(CNN) -- Hal Turner, an online radio "shock jock" and blogger, was convicted on Friday of threatening to kill three federal judges in Chicago, Illinois, in retaliation for a ruling they made that upheld handgun bans, government officials said.
Turner was arrested and charged in June 2009 for posting incendiary comments that said the judges involved in the case deserved to be killed. The three judges he threatened, who had upheld a ban on handguns in Chicago and the Oak Park suburb, testified at the trial.
Now I can't speak for anybody else, but you don't go around advocating the murder of judges if you don't agree with their decisions. Looks like Turner is not only a whack job, but now a convict too, and deservedly so. Hopefully he will get enough prison time to reflect on what what he did.
