A Colorado Mesa University student has been arrested for threatening to kill President Obama — a threat he made while being treated by a therapist. But Mitchell Kenneth Kusick, 20, of Westminster, Colo., is not your ordinary wants-to-assassinate-the-president kind of crazy.

According to Jefferson County Court records, Kusick also:

Said he was obsessed with the shootings at Columbine High School and Virginia Tech.

Is also obsessed with the Dark Knight Rises theater massacre.

Said he wanted to shoot children on Halloween.

CBS Denver:

Kusick also allegedly admitted that he wanted to assassinate President Barack Obama. He said he had been keeping track of his travel schedule, and wanted to go down in history as “the guy who killed Obama.”

And then, this paragraph happened:

Among Kusick’s interests on his Facebook page are ‘American conspiracies,’ the Call of Duty video games and the film Paul Blart: Mall Cop.

Kusick’s Facebook page shows him running a triathlon, and includes a photo he took of himself in a bathroom mirror wearing a Denver Broncos jersey and hat. You can’t buy publicity like that.

    dont worry if he ever tried to do that a RAIDERS fan would knock him out,

    by the way , google “denver broncos cheating salary cap” during the 1997-1999 seasons,

    those 2 superbowls do not count, they should have a asterisk next to them, if thats the case and we are all cheating the cap so crucially, imagine what Jerry Jones woulda done, ha he maybe have 6 superbowls right now.

    never liked anyone from denver, girl or guy,

    colorado buffalo football gets blown out every week by 60+ points,

    the nuggets get knocked out every year by the lakers/spurs

    i think its funny when people from denver act “gangster” ,

    the mean streets of “denver” – eminem

          Trust me when I say that pithy little comebacks like, “u should die” are clearly the work of a pinhead.

    “Said he was obsessed with the shootings at Columbine High School and Virginia Tech.

    Seriously, what is it about this area of the country? You hate to blanket an idea based solely on an area of the country, but seriously, what is it with Colorado?

    Perhaps people just don’t get enough oxygen up there……

    That’s all they need….weed, and a lack of oxygen.

    So glad this young man has been stopped, is in the open, and getting help now, before he had a chance to ruin lives, including his own and his family’s. Hopefully he’ll come around and have a chance at a normal life and glad we have a better awareness to spot things like this.

    What’s in the air in Colorado, too many hippies and neo-cons living in tight quarters?

    Well, he has that in common with every mass-media outlet in the USA. Good reason for the FBI to run all their internet feeds through carnivore via the Room 641A operations setup by Bush43, huh.
