Joaquin Amador Serrapio Jr. to Plead Guilty After Threatening President Obama on Facebook

Word to the wise: Do not do this, even in jest.

Joaquin Amador Serrapio Jr., a Miami college student, plans to plead guilty in federal court to threatening President Barack Obama on Facebook.

His attorney says he intends to plead guilty to one count of threatening to kill or harm the president. Just a figure of speech, you're thinking?

Not really. He threatened to "put a bullet in the president's head." And asked if any of his friends "wanted to help" in a presidential assassination.

Mr. President

Serrapio, 20, faces a maximum five-year prison sentence, but is not likely to receive that. He attends Miami-Dade College ... for now anyway.

There's no indication that Serrapio intended to act on the threats, but still. One can see how his word choice might have indicated otherwise.

When Ted Nugent looks tame compared to you, it might be time to tone it down.
