MLPD arrest man for terrorist threats

On Tuesday, Mammoth Lakes Police arrested Shawn Snyder, 42, of Mammoth.  He was booked for a charge of Terrorist Threats.

Police Chief Dan Watson said that Snyder was arrested after he had threatened to kill two people and blow up the Police Station and Courthouse.

Reports indicated that he was terminated from his job at Mammoth Mountain Ski Area earlier this week and was homeless.  Chief Watson said Snyder was booked at the Mono County Jail with no bail because of a parole hold.

More details on this case are expected later this week.

    He lost his job and became homeless, well now he does not have to worry, he now gets 3 hots and a cot at taxpayers expense 🙂

      Yep, it’s almost like LA news, only it is low key, it won’t get spread all over the news wires. Thank God for that, we get inundated with that sort of junk enough as it is from the media, but I understand news sells.

      Sad though, sign of the times, and that he had to try to make someone else pay for what life dealt him, but that seems to be the way you do it now. hmmm

      And he also gets to enjoy Mike Boo her’s hometown hospitality and enjoy Ma rk’s hometown cooking, what more could dude ask for, Bridgeport jail serves the best grub from LA to Reno, and is second only to douglas county 🙂

          Sean Penn made a reservation at the Bridgeport hoosegow so Rezboy is probably closer to the truth then not 😉

            Rob…Rezboy is only right if you don’t mind being incarcerated,told when to get up, when to go to the bathroom,when to eat,when to sleep…sacfrificing freedom… just so you don’t got to go out and get a job and work for your food and housing…and other things you can get without being locked up behind bars.Sad thing is,thee are a lot of guys out there that do think that way.

    Could this be the result of some of our anti-government media people’s non-stop demonization of “tax-eaters?”

    • Wayne Deja April 5, 2012 at 1:36 pm #

      dennis….no…It’s the result of someone not wanting to look or find another job,looking to make things better in his life,or wanting to deal with what happened to him in a more normal way.

    With the country completely polarized with no let up in sight, one would guess that in a “more normal way” might be venting on the employer and/or his direct supervisor. It is noted that one political group is very anti-government/anti-authority. One wonders just when the hammer
    will be coming down for those who espouse the anti-government way of life?

    What is disturbing is this person’s venting toward municiple authorities: City Hall, Police …

  5. dennis April 5, 2012 at 4:55 pm #

    Why do you suppose the venting was towards the police and City Hall?
    Instead of throwing tea in the harbor – is THIS sort of terrorism where society is headed?

    He’ll end up being called 51/50 and getting every give away the government offers.

    • Wayne Deja April 6, 2012 at 10:12 pm #

      Trouble…..I think I hear your cell phone ringing again….

      • Trouble April 7, 2012 at 12:34 pm #

        Oh, Wayne does have a sense of humor.

    • Wayne Bengotia(Mr. Peebody) April 7, 2012 at 12:55 pm #

      Yep, a 51/50 diagnosis means instant eligibility to collect Social Security Disability checks 4 the rest of his life at yall’s expense !!

    This is not the first time he has been in trouble…I met him once at a hot spring…Seemed like he has “issues” with people, police, and anybody who tries to hold him accountable…

    Interesting how some are more than willing to attack others on this format when those others aren’t around to defend themselves.

    Dennis, you need to take a long look in the mirror and see what you have become. When you call someone who you disagree with a Tea Bagger, when you know exactly what that means, it is attacking them with a slur.

    Your hypocrisy is astounding!

  10. esfotoguy April 8, 2012 at 7:56 pm #

    I knew the guy when he lived in june 8-9- yrs ago and got asked to leave by the sherriff…woman issues and all….not a pleasent person

    Dear, “Bites”

    With respect, the term “Tea Bagger” is a term an angst-ridden group of people call themselves today. It is usually accompanied by manic flag-waving and revolution.
    Perhaps you are confusing the demonized word “liberal” with this term and this is setting you off.

    BTW – Liberal in Webster’s is “free, belonging to the people, to grow up, not restricted, open, giving freely, generous, tolerant of views other than their own, broad-minded, plentiful, abundant, not restricted to the general meaning, not orthodox or conventional, favoring political reforms, progressive”.

    Now, why don’t you give me YOUR definition of the term “tea-bagger.”

    Then we perhaps we can make headway towards a spirit of harmonious interest and mutual understanding.

    Dear Bites,

    Try turning off Limbaugh for a while and see how you feel.
