DC Police Officer Threatened to Shoot Michelle Obama

Say what now? A Washington, DC police officer who worked as a motorcycle escort for White House officials and other dignitaries was moved to administrative duty Wednesday after he allegedly was overheard threatening to shoot first lady Michelle Obama, according to the Washington Post.
The motorman allegedly made the comments Wednesday morning as several officers from the Special Operations Division discussed threats against the Obamas. It was not immediately clear where the alleged conversation took place or exactly how many officers took part in the conversation. During that conversation, the officials said, the officer allegedly said he would shoot the First Lady and then used his phone to retrieve a picture of the firearm he said he would use. It was not immediately clear what type of firearm was allegedly shown. An officer overheard the alleged threat and reported it to a police lieutenant at the Division, who immediately notified superiors, the officials said. “We received an allegation that inappropriate comments were made. We are currently investigating the nature of those comments,” D.C. police spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump said in an e-mail. She declined to discuss the matter further. Police officials declined to identify the officer. Officials from the U.S. Attorney’s office declined comment.

We already have nut jobs pretending to be pastors calling on their "followers" to kill the Obamas, so certainly we can't have people with actual access to the Obamas trying -- whether jokingly or not -- to off them.
