I will keep this diary short as I think the sick story speaks for itself. Suffice it to say, some anti-gun control folks are pretty scary. Be warned that below the fold there contains some disturbing language.
Channel 9 News in Denver reports on the story of a white man from Colorado Springs, Colorado, who allegedly sent racist, misogynistic, and threatening emails, voicemails and letters to a black Colorado state representative who is pushing for stricter gun control laws.
Trends In Hate sums up the story and it, along with the Channel 9 News link, have a link to the very, very disturbing arrest warrant (bracketed material is mine):
In Denver, Colorado on this date [March 4] in 2013, a white man, Franklin Glenn Sain, 42 (Date of Birth: October 27, 1970), of Colorado Springs, Colorado, was arraigned on charges of attempting to influence a public servant and harassment-ethnic intimidation (a hate crime) for allegedly sending threatening emails, letters and a voicemail message directed at a black Democratic state representative, Rhonda Fields, of Aurora, Colorado. In the arrest warrant for Franklin Sain, police allege he called his victim a "fucking cunt," a "whore" and referred to her and President Obama by repeatedly using a racist slur (the N-word), because of Ms. Fields' support of stricter gun control laws in Colorado. Sain also allegedly sent Ms. Fields, whose son was shot and killed in 2005 before he was able to testify against a gang member, a letter stating "There will be blood" and expressing his wish that someone would "Gifords" her, a reference to the near-fatal gunshot-wounding of Arizona Representative Gabrielle Giffords. Police also said Sain admitted to sending Ms. Fields six e-mails filled with profanity and sexual and racial slus and left similar voicemail messages to her between February 13 and February 15, 2013.
Sain was let out on bail and he is to appear in Court on March 8.
