The Secret Service takes threats on the life of the president pretty seriously. That's kind of their main job. So don't be surprised when you casually mention the assassination of the president on Facebook and then find them knocking on your door. That's what happened to one Florida woman, who probably should have known better considering she is a cop.

Sarah Coursey works as a road patrol officer for the Tavares Police Department up in Lake County.

Last Thursday, about 10 minutes into President Obama's speech at the Democratic National Convention, she took to Facebook and wrote, "Where's Lee Harvey Oswald or John Wilkes Booth when you need them!?!? :)"

Oh, a smiley face. Nice touch. It lets everyone know that you're just sitting their smiling thinking about political assassination. Totally normal, sane people stuff to smile about.

According to The Daily Commercial, someone noticed the posting and sent a screenshot of it to Coursey's boss Tavares Police Chief Stoney Lubins. Stoney Lubins then ordered an internal investigation. Coursey meanwhile is on paid administrative leave.

The Secret Service also caught wind, and came down to Tavares to investigate.

Not only is this nit-wit stupid for making the comment, regarding President Obama, but Lee Harvey Oswald did not fire a weapon on Nov. 22, 1963. This has been known since the mid- to late-'60s, thanks to the work of independent researchers.

Had the assassination gone down like our government tried convincing us, why did Federal agents visit Oswald's corpse while it was in the funeral home, and fingerprint the corpse? The funeral director, Paul Groody, had to remove the ink from Oswald's hands after the agents left.



Please try to ignore blowhard, Alex Jones, in this Groody interview:



She is scum of the earth and acts like it


PAID leave?  That's ridiculous.  PAID leave is a vacation.  So she gets to sit on her ass and relax while other people do her work and she gets paid for it?  She should be fired and never allowed to work as a cop again.


Funny, I was thinking the same thing about cops at Tavares Police Department.  Hey it's all good fun, right?  Joking about killing elected officials and being a protector of the peace - it's in the bible people!  God committed genocide every other day, why get all pissy about a little assassination now and then?  Obviously I'm being snarky.  The good news?  NOW YOU KNOW WHO SHE REALLY IS.


paid leave sounds like a vacation to me


what a dumb stupid bitch
