BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A man from Cheektowaga has been accused of threatening to kill multiple political figures — Pres. Barack Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.
In addition, prosecutors say Joseph Conrad Goode, 21, also threatened to kill “all of the FBI.”
“Bill Clinton is only a couple hours away and I am going to f—— kill him along with Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and all of the FBI,” are the words uttered by Goode, according to prosecutors.
Authorities said Goode said he had a sniper rifle and that he was going to have it out when he left ECMC. The threats were made to hospital personnel.
Why? Prosecutors say Goode wanted to kill presidential candidates in order to “see the world burn.” Goode was described by authorities as “the kind of person ready to snap and shoot up a public place.”
Goode will be in court at 11:30 a.m. Friday. If convicted, Goode could spend up to five years in jail and pay a $250,000 fine.
