An Orlando moonbat was arrested last week after threatening to hunt down the local police chief and his family “like dogs.”
The Orlando Sentinel reported:

A Melbourne Beach man upset by the Trayvon Martin shooting investigation was arrested Friday, accused of sending a profanity laced, threatening email to Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee Jr.

Seminole County deputies began investigating Thursday, after 68-year-old John Carnduff Stewart sent an 8:23 a.m. email to Lee with the subject line “Coming after you,” the Sheriff’s Office said.

“You and your family deserve to be hunted down and shot like a dog, just like Trayvon Martin,” deputies said Stewart wrote. He called the Sanford Police Department “bigoted” and “unprofessional.”

“I have more weapons than your entire police department and I would love to use some of them to take you down,” the email says. Stewart ended his message, deputies say, with his home address.

“I dare you to visit my home or send one of your officers and find out exactly how long you or other police officers would last,” says the short email, which was released Friday afternoon.

Investigators took Stewart up on his dare Friday morning, searching his home and finding “additional threatening emails” on his computer. He confessed to sending Lee the email, deputies say.

“I know what this is about,” Stewart told investigators, according to his arrest report. “I sent the emails, and I wanted to piss them off.”

Seminole County officials said Stewart “is known to authorities” for sending similar emails in the past. He was booked into the Brevard County Jail, and later was transferred to Seminole County.
