Reaping what the Right-Wing Hate Mongers Have Sown, Part V - Maybe

Police investigate possible plot to kill Obama : Updates : The Rocky Mountain News
Authorities are investigating a possible threat against presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama.


Police found four weapons, including two rifles and two handguns, in a rented pickup.

That arrest then led authorities to a second man staying at the Cherry Creek Hotel at 600 South Colorado Blvd in Glendale. When authorities knocked on the man's door, they say he jumped out of his sixth floor window, landing on an awning and running from the scene. They say they soon found him with a broken ankle. He too was arrested.


Police found a rifle in the man's pickup and methamphetamine. The man allegedly made comments about Sen. Obama, but sources wouldn't say what they were.

It was enough, however, to make police believe the man might have been plotting to somehow harm Obama.

A second source told CBS4 News that they are concerned they may have come upon a possible "assassination plot."
