The stalker division of the LAPD formed in the early 90s after the murder of Rebecca Shaeffer. It’s known as “Threat Assessment,” and it has developed a pretty good methodology for winnowing the violent freaks from the passive (but loud & scary) freaks.

One of the data points that sticks in my mind: the stalker usually tries to provoke a confrontation with the victim (kinda like CCJ taking a picture of our host’s house), with the unconscious purpose of being humiliated & rejected. Then the stalker internalizes the humiliation, and uses it to fuel rage, which the boils over and turns into an outwardly directed violent act.

The visits from the Secret Service may be the kind of event that these “wound collectors” take and nurture for years, to fuel their sense of victimhood & aggreivement. That then (in their sick minds, at least) then fully justifies their throwing acid/slashing with razor blades/shooting/kidnapping their targets.

You see this a lot in family law court as well.

One series of tweets addressed to @POTUS that caught the Secret Service’s attention—at least enough to warrant an in-person visit from an agent—came from a user with the handle @jeffgully49 and included a picture showing a doctored version of the president’s campaign posters with his head in a noose and the word “HOPE” changed to “ROPE.” The messages were apparently posted by Jeff Gullickson of Plymouth, Minnesota, who was later visited at his home by a Secret Service agent. “The agent from the secret service was cordial,” Gullickson wrote in an email to MPR News, adding that the agent just wanted to be sure his tweets were not serious threats.

“Just joking” or “just blowing off steam” is no defense for these kinds of threats. It is expensive to send agents all over the country to make so many threat assessments. At the very least there should be steep fines for such threats to eliminate them much the way “joking” about bombs at airports declined when the penalties for such jokes were dramatically increased. First amendment rights do not protect criminal, violent threats.

re: #2 KerFuFFler

I honestly think that if you do something like that, there should be a mandatory 10 years in prison, and loss of voting rights.

Vicious Babushka,

Don’t threaten the President, or the secret service will be onto you and take you down.
