Guardsmen Has Been Put in Jail Because He Had Made Death Threats Against Pence

A Pennsylvania National Guardsmen has been put in jail after making death threats against Vice President Mike Pence ahead of Pence’s visit to the state for a 9/11 memorial service, according to The Associated Press. 

Authorities charged 22-year-old William Robert Dunbar on Saturday with disorderly conduct and making terroristic threats.

Within earshot of others, Dunbar allegedly said, “If someone pays me enough money, I will kill the vice president.”

Fellow guardsmen told their commanding officers what Dunbar said after he made the threat at least one more time.

Dunbar was taken to Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center for evaluation and then transferred to the county prison, according to the AP, which cited police.

His bond was set at $250,000, which he was reportedly unable to pay.

Dunbar allegedly made the threats while he was on duty at the Army National Guard Training Center in Richland Township, Pennsylvania.

On Monday, Pence traveled to Shanksville, Pennsylvania, for a a remembrance service commemorating the passengers and crew of United Airlines Flight 93, who perished on 9/11 when the aircraft was hijacked, but not before fighting back against the terrorists and forcing the plane to land in a field.

Pence honored the 33 passengers and seven crew members who died on Flight 93, which was scheduled to fly from from Newark, New Jersey, to San Francisco, California.

Addressed the audience of about 1,000 people, Pence noted the heroic actions of those aboard Flight 93 may have saved his life.

“Without regard to personal safety, they rushed forward to save lives,” he said.

At the time of the 9/11 attacks, Pence, then a congressmen from Indiana, was in Washington, D.C. He soon learned that Flight 93 could be heading for Capitol, and that it was just 12 minutes away.

“It was the longest 12 minutes of my life,” Pence said.

“I will always believe that I and many others in our nation’s capital were able to go home that day and hug our families because of the courage and sacrifice of the heroes of Flight 93,” he added.
