A Maryland man was arrested this week for threatening to kidnap and kill Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his runner-up Kamala Harris.
Mann threatens to kidnap and kill Biden and Harris
James Dale Reed, a 42-year-old Frederick man "upset by the political situation," allegedly threatened to kidnap Biden and rape Harris before killing them both, according to the Baltimore Sun. He threatened earlier this month in a letter he'd left on the doorstep of a house that had Biden / Harris campaign signs in front of it.
“We have a list of houses and addresses based on your voting signs. We're the ones with those creepy guns. We are the ones your kids have nightmares about. The boogeymen come at night, ”Reed wrote according to court records.
Authorities managed to catch Reed after he was caught by surveillance cameras and left the letter at home. He confessed to writing the letter as soon as he was confronted by the police and is being held without bail.
Prosecutors said Reed did not know the people who owned the house and that he planned to leave the letter at the first Pro-Biden residence he came across. He reportedly told prosecutors that he was "upset with the political situation" and added that "this will happen because of the political climate".

Prosecutors take this "extremely seriously"
US attorney for Maryland, Robert Hur, said his office takes such threats "extremely seriously."
"Such behavior, which threatens great candidates and fellow citizens, only undermines our democracy and the principles on which America was founded," said Hur. "We will not tolerate any threatening behavior designed to intimidate, harass, or discourage Americans from exercising their right to vote."

Reed's obvious Facebook page describes him as a semi-professional bodybuilder and last week he wrote there that his house had been searched. In the post office he beat the police as a "group of thugs and gang members".
