Mug Shot Wednesday


He's right to be angry, but this isn't going to help.

Cleveland.com reports:
A Fairview Park man has been charged in federal court with tweeting an Election-Night threat against Republican President-elect Donald Trump.

A criminal complaint unsealed Monday says that Zachary Benson made the posts on Twitter early Wednesday morning, right before most major news outlets declared Trump the winner.

"Diplomacy. F---ing fools. I hate you all. I want to bomb every one of your voting booths and your general areas."

"My life goal is to assassinate Trump. Don't care if I serve infinite sentences. That man deserves to decease existing."

A U.S. Secret Service agent interviewed Benson late Wednesday. He admitted to making the threats and was apologetic, the complaint says.

Benson is charged with making threat to a successor to the presidency. He turned himself in Thursday and made his first appearance in front of a judge on Monday. Preliminary and detention hearings are scheduled for later this week.

In his interview with the Secret Service, Benson said he was at a restaurant on Election Night with his father and a friend. They had a few drinks and food before going home, the complaint says.
