Mitchell Kusick busted for alleged plot to kill Obama, murder trick-or-treaters

Categories: Colorado Crimes

In this Facebook photo, Kusick noted that he was training for an Oktoberfest triathlon.
For instance, Kusick said he thought a shotgun would have been the best weapon to use in killing trick-or-treaters, since it would allow "spraying" of victims. And while he claimed not to have a desire to murder members of his family, he said he had a list of those he'd marked for death -- among them a friend with weapons he wanted.

Regarding his interest in assassinating Obama, he insisted that his motivation wasn't political. Indeed, he said he "believes he has done a good job with the hand he was dealt." His motivation, then, was notoriety of the sort obtained by James Holmes, whose attack on the Century 16 had struck close to home; he said his mom was in the mental health field and had been among the first responders to the July 20 tragedy.

He had studied the theater assault, Kusick said, and had theories about errors made by Holmes -- and how he would have done things differently. Nonetheless, he noted that "I share an understanding of his situation."

His empathy with Holmes could well be even greater now, since both of them are behind bars. Look below to see the 9News report, followed by the aforementioned criminal complaint.

Too bad he didn't act on his thoughts of obama instead of mouthing off. He'd then have gone down in infamy as he desired. And there'd be one, maybe two less POS in the world.

Hey Travis : I was born here, grew up here and have lived here all my life. I never had any problems living here. Guess what? Every state has problems, murderers, kidnappers, etc. Unless you live in La La Land you're NEVER going to be 100% safe.

Clyde & I haven't given up our detour by the elementary school each morning , to begin our daily walks . Even w/ the arrest in the Ridgeway case , we have continued keeping an eye on the children going to school each day . I like to believe our mere presence serves as a detour for one who may be considering ....

Especially w/ four registered sex offenders residing between my house & the school .....

And before 'video games' it was 'movies', Rock and Roll, Dungeons and Dragons, etc. etc.

 

How about some people are just f*cked up?   Don't try to 'blame' something.
