Is this tactic in some handbook for the politically insane?

(from POLITICO 6/29/2018)

A California man is charged with threatening to kill FCC Chairman Ajit Pai's children because he was "angry" about the repeal of net neutrality regulations, the Justice Department said today.

Markara Man, 33, of Norwalk was arrested in Los Angeles and charged with threatening to murder an immediate family member of a U.S. official.

Prosecutors say Man sent three emails to Pai in December 2017, the month the Republican-led FCC voted to repeal the Obama-era net neutrality rules.

One of the emails, sent Dec. 20, to Pai's government and personal accounts had the subject line "Cheers." The body of the email listed the names and addresses of three preschools in and around Arlington, Va., where Pai lives, followed by, "I will find your children and I will kill them," according to the affidavit against Man.

With people like Maxine Waters out calling on "de peoples" to harrass political opponents, it's not surprising this kind of thing is happening. It's happening pretty frequently, actually. And some of the psychiatric cases who get involved in this type of behavior actually do attack people, i.e. the "softball game shooter."

Rand Paul was on the field of that softball shooting ... he recently was physically assaulted by a neighbor who alleged that his attack was "just neighbor stuff" ... found another article today where a guy threatened to chop up Rand Paul and his family with an axe ...

I dunno ... I must have missed something .... I never once read a passage from anywhere that said "the insane will inherit the earth ..."
