Tech CEO who vowed to murder Donald Trump with a sniper rifle resigns

Tech CEO who vowed to murder Donald Trump with a sniper rifle resigns, by Mike Wehner.

If there’s ever been a giant list of things you definitely shouldn’t do in a civilized society, threatening to murder the democratically elected leader with a sniper rifle is probably right up there at the top. Apparently nobody told Matt Harrigan, CEO — well, former CEO, anyway — of network security firm PacketSled.

In an ill-advised fit of blind rage, Harrigan took to Facebook to voice his stance on the future Trump presidency, but rather than providing reasoned, sane arguments to support his feelings, Harrigan simply vowed to murder Trump instead.

Harrigan’s violent rhetoric was quickly preserved with screenshots and rapidly gained attention on Reddit, where it was brought to the attention of PacketSled. Harrigan, as you might expect, performed one of the quickest reversals in the history of mankind, claiming that it was all a joke and a misunderstanding.

A little too much virtue signalling.
