How to Become a Bounty Hunter



White Supremacist Sentenced in Plot to Kill African-Americans Including Obama

A Tennessee White Supremacist who planned to go on a killing spree of African-Americans and kill Barack Obama during his campaign for the presidency is off to prison for 14 years.

Daniel Cowart, 22, of Bells, Tenn. was sentenced Friday in Tennessee after he pleaded guilty earlier in the year to a host of charges including conspiracy, threatening to kill and inflict bodily harm upon a major candidate for the office of President of the United States, interstate transportation of a short-barreled shotgun and interstate transportation of a firearm for the purpose of committing a felony, the Justice Department said.

Cowart  admitted to conspiring with Paul Schlesselman of West Helena, Ark., to go on the killing spree. Schlesselman was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

“Threats of violence fueled by bigotry and hate have no place in the United States of America, and they will not be tolerated,” said Thomas E. Perez, Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division. “Although the heroic intervention of law enforcement spared us from a tragedy, this conspiracy and its associated crimes demanded a severe sentence. The sentence imposed constitutes serious punishment for a serious crime.”
