Man convicted of death threats against Sheriff Joe escapes

A man described as a Barack Obama “fanatic,” who was convicted for making online death threats against Arizona Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, has escaped.

Our Constitutional First Amendment right to free speech ends when we threatens bodily harm to another. It is a federal crime, punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000, to transmit any communication containing a threat to injure the person of another, via the Internet and e-mail (as well as the telephone, beepers, and other means of communication).

On March 14, 2012, 33-year-old Adam Eugene Cox of Knoxville, Tennessee, had pled guilty to death threats against Arpaio and his family. Cox was the “anonymous” person who left numerous online comments last October (2011), at the ObamaReleaseYourRecords site, threatening to kill various individuals who have pursued the Obama eligibility matter. One comment was directed at Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his family:

“I plan to kill Joe Arpaio first.. He will be filled with a thousand bullet holes before the year is out., I promise you this. He won’t fuck with Obama. He will be buried 10 feet under and his whole family will be murdered along with him. Don’t like it? Come stop me. Come die before me.”

Cox was sentenced to jail time, as well as probation and a mandatory mental health evaluation.

Two days ago, however, news came that Cox had fled Tennessee and may be heading west to Arizona.

Phil Benson reports for CBS 5 AZ.com, May 22, 2012, that Cox did not complete the terms of his sentencing before apparently fleeing the state.

Last seen about three weeks ago, Cox reportedly told his probation officer he was heading west.

A warrant for his arrest has been issued. Sheriff’s security has been alerted, and Cox’s mug shot has been distributed to other law enforcement agencies.

  1. Cops will catch him. Coward.

  2. Adam Eugene Cox seeks vain glory. Satan wants to kill God. Therefore whoever wants to kill has Satan in him. It is that simple. Adam Eugene Cox body ,and soul will die in Gods light if he according to God does not repent.

  3. If he wants to swiss cheese Sheriff Joe, he’s in for a huge awakening. Joe has a huge number of supporters who will have his back if this dumbo tries to screw with him. Adam Cocks is a dumbass.
