    Thank you. If you don’t mind, I shall add this to my post about Political violence, since threatening to shoot poll workers strikes me as fairly political and violent.

    I’ve checked several sources for this, since it seems extremely odd, especially the photo or mug shot. It seems to be supported by several sources, though the text is quite similar in all of them. The “mug shot” really does look like a gag – either somebody is pulling the world’s leg or the guy really does have mental issues. I’d make sure to check with the South Franklin Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania Police Department before believing the story. One thing about the mug shot is that there is no scale for height that I thought were standard in these things. The other is that he is obviously trying to look like a complete ninny. I’d have thought that the police would avoid taking such a photo.

    A photo of the firestation from Wikipedia/Wikimedia Commons is here
