FBI agents have shot and killed a man who allegedly made threats against President Biden on social media.
Sources from federal law enforcement informed Fox News that a man named Craig Robertson was fatally shot when FBI agents attempted to carry out an arrest and search warrant at a house in Provo, Utah. This happened on Wednesday, around 6:15 a.m.
Prosecutors claim that Robertson had posted the following message on social media on Monday: “I heard Biden is coming to Utah. I’m getting my old ghille suit and cleaning the dust off my m24 sniper rifle. Welcome, [sic] buffoon-in-chief!”
A spokesperson for the FBI has stated that they are currently investigating the incident. A source from law enforcement also told Fox News Digital that the individual had a weapon.
This whole situation raises many concerns for those of us who value Freedom of Speech.
Why did the FBI go to this man’s house due to a social media post?
Was he truly a real threat?
Did the presence of armed law enforcement lead the situation to escalate irreparably?
Do we support the death penalty, without a trial, for a man who posted controversial statements on social media?
WHY is this happening now?
These are really dark times.
