Florida man Christopher Castillo, aka the latest person to make obnoxious threats against the President, was interviewed in his home by secret service about his November 1 Facebook post that read: “That’s the last straw, if he gets re-elected I’m going to hunt him down and kill him watch the life disappear from his eyes.” According to the felony complaint, one of Castillo’s Facebook friends commented that “Threatening the POTUS is a federal offense,” to which he replied, “I wouldn’t call it a threat but more of a promise, let them come after me… Be more than happy to take a few of them with me.” Naturally Secret Service made a special visit to his Melbourne home. When asked about the Facebook comments he made, Castillo said “that he made the comments out of severe anger towards the president for his views of healthcare and said, “We’re all going to be screwed.”

When asked by agents what he would do “if the President was standing right here,” Castillo, who coulda woulda shoulda kept his mouth shut, instead flamboyantly ranted that he would, “bitch slap him, and beat the sh*t out of him … scream and yell at him and tell him he was a terrorist.” He was informed by the agents that his statements were a violation of federal law, to which he responded, “it did not matter.”

Castillo was arrested on November 14, 2012. Castillo’s Facebook comment has reportedly been taken down.
