Ilhan Omar pleads for compassion for man who threatened her life

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar publicly requested Tuesday that a federal judge show mercy when sentencing a man who called her a ’terrorist’ and threatened to shoot her. ’We must teach the defendant love,’ Omar wrote in a letter to New York federal Judge Frank Geraci. On Monday Patrick Carlineo, 55, pleaded guilty to threatening to kill Omar. He faces up to 10 years in prison.

I would like to see all the rabid Leftists get the same sentence for threatening Trump and his family.

I applaud her for her request. To the man who threatened her...you're a fuqqing dumbass and deserve the sentence. Threatening anyone's life is just freaking stupid.

you know, I do believe he deserves to be arrested however, what about the countless media outlets inciting violent threats everyday? Do they get a free pass because money? power? It's all bullshit and needs to stop.

I agree he should be sentenced. Also Omar clearly tried to use this for political gain. I would have believed her that she was being compassionate to the man if she hadn't said "The answer to hate is not more hate; it is compassion." While at the same time being an antisemite

I'd be wary of making that claim cause you'll be opening a lot of doors against Trump and his associates "inciting violence"
