UPDATED: The Sheriff's Department says it took Mark Lovejoy M/W, 5/30/1950 into custody today. "Lovejoy admitted to authoring the email but stated that he did not intend to send it. He added that when authored the email when he was "pissed off". He stated that when he closed his email out, he email sent out the email automatically. He was apologetic again stating that he did not mean to send the email."
We’ll see whether DA John Chisholm decides this is worthy of prosecution, but our latest example of tolerant, liberal compassion – a threatening obscene email to Sheriff David Clarke Jr. -- comes with a special dose of profound stupidity.
Let’s start with the fact that the author of this email sent it from an account under his own name. Second, it appears the writer has prior run-ins with the law, including pleading guilty to a 2008 charge of "Unlawful Phone Use-Threaten w/Conceal ID."
Third, he sent it to… a cop. (So, yeah, they know who sent it.)
BONUS: In case there’s any doubt about the political leanings of the alleged author, a man with the same name and address also signed the Walker recall petition on November 19, 2011.
