A Florida man was arrested this week for Facebook posts threatening President-elect Donald Trump.
According to the Orlando Sun-Sentinel, Kevin Keith Krohn posted a photo of Trump with the caption, “He’s not my president / He’s an enemy of the state.”
And he himself allegedly wrote above the photo, “I’m just glad Obama didn’t take all our gunz! I see a good use for one now.”
He also posted a photo of a sniper with the comment, “The EXPEDITER of Trump! He will never last long!”
Secret Service agents were tipped off by local law enforcement, and this is how agents say things went down when they confronted Krohn:
“Krohn became confrontational when asked if he made the statements threatening the PEOTUS [President-elect of the United States] … Krohn declared any statements he made were an expression of his First Amendment rights,” agents wrote in court records.
When he was asked if he made any threats against Trump, agents said he became more confrontational, “began pacing in the yard, and in a loud voice said, ‘Well then, arrest me.”
He was subsequently arrested.
