A Wisconsin man threatened to kill President Barack Obama according to an arrest warrant issued on Thursday. Brian D. Dutcher, 55, of Tomah, allegedly uttered the Obama death threat to a security guard at La Crosse Library.
“The usurper is here and if I get a chance I’ll take him out and I’ll take the shot,” Brian Dutcher allegedly said to the Wisconsin security guard when referencing Obama’s visit to the state to stump for overtime pay reform.
Secret Service agents interviewed the Wisconsin man who is accused of threatening to kill President Obama. The arrest warrant states that Dutcher “confirmed” making the “usurper is here” comment at the La Crosse Library.
Brian D. Dutcher also reportedly made a Facebook post on June 30 that allegedly referenced a desire to shoot and kill Obama.
“That’s it! Thursday I will be in La Crosse. Hopefully I will get a clear shot at the pretend president. Killing him is our CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY!”
Dutcher also allegedly told a La Crosse police detective that his death threat against Obama was “serious” and that “he would not have said what he said if he didn’t intend to carry it out.”
U.S. Attorney John Vaudreuil told the Wisconsin State Journal that law enforcement authorities have sought a civil commitment. The Tomah man who threatened to shoot the president is reportedly being held in a mental health facility. Court records do not indicate whether or not Dutcher has an attorney representing him at this time.
