Robert Pratersch has been sentenced to 15 months in federal prison for threatening a federal official and for interstate transmission of a threat to injure. According to the court documents, Pratersch left three threatening voicemail messages at the Office of Senator Bernie Sanders, including threats to “behead” Sanders “ISIS-style,” and videotape the execution.
While what Pratersch did was horrible, I find it interesting that this individual gets 15 months for making threatening phone calls to Bernie Sanders, yet there are public threats and displays of assassination by leftists in Hollywood and media on a daily basis that aren’t even looked at by any investigators at all.
For example, Senator Martin Sandoval simulated an assassination of President Donald Trump at his political fundraiser.
A political fundraiser for @SenatorSandoval simulates an assassination attempt against a mock @realDonaldTrump decked out in Mexican garb. Looks like a man pointed a fake assault weapon at the fake President to pose for a picture. pic.twitter.com/MlT9zjB1mn

In pictures from the fundraiser, one of his guests can be seen pointing a fake gun at a man wearing a Trump mask and Mexican costume. The Trump impersonator then simulates being shot, grabbing his chest and falling back. Senator Sandoval is then seen posing for pictures with the person holding the fake gun.
