Man Who Threatens the President is from West Virginia
A man accused of sending threats and racial slurs to President Obama and his family is from West Virginia, and will be in court today before a federal magistrate. 20-year old Ryan Kirker McMechen of Marshall County is accused of sending a letter to the President in April, with the phrase "KKK forever," along with threats and profanity. An affidavit from a U.S. Secret Service agent said forensic experts also determined that Kirker had written of his plan to someone named John in late March. That letter allegedly mentioned a weapon and his ability to obtain armor-piercing ammunition.
