A self-described Massachusetts “political activist” was arrested Monday night and charged with sending a threatening e-mail to Florida Rep. William Snyder, R-Stuart, an hour after the Arizona shooting that killed six and critically injured U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

The unsigned e-mail, sent to Snyder’s state House of Representatives address on Jan. 8, told the legislator to “stop that ridiculous law if you value your and your familie’s lives.”

Snyder has proposed a bill cracking down on illegal immigration for Florida in a manner similar to what Arizona has done.

Obviously, all the hate-filled rhetoric aimed at Arizona set this troubled person off. Will the Democrats please stop it with the violent, eliminationist talk before more people are inspired to violence?

UPDATE: Pintado, 47, is a student at the University of Massachusetts.

ANOTHER UPDATE: A reader emails: “You would think a 47 year old student at the University of Massachusetts could spell the possessive of ‘Family.'”
