He’s at large and considered armed and dangerous. This came out last night and the president is ordering that all means possible be used to apprehend this guy. The suspect is 26-year-old Shawn Christy of McAdoo, Pennsylvania.
From TribLive: “One of the first posts came in late May, when Shawn Christy appealed to Trump on his Facebook page, asking him for help with his legal problems in Northampton and Schuylkill counties.
“”Here’s the deal, Trump,” he wrote in the post. “Tell your probation dogs in Northampton County to get off my a–; while you’re at it have my case there vacated. I’ll have you impeached by August, wanna bet?”
“The Morning Call of Allentown reported that Shawn Christy pleaded guilty in April to making terroristic threats to a Berkheimer tax collection clerk in Bangor, Northampton County. In that case, he was sentenced to 12 months probation and ordered to attend anger management classes.
“In a June 3 post, he wrote, “As far as your threat of a bench warrant, know this, I will use full lethal force on any law enforcement officer that attempts to detain me.”
“With the recent threats and the language and the volume and everything that he’s saying, it’s just something that we’re not going to take a chance with not taking it seriously,” said Deputy U.S. Marshal Robert Clark. Exactly. The U.S. Marshals believe Christy may be hiding in the woods in the area. They’re looking for him, but are asking for the public’s help in finding him. Police say if you see Christy to please call 911 or the U.S. Marshals at (484) 358-1974. There’s also a $5,000 reward on the guy’s head.
These threats should be taken seriously. The search for Shawn Christy began at about 5 a.m. Wednesday, according to Robert Clark, a supervisor with the Marshals Service’s Fugitive Task Force. “He is believed to be a clear and present danger to the immediate law enforcement community,” Clark said. They need to catch this guy before he hurts or kills someone.
Christy’s parents say he is not dangerous. “I wouldn’t find him as a threat right now, he’s just angry. He’s angry at the whole situation,” said his father Craig Christy. Yeah, that’s the same guy who was sentenced with his son in 2012. Not exactly a credible voice here.
