Brian Dutcher of Tomah was charged with making threats to kill president Barrack Obama during his visit in La Crosse Thursday. Dutcher had been making his threats of killing Mr Obama through a series of Facebook posts according to court affidavit submitted by Secret Service Special Agent Jeffrey Ferris.
“I’ll take him out and I’ll take the shot”
Dutcher was anticipating Mr Obama’s Thursday visit to La Crosse as revealed through his Facebook posts on Tuesday, the Wisconsin State Journal reported.
“That’s it! Thursday I will be in La Crosse. Hopefully I will get a clear shot at the pretend president. Killing him is our constitutional duty,” Dutcher posted on Facebook according to the affidavit submitted by Agent Ferris.
“I have been praying on going to D.C. for 3 months and now the usurper is coming here. Saving me a 800 mile trip. Doing what I do for my daughter, so she can live free. Pray for me to succeed in my mission,” Dutcher’s comment on one of his posts read.
“Secret service is probably tracking my phone right now. I do not hide what I am doing, constitutionally,” another post of Dutcher reads.
Dutcher had even told a security guard at La Crosse Public Library that he will shoot the president. “The usurper is here and if I get a chance, I’ll take him out and I’ll take the shot,” he reportedly said.
U.S. Attorney John Vaudreuil told the Wisconsin State Journal that Dutcher is now being kept in a mental health facility. He will not be appearing in federal court.
Mr Obama talks about economy in La Crosse
Meanwhile, Mr Obama’s speech at La Crosse discusses how his administration has created 223,000 jobs in June. He said that the unemployment rate is now down to 5.3 percent. (Watch video below)
“Keep in mind, when I came into office it was hovering around 10 percent. All told, we’ve now seen 64 straight months of private sector job growth, which is a new record 12.8 million new jobs all told,” he said in his speech.
Mr Obama promised to ship fewer jobs overseas and to start bringing new jobs to America. He said the efforts have begun in the American auto industry. The nation is on track to sell more cars and trucks this year as compared to the past ten years, the president said.
America’s manufacturing industry has added nearly 9,000 new jobs and manufacturing continues to grow faster than the rest of the economy, he said.
The nation now also leads in the traditional fuels, both in oil and gas, he said. The country is generating more than 20 times as much solar electricity as it did in 2008.
This has proven to be beneficial to the typical American families for now they can save 700 bucks at the pump this year, the president said to the applause of his audience. His government, according to him, was able to introduce tax cuts for 98 percent of the American people and 97 percent of small businesses.
“So we’ve got a record streak of private sector job growth. We’ve cut the deficit by two-thirds. Our stock market has more than doubled, restoring 401ks for millions of families. This is progress. Step by step, America is moving forward. Middle-class economics works. It works. Yes!”
