CAPE CORAL, FL - Cape police say they have investigated the comments made by blogger James McGarry and along with the State Attorney's office have determined that the Cape Coral residents message, while disturbing, does not pose a credible threat to council members. McGarry admits to typing a blog entry on a News Press website that suggested in part that if someone were to "take out" the 8 that needed to be taken out, (Council members), that they should not use a revolver because they would have to reload. They should instead use an automatic weapon.
Councilman Bill Deile says he believes McGarry is guilty of a thrid degree felony for threatening a city official. So far the State Attorney's office and the police department do not agree.
