Man Who Threatened Obama With Violence Just Got What He Deserved
Oregon man Martin Roos went on an online rampage and threatened to kill former President Barrack Obama. According to Oregon Live, the man was sentenced to serve in federal prison.
U.S. attorney for Oregon, Billy J. Williams said in a statement: “Threats of violence directed at public officials and law enforcement are a serious matter. Violent social media posts are every bit as serious as those made in other venues.”
The 62-year-old Oregon man was sentenced to five years and three months in federal prison by U.S. District Judge Michael J. McShane.
Roos admitted to making online death threats to Obama and his family. He also admitted to threatening to shoot FBI agents.
Roos was arrested back in 2016 by the FBI, who found a loaded gun, weapons, pipe bombs, and ammunition storied in his apartment.
