There are nuts, and then there are loco-weeds. This man, Adam Cox, a self-described Obama fanatic was sentenced for his threat on the lives of Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, AZ. You’re likely familiar with “Sheriff Joe” for his various exploits over the years, including pink jail jumpsuits, the revival of chain gangs, and the tent city in which he housed inmates. Last month, it was his “Cold Case Posse” that had been investigating allegations about Barack Obama, and had made a determination that the birth certificate published by the White House last year in response to Donald Trump was likely a forgery based on the image the Obama administration posted on the Internet. In short, leftists think Joe Arpaio is the villain, and the institutional left throw insults at him constantly, and the DoJ under Attorney General Eric Holder has investigated Arpaio’s department half to death. I suppose this liberal loon simply wanted to finish the job.
Maybe some of that is why Adam Cox decided to make threats against Sheriff Joe on the Internet, but whatever the case, as Fox Phoenix reports, he’s now been sentenced. Unfortunately, he won’t be doing any jail time, instead facing probation instead. According to Fox Phoenix:
PHOENIX – A man described as a President Barack Obama fanatic pleads guilty to threatening to kill Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Adam Eugene Cox appeared in a Tennessee courtroom on Wednesday. He was arrested last year for a death threat that began on the Internet. Cox threatened to kill the sheriff and his family. Cox will not go to jail. He was sentenced to supervised probation.
This is troubling, because the man actually threatened multiple murders. I’m not sure we should take such people so lightly that we turn them loose in society. Supervised probation certainly seems a small price to pay for levying murder threats against one of the best-known and most popular law enforcement officers in the country. Besides, look at him.
And to think that Obama’s supporters make fun of conservative Republicans as a bunch of “inbred rednecks” and so on? When I look at this guy, a movie comes to mind. Deliverance?
