US man sentenced to jail for threatening Florida mosques

WASHINGTON, May 9 (KUNA) — A Florida man was sentenced to one year and a day in prison on Monday for calling two mosques and threatening to firebomb and shoot their worshippers, the Department of Justice revealed.
Martin Alan Schnitzler, 43, admitted to obstructing worshipers from practicing their religion when he left voicemail messages threatening the safety of the mosques’ congregants.
In one of his voicemails he threatened to, “‘personally have a militia’ report to one of the mosques and ‘firebomb you, shoot whoever is there on sight in the head. I don’t care if they’re (expletive) two years old or a hundred,'” the Treasury detailed in a statement.
“This prosecution sends a clear message to anyone who contemplates the use of threats or intimidation to interfere with the right of individuals to worship as they choose, without fear,” said US Attorney A. Lee Bentley III of Florida. (end) ak.ibi
