Homeles2 man arrested
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - A mentally ill homeless man will serve 57 months in federal prison for threats he made against President Bush.
Timothy Wade Pinkston threatened in August to go to Washington and shoot Bush. At the time, the 48-year-old was committed to a hospital psychiatric unit.
Court records say he repeated the threat to Secret Service agents, saying he didn't like the president's foreign policy or his handling of the war in Iraq.
Pinkston told a federal judge in Tampa on Wednesday that he is HIV-positive and bipolar and has a substance abuse problem. He said he'd been taking drugs and drinking when he made the threat and didn't know what he was saying. He was previously charged with threatening the president in 1991 and also sent threatening letters to the governor of Georgia.
Well, he won't be homeless anymore and he will be on his medication.

being crazy doesn't mean someone is stupid
We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
While waves wrapped
Intricate lacings of weeds
'Round mule spinners
His cyanotic eyes
Were hard enough to make
The sun turn tail and
Tender enough to attract me
To his world of illusion

Damn I wish I would have thought of that. No car or house payments and a vacation at Club Fed.

I am sure the jails and prisons are full of mentally ill persons. Where else are we going to put them.Bravery is the capacity to perform properly even when scared half to death.
