Fed prosecutors in San Francisco have decided on Monday not to retry a man who was charged with threatening to kill President Obama via email, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

The decision came after a jury on Nov.1 deadlocked in a 6 to 6 vote on whether the racist and violent email was a threat or an empty rant, the Chronicle reported.

The paper reported that U.S. District Judge Marilyn Hall Patel of San Francisco ordered defendant John Gimbel released from custody after fed prosecutors decided not to retry him.

Gimbel, 60, of Crescent City Del Norte County,Calif. was arrested after sending an e-mail in September 2009 to Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and several news organizations, the paper reported.

The paper said the subject line stated “Kill the ‘president’ ” and the message was filled with profanity and racial epithets.
