report said.

  • FurryGuy

    Yet the American Pravda media complex breathlessly declaims it is Conservatives/the TEA Party that are the violent ones. Uh-huh, yup.

    Racist to the core; isn’t that right MSNBC, CNN, NBC? Oh, it’s a joke, hmmm fancy that….

  • Sarge

    What an idiot; it SHOULD be illegal to be that stupid and walk around free.

    We’d need a prety big jail, though.

  • Not Always Right

    What is just as disturbing is that this person can vote; however, if there is a just God he is actually too stupid to figure out how to vote.

    A huge over reaction IMHO, and I am a right winger.

    Maybe the police are finally waking up to what is going on out there. There are areas in Columbus that if you have a Romney sticker on your car, don`t stop, you will be in danger from these peace looking obama supporters. Yet the same peace loving supporters can going anywhere they want and be in any kind of danger.

    Barry S., you are not a “right winger” or you wouldn’t feel the need to state that
    Plus, we call ourselves conservatives.
    I’m sure you think it is an overreaction but you libs would be the first to be pissing & moaning if he wasn’t arrested for saying the same thing about shooting Obama! Or, would that be OK b/c the criminal is black? What a bunch of ignorants.

    Wow–shocked that anyone actually did anything! Time to start holding people who threaten violence against conservatives (and anyone else for that matter) accountable. The filth that is spewing forth on Twitter is disgusting. There is very limp enforcement if threats are against a conservative. How is that right? For me but not for thee?

    Obama said, “Get in their face” and “If they bring a knife, we bring a gun”
    Never in history has there been this much division. Enough is enough.
    Vote Romney to O’MITT OBAMA and the rest of his gang (and supporters).

    I went back to college 10 years ago to become a teacher. In Idaho, you don’t have to join the union, and I made it very clear in my classes that I was very anti union. One of my professors said, “You can’t fix things from the outside.”

    so I joined as a student and became President of the ISU (Idaho State University) student union (part of the Idaho Education Association).

    While attending a meeting in Boise in the summer of 2003, one of the reps from my home town said in a political discussion, “Anyone who voted for George Bush in 2000 should be shot in the head.” He received a near-standing ovation.

    But someone in a class says something similar and gets arrested.

    Sigh …..

    I’m glad somebody is taking threats like this seriously. The whole class probably knows this guy’s a nut, and the teacher may be the only one with enough sense to recognize that he just might be dangerous.
