Cop Threatens to Shoot Michelle Obama, Gets Moved to Desk Job

CHICAGO, IL - OCTOBER 25:  First lady Michelle Obama tours Iron Street Urban Farm, one of the Growing Power farms, on October 25, 2011 in Chicago, Illinois. Earlier in the day Obama visited a Walgreens store that sells produce. The visits were part of the first lady's "Let's Move!" initiative, which is designed to promote healthy eating and lifestyles in low-income areas.

Anonymous officials tell the Washington Post that a D.C. police officer who worked as a motorcycle escort for White House officials is being investigated after he allegedly told fellow officers that he would shoot the First Lady, then showed a picture of the gun he would use on his phone. The Secret Service has been notified and he was immediately moved to administrative duty  — which is appropriate, we guess? There are no signs that Michelle Obama was ever in danger, but considering all the fuss over Ted Nugent's blustering it seems like somebody should have been tackled by Secret Service agents at the very least.
