Oklahoma Teabagger Arrested For Twitter Threats
In what is probably the first arrest based on microblogging, 52-year-0ld Daniel Knight Hayden was taken into custody for making threats on Twitter. Hayden threatenened to turn the April 15 demonstrations into a bloodbath. On April 11 he tweeted that we was going to start a “war” against the government.
“START THE KILLING NOW! I am willing to be the FIRST DEATH!,” read a tweet at 8:01 PM that day. “After I am killed on the Capitol Steps, like a REAL man, the rest of you will REMEMBER ME!!!,” he added five minutes later. Then: “Send the cops around. I will cut their heads off the heads and throw the[m] on the State Capitol steps.”
Hayden’s MySpace page is a breathtaking gallery of right wing memes about the “New World Order,” gun control as Nazi fascism, and Barack Obama’s covert use of television hypnosis, among many others.
Hayden is now in a halfway house pending trial.Click here for reuse options!
