Man Arrested After Threatening President in 911 Call

Johns Island man jailed for improper use of 911.

A Johns Island man faces felony charges after he called Charleston County 911 threatening to shoot President Barack Obama.

Kevin Daryl Salvo faces a single count of improper use of 911 for calling authorities twice early Wednesday morning with threats against the President and disparaging remarks against Democrats, according to a sheriff's incident report.

Salvo, 51, is not charged for the threats, according to Maj. Jim Brady, the sheriff's spokesman.

"Charleston County Sheriff's Office arrested Salvo on a charge of improper (or) illegal use of 911 as noted in the report," Brady said in a statement to local media. "He was not arrested for threatening to shoot the President."

In the calls, which came in sometime before 1:30 a.m. Wednesday, Savlo is alleged to have disparaged all Democrats and then made the threats. President Obama gave his victory speech at 1:00 a.m. Wednesday.

"**** all Democrats... The South will rise again," he reportedly told a 911 operator. "I will shoot the President."

Deputies responded to Salvo's Anglers Pond Road and placed him under arrest. He'll appear before a judge in December on the charge. The report also indicates he had been drinking at the time of the arrest.

Folks...you would have to have lived in South Carolina to understand this dude. BY FAR I am not advocating his sayings or even the reason why he was arrested. The hatred and ignorance RUN DEEP in South Carolina!!! Let me explain: SOUTH CAROLINA 1) First shots of the Civil War 2) Had the oldest senator...Strom Thurmond 3) The LAST state to remove the rebel flag from the State House....in 2002 4) The only state to publicly yell, "You lie", when the president addressed Congress

Common guys we're all American here. Romney lost if he'd won I'd support him, but he lost. I voted for Bam, he won I'll support him. I didn't like George but he was my president, I supported him. This race thing is sad, it bleeds through the commentary. Let's try something new. Let's respect eachother and just hope Prsident Obama does a good for the next four years. I certainly believe Mitt would've tried he didn't seem like a bad guy just saying what it took to win. They couldn't stand the guy because of his religion but that was the republicans only hope in this election, because his game was better. I respect him but I thought Bam deserved another years, we gave George his and again I respected it.

FYI bits fr links i don’t tweet and don’t fully understand derivation of the LQ number [racist tweets quotient]...but assume it factors in population and/or total tweets. LQ does provide a state comparison. if interested in specifics pls goto josch’s links. Tweets range from n-word to calling for BO’s assassination...to wouldn’t care if he was...etc. [CLIPS] ‘Mississippi and Alabama have the highest LQ measures with scores of 7.4 and 8.1, respectively. ‘The prevalence of post-election racist tweets is not strictly a southern phenomenon as North Dakota (3.5), Utah (3.5) and Missouri (3) have very high LQs. ‘SC 1.4; CA 0.5
