William Robert Dunbar got arrested. This is the man who openly threatened to kill Vice President Mike Pence. The 22-year-old National Guardsman from New Jersey said: “If someone pays me enough money, I will kill the vice president”.
Not everybody takes serious these threats addressed to President Trump and Vice President Pence. Is can be noted that there is increase in people which publicly talk about taking the lives of our leaders. No matter what kind of political decisions were made, there is not excuse for this type of behavior among people.

William Dunbar was on duty at the Army National Guard Training Center when he said, “If someone pays me enough money, I will kill the vice president,” Richland County cops said. Witnesses said they alerted commanding officers after they heard Dunbar make the threat.
Officials said that William Robert Dunbar, 22, is charged with terroristic threats and disorderly conduct.
This behavior from obviously troubled young man comes just a day after Vice President Mike Pence had an emotional commemoration of 9/11 victims, with special emphasis on the Flight 93. “I’m also here to pay a debt of gratitude to the heroes of Flight 93 on a much more personal basis. For their actions on that day in these skies saved American lives and as my wife, Karen, who joins me here today knows, it’s a debt I don’t think I’ll ever be able to repay. Because among the many lives that were saved by their selfless courage, they might well have saved my own life that day 16 years ago.” – he added in his speech remembering 9/11.
Dunbar was taken to Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center in Johnstown for a psychiatric evaluation.
He was arraigned by on-call District Judge Michael Musulin of Johnstown and sent to the Cambria County Prison after failing to post 10 percent of $250,000 bond.
