Indeed, not all jokes are funny. And joking to assassinate the President of the United States of America is really not a practical joke at all. While most jokes are funny, what if half of the joke is true?
A Utah man caused himself trouble after placing a note that reads "1 - Hijack Plane, 2 - Kill Obama," in his friend’s travel case on August last year. The man told FBI that it was intended as a practical joke but that did not exempt him to from being charged with a misdemeanor count of making a false alarm, reports Reuters on Wednesday.
Jeremiah Hill and his friend were both working at an Air Force Base, north of Salt Lake City last August, when he reportedly placed the threatening note in his friend’s luggage. It was later on discovered by the Transportation Security Administration screeners during a baggage check before Hill’s friend boarded a Delta Airlines flight to Arizona, report says.
Hill, 31 was identified as a civilian employee working at the base and he is set to appear for an initial court hearing on May 30.
