    If police investigation discover these guys intended to harm the president, they have a real terrorist plot and should pursue it to its ultimate source. Then the proper authorities should move with full force against the plotting group in full view of the public. Show us what they can do to those who intend to harm our society. I am not an Obama blind supporter but evidence shows that execution of such plots destroy a society. If someone want change, it must be done orderly, not by assassination.

    This boy needs to be monitored–for real! 23 years old playing cop—please! If he really wants to be a cop I am CERTAIN, there is a spot for him on the force. But anybody that age running around playing cop instead of chasing girls, having a little fun, and doing a hard days work—must be monitored. The next time we hear about this guy, it may be too late!

    This is the most biased piece of reporting I have ever seen. First the guy wasn’t driving a fake police car. Second, it wasn’t retrofitted with lights and a siren. He did have a “portable” red light…just like most volunteer firefighters and medics have so they can get to a scene quickly.

    Last I checked it is NOT illegal to carry a police scanner in NC. REAL news outlets have corrected the “fake drivers license” part of the story. It wasnt (but makes for good hysterics).

    He is licensed to carry a handgun.

    This guy was most likely a volunteer firefighter who had a scanner listening to the air traffic frequencies and carried a side arm to protect him from liberal crazies like this reporter.

    This case will quietly be dropped. I DARE you to report that…but then you probably wont be able to read the press release without it being fed to you.

    Toting a gun and stating he had heard President Obama was in town and wanted to see/talk to him? How bright is this guy? The police were not taking any chances in what this guy had planned although the President and Air Force One had departed about 30 minutes earlier. Looks like this guy had some kind of intention/plan but arrived at the airport 30 minutes after the President departed. It is frightening to think what might have happened!! One simply does NOT tote a gun when wanting to see/talk to the President! Again, how bright (or stupid) is this guy? Am glad the President is safe and sound and I thank God he left the airport before the guy got there.

    Firstly, if the car he was in was the maroon Grand Prix in the photo there, then LOL. That looks nothing like a police car. It’s a car with a bunch of antennas on it, like most ham radio people have. My own car has 3 antennae on it.

    The lightbar is because he’s in SKYWARN, which is the tornado chasers weatherspotting group. Lots of skywarn volunteers have a yellow light bar that they turn on when out in very bad weather chasing storms when visibility is low.

    Yellow flashing lights are legal in most states. Everyone’s car has some form of them already. They’re called “hazard lights”.

    I feel bad for this kid. He’s a ham radio guy, and went to the airport to listen to the radio traffic, which is always pretty busy whenever there’s a lot of law enforcement is together in one place.

    As for the handgun, he wasn’t doing anything wrong, and possessed it legally.

    This case is going to be dismissed at the first hearing. Shame on the DA for even bringing it.

    [...] but yeah, very creepy. Also an interesting study in how easy it is to see you 'Net-print. This article had a bunch of stuff from his online presence, and I saw another that I can't find ATM that had a [...]

    “one count of going armed to the terror of the public.”

    What the heck kind of charge is *that* ?! Sounds like something they just made up!

    He was also arrested in WV in 2006 for pulling people over with a blue light. Is this part of SKYWARN or just being a kook.

    A wannabe with a gun and very bad judgement.
