Sounds like a case of displaced anger. After all, why Joe Biden?

Justin Alan Woodward was charged with threatening to kill Vice President Joe Biden after allegedly posting a message on the White House website, the Associated Press reported. He faces a detention hearing Wednesday in Hawaii.

AP reports that Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie said agents arrested Justin Alan Woodward on Friday when he arrived in Honolulu on a Delta Airlines flight from Bangkok, Thailand.

AP reported that the criminal complaint filed in federal court alleged that Woodward’s email was traced to a public Wi-Fi access point in Thailand.

The complaint notes that Woodward is from Kansas and was discharged from the Marines in 2004 after being diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
