Law Man arrested after threatening to cut CNN anchor Don Lemon into small pieces -

MOUNTAIN HOME, AR (KAIT) - In the days leading up to the midterm elections, police say a Mountain Home man made more than 40 phone calls to CNN, threatening to do bodily harm to one of its journalists.

On Tuesday, Nov. 6, as many voters headed to the polls to cast their ballots, 39-year-old Benjamin Craig Matthews was headed to the Baxter County Detention Center.

Matthews’ arrest came after a judge found probable cause to charge him with terroristic threatening and harassing communications.

According to the affidavit, between Oct. 31 and Nov. 2, Matthews made in excess of 40 calls to the CNN headquarters in Atlanta, GA.

In the calls, he is alleged to have said he would like to “kick the [expletive] out of DL.”

Don Lemon is the anchor of CNN Tonight.

In subsequent calls, investigators say Matthews asked CNN’s operator “Could I be directed to DL’s dead body hanging from a tree?” In another call, made on Nov. 1, he asks “Is DL dead yet? Can you help me kill that [redacted]?”

The following day, Nov. 2, investigators say Matthews made 6 more calls of a threatening nature including one in which he asked to have his call directed to “pipe bombs for DL.”

“The third call references the offender wanting to kick DL’s teeth down his throat,” the affidavit said. “The call placed at 6:13 p.m. speaks of bloody pictures of DL cut up in small pieces like the movie ‘Saw’.”

An investigator with the Atlanta Police Department contacted a detective with Mountain Home police after cell phone data revealed that Matthews lives in the Baxter County town.

According to the court documents, a person who “has personal knowledge of Benjamin Matthews” agreed to listen to the phone calls and “positively identified” his voice.

Further investigation revealed that Matthews made phone calls to MSNBC, U.S. Representative Maxine Waters, U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer, Attorney Michael Avenatti, the Washington Speakers Bureau, and Planned Parenthood.

Matthews is being held in the BCDC on $15,000 bond on five felony counts of first-degree terroristic threatening, nine misdemeanor counts of harassing communications, and four misdemeanor counts of second-degree terroristic threatening.

He is expected to appear in circuit court on Thursday, Nov. 8, to answer the charges.

Were no officers available to deal with the mob of hooded black masked anarchists menacing a defenseless woman and child at Tucker Carlson's house?

This is starting to remind me of UK cops spending millions on combating rude internet comments while claiming they have no resources to deal with gang rapists and slaver gangs.

>guy makes threatening phone calls to CNN man
>mob gathers outside fox news personality’s house to frighten his wife and kids and damage his property while cops are there
>no arrests made at this time
Yeah, what the fuck? So will they be charging the "protesters" who attempted to break into Tucker Carlson's house while yelling about bombing it then?

What the fuck. Doesn't someone have the fucking balls in the mainstream media to point this shit out? Someone could really make a name for themselves by utterly backstabbing the failing CNN by pointing out all this shit they refuse to cover.
Are they mad that they're now victims of harassment, but don't sympathizes with each other? None of them should be harassed. Treat them both equally.
No according to plebbit the guy who threatened CNN is a right winger driven to his action by Trumps rhetoric and the mob attacking/threatening Tucker Carlsons house is a justified protest of right wing extremism.
