A Sacramento man was indicted by a federal grand jury for allegedly making threats against President Bush, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Sacramento announced Thursday.

Howard Kinsey, 41, is accused in a Sept. 22 arrest warrant of threatening to take the life and inflict harm upon the president, U.S. Attorney McGregor W. Scott said in a press release.
Agents from the Secret Service arrested Kinsey in Los Angeles on Sept. 25 after investigators found numerous text messages and e-mails Kinsey allegedly sent the president and others.

One of the text messages was sent to a Sacramento County District Attorney investigator which stated in part, "187 for George Bush." The California penal code section for murder is 187.
Under federal law, Kinsey faces 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Earlier this week, an Elk Grove nuclear engineer and lawyer was arrested for allegedly making threats to Bush and others. On Tuesday, Michael Lee Braun, 51, who worked at the decommissioned Rancho Seco nuclear power plant, faces two federal charges of sending threatening letters to Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney and to Rep. John Doolittle, R-Roseville.

[Please don't hurt the Secret Service folks...]
