BULLETIN: Purported ‘Sovereign’ Indicted On Charges Of Threatening To Kill Public Officials: ‘Your Dirt Nap Is Coming Very Soon’

americaatrisk4BULLETIN: A purported “sovereign citizen” from Nanuet, N.Y., has been charged under state law with criminal possession of a weapon and under federal law with threatening to kill public officials and inciting Facebook visitors to carry out political assassinations.

Lawrence Mulqueen, 49, claimed that a county’s sheriff is “the highest law enforcer in all the land,” according to an FBI affidavit in the case.

Mulqueen wrote that he “cannot wait to start killing the scum,” according to the affidavit. Intended targets included Gov. Andrew Cuomo, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Sen. Charles Schumer, Rep. Nita Lowey, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Harry Reid and “every Congressional Black Caucus member there is.”

“Your time is about up[,] scumbags,” Mulqueen wrote, according to the affidavit. “[Y]our dirt nap is coming very soon.”

Meanwhile, according to the affidavit, Mulqueen called for snipers to shoot “inner city scum” from a distance of “at least 100 yards” or to stab targets “to conserve bullets.”

“As alleged, Lawrence Mulqueen used the power and reach of Facebook to make incendiary threats, including the use of deadly force, against federally-elected officials and others,” said U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara of the Southern District of New York. “He even provided his like-minded Facebook friends with a virtual ‘how to’ on the most effective weapons to use in making good on those threats. The internet is a forum for free expression, but it does not give anyone a carte blanche to break the law.”

One of the best weapons for assassination is a shotgun made in Italy, Mulqueen allegedly told an individual on Facebook.

The investigation began when the Clarkstown Police Department (Rockland County) received a complaint about Mulqueen, officials said.

“Overt threats of the sort made by this defendant against our elected leaders are especially troubling and must be dealt with to the fullest extent of the law,” said Rockland County District Attorney Thomas P. Zugibe.

Added FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge George Venizelos: “The defendant is alleged not only to have threatened to kill elected officials. He did the virtual equivalent of standing in the town square with a megaphone, using his Facebook page to exhort others to carry out these assassinations. Freedom of speech is a fundamental right, but making overt threats is not protected speech, it’s a crime.”

Mulqueen also called for the assassination of immigrants and called supporters of President Obama “traitor scum” who deserved to die, according to the affidavit.

“I want these scumbags DEAD!!!” he allegedly wrote. “[F]*** them and death to them all.”

  1. If a county’s sheriff is “the highest law enforcer in all the land,” does that mean that they are the only law enforcement these idiots will obey? No, they will kill them as well, and anyone else that gets in their way.

    Officer Who Thwarted ‘Sovereign Citizen’ Rampage To Be Honored At Medal Of Valor Ceremony
    The incident happened in 2010.

    Officer Neal used his truck to ram the suspects’ van to prevent the suspects from being mobile and possibly harming innocent bystanders, and to divert the suspects’ attention away from the Sheriff and Deputy. Once Officer Neal rammed the suspects’ van, the suspects opened fire on Officer Neal’s truck, firing several rounds through his windshield.

    The shooting deaths of officers Brandon Paudert and Bill Evans at the hands of the Kanes will live in infamy, Tony. Wildlife Officer Michael Neal is an American hero.

    Brandon was the son of Chief Bob Paudert of the West Memphis PD. Chief Paudert is retired now.

    “Sovereign citizen” James Timothy Turner later had the temerity to sue Chief Paudert.
