State Representative Randy Fine posted two similar posts on Facebook and Twitter less than 24 hours after the mass school shooting at a Texas elementary school, what some consider a direct threat to President Biden’s life.
The post has received thousands of comments with individuals tagging the FBI, CIA, and Secret Service.
Just last year, a 21-year-old Kentucky man whom Florida investigators said made a private Instagram post saying he would ‘eat’ the family of State Rep. Randy Fine alive and warned him to ‘watch what you say,’ was arrested in Brevard County.
“I get death threats all the time,” Fine told FLORIDA TODAY on Sunday. “This one crossed the line. I think people can disagree with politicians but you can’t threaten to kill them.” Fine, who received the message via Instagram, added that he never responded to the comment.
