Richard Strauss, a 49-year-old Brooklyn man, has been arrested for making death threats against NYPD commissioner Ray Kelly on a Gothamist article about the department's Muslim surveillance program. Strauss, who has a previous gun possession charge, called Kelly "an enemy of the people and the constitution" three days ago. "A well placed round of 7.62 ammo to his thick skull would work quite well to eliminate the threat that he poses," Strauss wrote. "All New Yorkers should aim their sights (both figuratively and literally) on this piece of excrement." We repeat: Law enforcement is reading the comments.
