The news is out: [A Florida sheriff’s deputy was arrested after authorities said he threatened to kill federal agents who were under attack by rioters at the U.S. Capitol this month.
The man, Polk County Deputy Peter Heneen, 29, was booked on suspicion of making threats to kill or do bodily injury, a second-degree felony, officials said.
Heneen has been suspended, and Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said he has started the administrative process of firing the deputy, who has been on the job for 6½ years.
Heneen’s alleged threats, made in text messages to a fellow deputy, had to be taken seriously, Judd told reporters during a news conference Tuesday.
“Words matter, and threatening words to hurt to kill are not acceptable,” he said.
Heneen’s profanity-laced words included:
“F— the feds. No shoot the feds. Need to make the streets of DC run red with the blood of these tyrants.”
“I’ll f—— kill them all.”
“Any cop or military who stands in the way is the enemy.”
The colleague reported Heneen’s diatribe to their lieutenant the next morning, touching off the investigation that ended in Heneen’s arrest, Judd said.]
These homegrown terrorists are so stupid; they don’t even understand the oath they took.
