Death Threat from a man from Utah
Claire McCaskill, who previously served as the United States Senator from Missouri was the latest victim in a string of violent threats to government officials. Apparently an assailant was on his way in a speeding car to kill McCaskill.
On Wednesday morning, George William Stahl, a resident of Utah was spotted by a Utah Highway Patrol officer as he was speeding through the snow at a speed of 135 mph.
After failed attempts to get William Stahl to stop his car, the police had to spike his tires to stop the car. The man was later arrested on charges of driving recklessly, making terroristic threats, speeding, failing to stop, DUI, and drug possession to which he himself admitted.
Upon being taken to the police station, Stahl told the police officers that he was speeding through the snow because he was on his way to kill Claire McCaskill.
This isn’t the first incident in recent times when a politician is threatened. A few days ago, a man from Staten Island was arrested for posting anti-Semitic threats to Minority Leader Senator Chuck Schumer.
This only goes to show how unstable the political climate is. McCaskill when reached to comment on the incident, said:
“Obviously, this is not the first time there have been threats, and that is never good, but the political temperature is very high right now, which makes it concerning.”
