Sheriff’s investigators say a man went to the home of a corrections officer in Florida and threatened to kill him.
A Collier County Sheriff’s report says David Cleaves was mowing his lawn Tuesday when he saw 28-year-old Michael Affleck. He told investigators Affleck disappeared for a few minutes and then reappeared about 8 feet away from him.
The Naples Daily News reports Affleck threatened to throw a landscaping brick through the officer’s skull.
The arrest report says Cleaves drove away on his lawnmower. When deputies arrived, they say Affleck continued to act in an aggressive manner and threatened them, too. He was arrested on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and assaulting a law enforcement officer.
He remains in jail. Records don’t say whether he has a lawyer.

These creeps who threaten law enforcement should be treated as terrorist and
Have the book thrown at them, no excuses. This is the only way this stupidity will
Stop. Also, legislation is need to protect our police. Any threats or actions toward cops
Will be considered a hate crime, and the judges need to hit these creeps hard..
Totally agree !! Our law enforcement Should be Protected !!!!
Only until people are held accountable will this stop. It starts by putting a legal government in America, not a Kenyan born muslim government with a name of barry soetoro
People this is wrong. I will bet you anything that all these cop killers are in favor of Hell-lary and they are doing this in order for her to pass the law on gun control. Some loonys would do anything even kill someone for what they believe. Sounds familiar? These are terrorists

Our policemen have enough to worry about just going to the domestic calls without having to worry about the idiots that just want to be on the news. Why are people like Farakon still walking the streets. He teaches hate and threatens all white people. Also the professor in Georgia that is teaching in the university to kill all non-muslims. If our government would take those type out of the picture our crime rate would go down in a hurry.
An drug-analysis of his urine would have revealed the drugs that caused his stupid behavior.
But what did this guy actually DO? Did he yell at the cop? Did he touch the cop in any way?
Definitely an arrest was warranted, for threatening, if nothing else; he should’ve been sent for 72 hr. observation and a psyche report.
However, if he didn’t hit, touch, or spit on the cop – where’s that assault, again?
