    Philadelphia Man Charged with Threatening to Kill U.S. Congressman and His Family

    PHILADELPHIA—Today, a two-count complaint and warrant was filed charging Norman Leboon with threatening to kill United States Congressman Eric Cantor and his family, and threatening to kill Congressman Eric Cantor, who is an official of the United States, announced United States Attorney Michael L. Levy and FBI Special Agent in Charge Jan Fedarcyk. As set forth in the affidavit to the complaint and warrant, in or about late March, 2010, Leboon created and then transmitted a YouTube video to Google over the Internet, in which he threatened to kill Congressman Cantor and his family. No harm came to the Congressman or his family as a result of Leboon’s threats.

    Sounds like this guy is very likely to be mentally ill and in need of some Lithium.

    Somewhere in the 80's, the powers that be decided that the mentally ill are harmed by being kept in mental institutions. So they unanimously released mentally incompetent, often haunted, loose in society where they fall victims of prey to those who hurt or take advantage of them, where they are terrified of those who can help, powerless to take or afford the medications that kept the fears away, unable to fend throw the myriad of social programs that could help if they could only figure them out. Any many are not seen, or heard, but suffer silently and fearfully, and would have been safer and happier to remain "institutionalized" where there is order and help and safety. I see them all the time, sleeping in doorways, acting crazy in ER's where other waiting patients are laughing or smirking at their bizarre attempts to get help, sitting at tables in the library chanting. Just the other day, there was a most likely homeless, hapless fellow citing bible verses and looking very unkempt. I approached him slowly, asked if he had anything to eat today, and his reddened eyes looked through me, and he shook his head. I was fortunately enough to have 10 bucks on me, thank you God, and I left it near him but did not touch him and asked him to take care of himself.

    The criminally insane and potential dangerously insane are also walking among us with no one generally to insure they take necessary meds that keep their demons at bay. I don't know how the decisions were made, and while I am sure that perhaps some people were kept in mental institutions that could fend for themselves, far too many are lost on our streets. Remember to look out for these people and help them if you can.

    . . . I don't know how the decisions were made . . .
    It cost to much taxpayer money to keep them locked up, so they let 'em all loose.

    Where's the media circus about this? Democrats have been playing up the alleged threats they've received, but this is the first I've heard of this happening to Cantor - Rep.

    Anyone arrested for the Dem threats yet?

    Man arrested for threatening to kill Cantor

    House Republican had accused Dems of publicizing threats for political gain

    Video
    updated 10:48 a.m. PT, Mon., March. 29, 2010

    WASHINGTON - U.S. authorities have arrested and charged a man with threatening to kill the No. 2 Republican in the House of Representatives, Eric Cantor, and his family, according to court documents filed on Monday.

    Norman Leboon, 38, was accused of making the threat in a video on YouTube in which he said, "You receive my bullets in your office, remember they will be placed in your heads," according to an FBI affidavit accompanying the charge.

    A bullet was fired through a window at Cantor's Richmond, Virginia, campaign office last week, but police said it had been shot into the air and struck the window in a downward direction, suggesting it was a stray bullet.

    Republicans and Democrats in the U.S. Congress have been trading accusations that each side was encouraging threats that have been made against lawmakers in the wake of the new health care law that Congress passed and President Barack Obama signed last week.

    On Thursday, Cantor referenced past threats against him during a press conference held to address reports of violence in the wake of the House’s vote on the health care overhaul bill. He said that he has been targeted because of his policy positions and his Jewish faith.

    Authorities tracked Leboon to an address in Philadelphia where there was a state warrant pending in connection with other threats, according to an affidavit filed by an FBI agent with the two-count complaint.

    Leboon was arrested on Saturday and during an interview with the FBI, he said he had made the video with his cell phone and submitted it to YouTube, the FBI affidavit said. Leboon said he had made more than 2,000 videos with threats, it said.

    Describing himself as the "son of the god of Enoch," Leboon called Cantor as "pure evil" and that the lawmaker's family was "suffering because of his father's wrath," the affidavit said.

    The Virginia lawmaker, who serves as chief Republican vote counter in the House of Representatives, was told of the threat over the weekend and subsequently of the arrest, his spokesman, Brad Dayspring, said in a statement.

    If convicted, Leboon could face up to 15 years in prison and a $500,000 fine.
