From College OTR:
Four men were taken into custody yesterday after one man, Tharin Gartrell, was arrested in Denver when police found two rifles, ammo, a rifle scope, a bullet-proof vest, walkie-talkies and meth in his car during a routine traffic stop. They knew it was serious because of the walkie-talkies– well that, and the fact that one of the suspects told authorities they were “going to shoot Obama from a high vantage point using… a rifle sighted at 750 yards.”
Although U.S. Attorney Troy Eid obfuscates that “there is no credible threat to the [democratic] candidate, the Democratic National convention, or the people of Colorado,” Fox News (Karl Rove’s new hangout) reports that the men arrested for possibly plotting an assassination of Barack Obama may be tied to the outlaw biker group called the Sons of Silence.

So when you see me on the road and wonder what I am like under the helmet, please don’t assume that I am a mentally challenged, rifle-toting, walkie-talkie carrying, methed out hooligan.
No, I don’t do meth.
