Denver, Colorado (JusticeNewsFlash.com – Breaking News Report) -– Obama has not even been elected yet and already there is threats directed at his life. Colorado officials arrested 28-year-old Tharin Gartrell for ‘erratic driving’ when they searched his vehicle, two guns with ammunition and a scope were found; along with a bullet proof vest, walkie talkies, driver’s licenses in other people’s names and methamphetamine.
Police traced Gertrell back to the Cherry Tree hotel, which led to an additional arrest of Nathan Johnson, who jumped from the sixth story to avoid arrest, but was caught. Johnson was said to have links to white supremacist organizations and was wearing a ring with a swastika. Allegedly the two men told investigators they intended to shoot Obama from “a high vantage point” during his upcoming outdoor acceptance speech at Denver Broncos’ Invesco Field. 70,000 are expected to be inside the venue.
The U.S. Secret Service, the FBI and a joint anti-terrorism task force are all extremely involved in monitoring this possible plot. The U.S. Attorney’s Office has scheduled a news conference for later today to discuss the matter. More to follow this article.
