Florida Man Calls 911 to Threaten President Obama
On Saturday, Orange County deputies said Terrence Bonney, 53, placed five angry calls to 911 to express his feelings about government, law enforcement and President Barack Obama. It came at the same time that Obama was in the area giving campaign speeches.
Secret Service agents were sent to investigate, and deputies arrested Bonney for misusing the 911 system.
Neighbors, however, said he should have been in jail years ago.
Booney was arrested, and as he was carted away by deputies, he yelled, “It’s like I shot JFK” and “I guess you can’t threaten the president.”
No. You can’t threaten the president. It’s illegal.
Booney went on to tell deputies that he had a picture of President Obama in his home.
“It’s a picture of Obama with a noose around his head, with a bullet hole in the center of his forehead,” said Bonney’s neighbor, Michael Gatten, who says Bonney has the potential for violence.
“For me, it’s a hundred times worse than the president,” said Gatten. “He’s made statements like, ‘I’ll destroy you and your family.’”
Gatten described his neighbor as a strange man who sometimes puts bloodied troll dolls on his lawn for Christmas.
“I have an 8-year-old daughter and she doesn’t need to hear the words he yells at me and my family and she doesn’t have to see swastikas on the front lawn,” said Gatten.
