A University student is being held on a $1 million dollar bond after allegedly threatening to kill Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-New York.
Richard Ryan Wargo, physics freshman, of Shreveport, was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on counts of terrorizing, communicating false information of planned arson, simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to an Associated Press report.
Clinton is scheduled to speak at the Baton Rouge Rivercenter this Saturday at the National Conference of Black Mayors.
Wargo, a resident of Herget Hall, allegedly made the threat while talking to another student.
The student contacted LSUPD about the threat.
LSUPD and East Baton Rouge Parish Prison have not returned calls to The Daily Reveille.
My question is did the student he told this to go to far? Was this a joke gone bad? Was it an infringement upon free speech? I do hope that the student who reported Wargo was right in his suspicions. I am certainly interested in seeing how this plays out.
