La Mesa Man Guilty Of Threats Against Obama

La Mesa man finds out when free speech is no longer protected, after he is convicted of making threats against a candidate for president.

Bagdasarian requested and was granted a bench

trial, meaning no jury decided his fate. In finding him guilty U. S.

messages, one which read, "He will have a 50 cal in the head soon,"

were discovered after a retired air force officer saw them on a Yahoo

finance website and called the secret service.- [source]
