How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Anti-DEA rants on Facebook Were Threatening and Specific, Judge Decided

An Indiana man who posted vague but violent threats against DEA agents on Facebook is headed to trial after a judge last week rejected a free speech defense, CNET reports.

In August 2011, Matthew Michael is accused of writing a series of angry posts about DEA agents.

“War is near,” he wrote on Facebook. “Anarchy and justice will be sought…I’ll kill whoever I deem to be in the way of harmony to the human race…BE WARNED IF U PULL ME OVER!”

CNET said U.S. District Judge William Lawrence rejected the defense’s notion that no law was broken because the threat wasn’t specific to anyone.

Lawrence disagreed, saying threats “were directed at natural persons, namely DEA agents.”

Michael is charged with three counts of transmitting threats in interstate commerce.
