How many have thought this?

Mainstream news sources are being pushed this story about a Purdue University student. Note the Faux news link below. Of course, how many conservative pundits looked the other way when threats were made about the Clenis?

A federal jury convicted a graduate student at Purdue University on Thursday of threatening to kill President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, and other government officials involved in the Iraq War, the
Associated Press reported. The student, Vikram Buddhi, is a 35-year-old citizen of India and has been studying engineering at Purdue for a decade. He was convicted of using other Purdue students’ online identities to post crude threats in a financial-news chat room in 2005 and 2006. The jury found his threats could not be construed as criticism of the Iraq War protected by the right to free speech. Mr. Buddhi could be sentenced to as many as 35 years in prison.

Not going to defend the use of other students online identities, but how many have wished harm?
